Leren admitted that she didn’t expect to get the top crown because of the tough competition given by 56 other delegates vying for the same honor. But she promised to do her best, and was rewarded with the Philippines’ opening salvo for 2016 as she was named winner right before the start of fireworks for the New Year.
Expect Leren to make the rounds of TV guestings in the upcoming days. The Filipinos will definitely love hearing her own account of how she was able to make it.
Mabuhay ka, Mutya ng Pilipinas Asia-Pacific International 2015 and Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2015/16 Leren Mae Bautista! 😀
