I briefly chatted with Miss Grand International 2016 1st Runner-Up Nicole Cordoves yesterday and she told me that she is satisfied with what she has achieved in the competition because she knows deep in her heart that she did EVERYTHING that she can and has overcome so much for this mission.
Now what makes me extra happy that Nicole won’t be just a nominal 1st Runner-Up. Pageant owner Nawatt Itsaragrisil said that she will indeed be part of the different travels for Miss Grand International, and this will be where her speaking skills will come in handy. It also helps that all three Top 3 placers are from the ASEAN region so gathering them as trio all the time will not be a big concern.
So from this point till the next Miss Grand International in Vietnam on October 25, 2017, expect to see Ika, Nicole and Supaporn to be active with the organization. 🙂
