Your Binibini 7 Sigrid Grace Flores of Catanduanes always looks glammed up and pageant-ready on the outside. But if you get to know her better, the kindness and genuine quality in her character are far more admirable. A part-time Missionary before getting immersed in this year’s nationals, she is part of Sons & Daughters Foundation which focuses on a number of charitable activities while encouraging people to be of selfless service to others in the process.
“My desire to be a Binibini and a queen is deeply rooted on three reasons. Firstly, my personal advocacy matches the mission and vision of BPCI that if given an opportunity, I want to collaborate with BPCI so together we can touch people’s lives one region at a time here in the Philippines. Also, I want to raise the bar for everyone in the Philippine pageant world that it is about time for beauty queens to show people that we are not mere beautiful faces but beautiful faces with good sincere hearts to offer. Lastly, I want to give my advocacy the podium it truly deserves. I am an advocate of philantrophic leadership. My vision is to help people who have the heart to start their own charitable movements but just happened to have limited or no support, resources and connections. The objective is to help create movements that are dedicated on loving people radically. So we can love on the entire world one movement at a time. These are the things that fuel my fire to go for the Binibining Pilipinas crown.”
Will this be her edge to perform well in the contest?
“The edge could be a deeper understanding of my purpose. I am a missionary and a philanthropist. I completed my missions course in Cambodia 2 years ago and I also have been involved in charitable works in the past 4 years. My heart has always been for love and service and for me that is the real spirit of a beauty queen. I long to be a language of hope and a representation of love to the people whose lives I can touch if crowned as Binibining Pilipinas. Knowing your life purpose is the first step toward living a truly conscious life. A life purpose provides us with a clear goal, a set finish line that you truly want to reach. This is my drive, this is my edge.”
