Your Binibini 25 is the sole entry of Galatea Family of designer-siblings Jontie and Nickky Martinez. She is Clarice Marion Elbo Villareal, 23 years old, and comes from Antipolo City. This 5’8″ Architecture graduate from the University of Santo Tomas has varied interests which include painting, playing the guitar and playing volleyball.
How does Clarice feel that she got in as Official Candidate of Bb. Pilipinas 2017?
“Everything still feels surreal. I wasn’t expecting I’d actually land a spot in the Top 40 official candidates of this year’s Binibining Pilipinas – given that I am inexperienced and an independent candidate. Just months before, I attempted to enter a major beauty camp although unfortunately, I didn’t get in. Needless to say, it was really disheartening for me which is why going to the screening was actually a snap decision I made just two weeks prior to it.
Many thanks to my family and my handlers who lifted my spirit up, coached me and guided me. Without them, I really wouldn’t be here. Also, one thing I wouldn’t forget, prayers do work; there is nothing a prayer can’t answer. This journey is going to be a one tough ride but I am now ready to face it with conviction and full determination.”
