Michelle Thorlund, #10 in the ongoing Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016, is one of the most beautiful faces in this year’s batch. She actually possesses eye-catching looks that made practically all members of the media sit up and take notice during the Press Launch at Hotel 101.
And it doesn’t stop at just the physical. Michelle is one intelligent girl with an interesting talent as you will read in her self-made bio of sorts below.
My name is Michelle Charlotte Thorlund. I’m nineteen years old from Orange County, California. I’m currently a part-time model back home but I also go to school. In the future, I plan on becoming a criminal defense attorney. In high school, I studied Latin for four years and even received a national award placing as “Magna Cum Laude” of my class. I love playing piano and play classical pieces from Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov. Another interesting fact about myself is that I am vegan, so I do my best to not contribute to animal cruelty. I believe in helping animals while preserving our earth and also improving people’s health through veganism, which is something I love to advocate.
I am so proud to be able to be the sole representative from the USA in this pageant, representing my home state of California. It’s been an absolute blessing so far and I am ecstatic to be competing internationally in a beauty pageant – something that I never would have dreamed of earlier in my life. I am so grateful to Mutya Ng Pilipinas for everything they do for me and for the rest of my fellow candidates and I’m looking forward to the rest of this wonderful journey!
While some would say that Michelle is just the typical Fil-American lass who wants to do good in the Philippines, I can bet that you will find her most impressive once given the chance to prove her worth.
Best of luck in Mutya ng Pilipinas, Michelle! 🙂
