You have got to give credit to this 17 year-old for her courage to reach for her dreams inspite of the great physical limitations.
Princess Pura is a deaf individual trying her luck in Queen of the Philippines 2014. And in the event that she wins (which is a good publicity angle for the contest), she could very well be the country’s first deaf representative to an international beauty competition.
While the nationwide beauty contest is not as a big an event as the likes of Bb. Pilipinas and Miss World Philippines, it still is being organized to find our reps for three smaller pageants abroad. And what an interesting option to have someone like Princess wearing the country’s sash in one of them. 🙂
