I had a pleasant encounter with eleven (11) of the candidates of Miss Global Philippines 2016, and Perlyn stands out with her oh-so beautiful face and shapely body. Now in her mid-20s, she is glad that the chance for a single mom to join a beauty pageant is still available. She loves taking part in the contest, and being the mother of a 5 year-old son as well. She is also quite articulate – more than just eye candy, if I may add.
Perlyn knows that getting pregnant at 19 practically dashed all hopes of doing pageants. But with MGP2016, she is all-out in proving her worth. Just recently, she topped the swimsuit competition held in Boracay. And that special honor is setting her up as one of the strong favorites to do good in the finals scheduled for June 4.
Will the organizers set a new trend for the type of winner to succeed last year’s Candice Ramos? That will really be both newsworthy and significant, in my opinion. And for someone like Perlyn Ocampo, I sure would give my nod in a heartbeat!
