For Dianne Irish Joy Lacayanga, Mutya ng Pilipinas 2016 was a good pageant experience that built up her confidence to go for bigger opportunities along the way. She segued to a couple of regional/provincial contests to polish her presentation skills even more and got to win smaller titles in the process of doing so. Is she ready to return to the big city (from Paniqui, Tarlac) and see if she can conquer the Big Dome?
I briefly chatted with her handler – Ef Taberna of KF Tarlac – and told me that they are still in the midst of a 50/50 evaluation of the final decision to go or to let go for now. There are factors that they are seriously weighing and if there will be clarity before the last week of February, then we shall see this girl at the BPCI Office all dolled up for the screenings.
Good luck in the decision-making, Dianne! 🙂
