When Nelda Ibe started out her Bb. Pilipinas 2017 journey late last February, she was still middling between plus and regular sizes brought about by her activities as a cadet pilot that involved more of seating in the cockpit and taking training classes.
It only took her a couple of weeks to shed off the unwanted weight and presented herself during the Press Presentation in a shapelier frame that complimented her over 5’9″ frame. And as the competition progressed, she bloomed even more and got the constant approval of the organizers. In fact, she is one of the few Binibinis who never got lost in the shuffle everytime Madame SMA – who fondly called her “The Pilot” – was around. And during Coronation Night, she finally stepped forward to assume the title of Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2017.Here is her short post-victory message on social media:
Another treasured moment that I’ll be forever grateful and beyond blessed! Thank you so much to my loved ones and supporters, you were my rock! Last (Sunday) night was so magical and truly an amazing experience to share my victory to all of you! 👑
I am your Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2017!👑 Or known as your #pilotbeautyqueen 😘 I love you all! To God be the glory! 🙏🏻☝🏻
Dates and hosting details for The Miss Globe 2017 are not yet out, but Nelda will definitely prepare for the competition even more. She is proud of having given her home province of Tarlac a new national beauty queen and intends to level up the achievement to become the country’s second winner in the said pageant.
Fly high, Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2017! 🙂
