“Until now I am really overwhelmed of everything that happened to me. God gave me so much and I’m just thankful for that. Lord, this is your plan for me and I will embrace it whole-heartedly. An amazing experience that will surely be treasured forever. My journey has full of learnings and met different people along the way. I am so grateful for that. Winning 3rd place in the 10th year of Miss Summer International and awarded as Miss Photogenic was truly overwhelming. Thank you Lord! I can say that Philippines is really loved by many, not just our tourists destinations, but the kind-heart of people living in it.”- Athena Catriz
Just when everyone is not looking, Athena Catriz placed well in the recently-concluded Miss Summer International 2015 finals in Baranquilla, Colombia. Aside from getting the Miss Photogenic award, she was also named 3rd Runner-Up to eventual winner Fablina Paixao of Brazil. And our bet was just overwhelmed with the participation (as expressed in her personal message above).
Congratulations, Athena! 😀
