Consider it a small advantage to enter a national beauty pageant being tagged initially as the daughter of a film/TV actor (Cris Villanueva). That is what Zhaniethia Antoinette Carbonell Villanueva – or Zara Carbonell – is experiencing at the moment. But that should change the minute you learn about this Miss World Philippines 2017 Official Candidate’s personal achievements and qualifications.
The 24 year-old graduate of De La Salle University – Taft is already an accomplished host for Color Manila Nationwide who does TV commercials while fulfilling her travel desires via a VLog titled “In Zee’s Shoes” where she has covered Denmark, Paris, Malaysia and Phuket so far.
Prior to that, Zara was an active student during her years at school. She was a cheerleader for Colegio San Agustin’s Red and Gold Boosters all the way to DLSU Pep Squad Dancers. Her gymnastic struts stretch to regular fitness interests in Soccer, Muay Thai and Boxing. And if that’s not enough, she also did a few soap opera guestings whenever she has time free from undergraduate studies to do so.
Zara doesn’t hide the fact that she has always dreamt of becoming a beauty queen. Aside from getting the potential platform to move ahead with her planned advocacies as an individual, she also wants to establish her own identity. She hopes to fulfill this objective with Miss World Philippines 2017. Below is her brief video encouraging support for her bid.
