The former SEA Games Gold Medalist for the Philippines in the sport of Taekwondo is now ready to kick some serious ass in Bb. Pilipinas 2017. At 26, this is a now-or-never situation for Camille. I will let her take the spotlight, as follows:
“I am a simple, cheerful & strong person. Aside from being an athlete, I’m also a soft-hearted person. Being an Official Candidate of Bb. Pilipinas 2017, I can say that I’m amazed & thrilled being part of it because I wasn’t expecting anything. After all, I’m just a newbie in the world of pageantry.
As we continue our day-to-day activities in for Binibini, I will simply enjoy my journey. For me, it is also a great achievement or another significant moment added in my life. And I’m very grateful to be part of this prestigious pageant in our country. Hopefully, I will be able to represent our country like before when I was still an athlete. The demands are far more daunting, to be honest. But with the constant love and support from those who believe in me, I might just be able to make it through. Thank you so much, Tito Norman! God bless. 😊”

The road to the crown can be tougher for an independent candidate like Maria Camille Manalo. She is counting on the unconditional support of everyone who encouraged her to join. Because when the going gets tough, she will definitely need people she can lean on – her handlers, designer-friends, family, friends and all. She is tough as a nail, though. If she can give her undivided focus till late April, she might just be able to win BPCI over and gain the nod for one of the titles she is qualified for.
Let’s talk about your Binibini 17 now, dear readers. 🙂
