First off, all the captions in the photos above are courtesy of your #Binibini31 Katarina Sonja Rodriguez who continues to fight strong in Bb. Pilipinas 2017 as we enter the final two weeks of competition. For some, she could be the face of this batch, or one of the more outstanding faces therein.
On my list, she remains in solid contention. I may not have placed her on the highest tier yet, but I am quite certain she will do well in the end. She has loyal fans and followers who have constantly stayed with her all throughout. And given a personality that is always accessible and a temperament that is uber cool 99% of the time, she can only turn those interviews and closed-door assessments into engaging conversations.
I chatted with her recently and these are her latest thoughts about the competition:
“I’ve been enjoying everything so far – taking it all in as it comes and learning a lot. Am always trying to remember why I am competing – and that my toughest competition is myself. I’d really love to live up to all the positive things people say about me.
All the girls are fantastic! And of course, I can only ever control my own efforts. But I’m not letting the pressure get into me. I’ve had a philosophy for some time in always being the person you want to be. If ever, it will just add up to my aura – I’m aiming for sexy. Sexy in class. Sexy in intelligence. And sexy in discipline.”
What say you, dear readers? Where is Katarina standing on yours? 🙂
