Let us take a closer look at Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 Official Candidate #26 Justine Mae “Jaya” San Jose representing Calabarzon. She is the lady who was practically raised in Doha, Qatar but decided to pursue her college studies in the Philippines. She won Binibining Laguna 2015 and then joined Mutya ng Pilipinas Calabarzon 2016 which she mightily won and earned her the ticket to this year’s national search.
Here’s the 411 on Jaya:
Justine Mae Alcaide San Jose, 19 years old, was born in Mamburao Occidental Mindoro, her mother’s home town. But after 2 yrs they moved and built their house in her father’s hometown in Pila Laguna. She grew up in Doha, Qatar from age 4. She studied her pre-school until she graduated high school in Philippine School Doha.
Jaya started modeling at age 14. She has been doing ramp, pictorials, movies and photoshoots. She is a freelance model in Doha and in the Philippines. She returned to the Philippines last 2012 to start her college in Colegio de San Juan de letran taking up AB Communication.
Will Jaya soar high in the competition? Will she follow the trail of last year’s Janela Joy Cuaton who was also a Doha-raised lass? We’ll see very soon! 😉
