She may have failed in her twin attempts to win a national beauty title via Miss World Philippines 2014 and Bb. Pilipinas 2017. But the tall, beautiful and dusky Ruffa Nava of Iloilo will now get the chance to represent the Philippines in an international competition, and a reputable search for international models at that. She will banner the country’s participation in this year’s edition of Best Global Model of the Year to be held in Portugal.
Along with tall and good-looking Joshua Kristopher de Leon (right photo), the pair will be going to Lisbon, armed with the determination to win the country’s first-ever victory in the competition which has remained elusive so far. And by the looks of it, the owner of the search seems impressed. I chatted with Carlos Ventura Martins. He is both pleased and excited with our promising pair.
Let’s see if international modeling is the true big calling of our reps.
Best of luck, Ruffa and Joshua!
