Last night, an Ecuadorian lass won Miss Global 2016 in Manila. This morning, a Filipina beauty claimed Miss United Continents 2016 in Guayaquil. Just an interesting detail (similar to what happened years back when Riyo Mori won Miss Universe in Mexico and Priscila Perales got Miss International in Japan) surrounding the very pleasant victory of Jeslyn Santos as she became the first Filipina and Asian to win the Ecuador-based title. This is a sweet vindication for the determined Bulakenya (we share the same hometown on Hagonoy, Bulacan) who never stopped believing in her determination to bring honor to the country. This is also an achievement for her mentor John dela Vega who continuously pushed her ward to reach the top.
Jeslyn’s court is made up of the entries from Denmark, India, Brazil, Mexico and Panama, in that order.
So proud of you! 😀
