Your #Binibini11 Ma. Andrea “Aya” Abesamis has long stepped out of the shadows of her pageant-famous mom – Bb. Pilipinas Universe 1984 Desiree Verdadero Abesamis – and made a decent name in the modeling world and her involvement with PMAP (Professional Models Association of the Philippines). This year, it looks like she will slide just a little back inside the wings of our Miss Universe 1984 3rd Runner-Up for the duration of Bb. Pilipinas 2018. It can’t be helped. Try as we might to separate the two, there will always be points of comparison. And I am not even including her cousin – Bb. Pilipinas World and Miss World 2003 Top 5 placer Mafae Yunon-Belasco who is helping her out in some areas of preparation. Yet.
So let’s cut Aya some slack and give her the chance to shine on her own merits. This is her personal interview video now.
