I have personally known Leren ever since she won Mutya ng Pilipinas 2015. And she is such an easy person to be with. I remember how – during our pageant judging for Rajah and Rahnee 2016 in Cotabato City last month – she was game enough to eat street food in the middle of the night (and practically the middle of the road) when there was no longer any open restaurant anywhere except for a 24-hour Lugawan and Chicken Barbecue stall. She enjoyed the experience with everyone. And her bonding with the crowds and photo op seekers never fail to leave a positive impression of her down-to-earth personality.
Below is a lookback to her crowning moment late last year in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Enjoy the remaining days of your beautiful reign, dear Leren. And I will see you around in Manila once you return. Before Christmas, hopefully! 😉
