Now here’s one fresh-faced lady I want to see suiting up for Bb. Pilipinas 2017 – a world traveler who goes by the uniquely-spelled nickname “Patrik” but is Ana Patricia Asturias in real life. She hails from Tacloban. Her photo grid above is just a sampling of pictures from her visits to Reykjavik, Japan, Milan, Venice and Barcelona. But more than visiting other countries, she really wants to be a pride of the country and a spokesperson for her personal advocacies. The nationals could be an effective route for that.
Here is more of 5’6″ Patrik and how she describes herself:
“My name is Ana Patricia Asturias. I introduce myself as Patrik, which is the nickname given by my parents for wanting their 3rd child to be a boy. I grew up in a big family living in the city of Tacloban where I lived a simple childhood. I then moved to manila to finish my college degree at the University of Santo Tomas. I can say that I’m happy to be able to do the things I have always wanted to do the last 5-10 years of my life; explore, discover myself and have fun, crazy and memorable experiences. I had friends who made fun of me all the time but love me at the same time, friends that turned into family.
I discovered that traveling and reading are the things I love and have occupied my spare time and has shaped me to be a person who is positive, deep and (silent) confident – the 3 best words I believe I could describe myself. No matter how bad the situation I’m in, I would always choose to see the silver lining. You can never live a positive life with a negative mind. Now, I’m a Licensed Interior Designer, a fully trained barista and partners with my mom in running a Cafe in my hometown which has been my favorite project for the past year. Coffee and Design are my forte and passion…… I aspire to do more and be more, and ill take every chance that passes me by as an oppurtunity. ❤️
So that is Patrik in (more than) a nutshell.
Your initial impressions about her, dear readers? 🙂
