Who do we have here? A Filipina-Mestiza you can call by her nickname “Abby”. Or if you want it in full, she is Gabriela Patricia Madarieta Ortega. She does have Spanish blood infused along with Filipino lineage in her looks. But make no mistake. Her parents are very Pinoy in ways and means.
Gabriela finished her masteral studies in Barcelona and her profession (I will tell that later) will remind you of the same specialization that a former Miss Universe Philippines titleholder finished in the university level. A very engaging conversationalist, she expresses her views very fluidly. While a Catalan accent can be heard by the keen listener, one can easily sense the Filipino pride that encouraged her to give Bb. Pilipinas a try. And oh, I couldn’t as of yet locate a good photo showing off her bedimpled smile. She really turns on the charm the minute she lets out a happy face.
Watch out for this beautiful lass as she joins the beeline for the nationals.
P.S. She is an architect.
