Joselle “Elle” S. Mariano – as I have previously blogged – has already made the rounds of different national beauty contests the past few years with the revived Miss Republic of the Philippines as her personal best to date by winning Miss Luzon.
Elle is 21 years old and a Tourism major from Cavite State University Main. She was a National Champion Swimmer – a sport she started to get good at the minute she made her splash in the olympic-sized pools when she was only 8. She began competing for nationals since grade 4 up to college. A peak in her participation in this aquatic discipline happened last 2010 during a swim in the Guinness Book of World Records held at the Diliman Preparatory School. She loves to sing, specially classical music. She also dances, while dabbling in calligraphy and some water color paintings.
How does being an Official Candidate of Bb. Pilipinas 2017 strike her?
“Becoming a certified Binibini is already a big achievement for me. To make it this far is something that brings out endless excitement (and nervousness) on my part. Now that I am your Binibini 5, I’m all set to conquer the stage of Binibining Pilipinas 2017! Get ready for Elle!”
Elle may be an independent delegate for now, but only time will tell if she will eventually be taken in by one of the two big camps in the days to come. 🙂
