Here we go with your Binibini 23 who is another independent candidate in Bb. Pilipinas 2017. And she is not one to be ruffled by the collective groups of the two big camps. She mixes well with everyone, and is actually the friendly soul who goes through the competition with an open mind and a lot of heart. Let us welcome her:
“I’m Arah Alvero Salientes, 21, representing the City of San Fernando Pampanga.
I graduated from the University of Santo Tomas with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Travel Management and with all humility, I finished Cum Laude.
My family has always been my source of strength in everything that I do, especially now that I’m an Official Candidate of Binibining Pilipinas. As a family oriented person, I want to impart to other people what our traditions are, so that we can work hand-in-hand with the community to help us with our small acts of kindness; reaching out to sisters and monks of Carmelite because they are the true models of women today who are empowered and has a say on how to make the world a better place even in their own simple ways.
In the future and after I finish Binibining Pilipinas, I want to pursue Law because it’s my dad’s dream for me to finish law…As a future lawyer I will promote equality and respect to promote women empowerment even more.”
And how does Arah size herself up as a Binibini?
“Being a Binibini is more than just the title itself. It entails the real meaning of beauty which is more than just the aesthetics. Binibini values the core of women empowerment with grace and humility. It’s my first time joining Binibining Pilipinas and I’m more than thankful to be participating in one of the most prestigious pageants in the Philippines. People ask me why Binibini, simple, because, this is Binibining Pilipinas. I believe that it takes a lot of perseverance and determination. But the gainful experience and the opportunities that it contributes is something that I should be proud of. That it can give me a chance to be an inspiration to others, with humility in all aspects. I could say that my edge among the rest of the girls is that I finished my education first, for me to be knowledgeable and be able to develop my wisdom and using this wisdom to contribute for the betterment of our society.”
