I have shared with you pageant veterans and familiar faces for teasers in next year’s nationals. Now I certainly hope that you will be more receptive of fresh faces. I have blogged one just recently, and all I got were mostly comments that she is still unprepared or inexperienced for big-time national pageants like Miss Universe Philippines or Bb. Pilipinas or that she should still pay her dues and start slow in the lower rungs of contest hierarchy. Let’s keep an open mind for now, and not be absolutely swayed by the results of Miss Universe 2019. I am simply featuring potential joiners, and who knows what changing beauty trends the MUO will lean on in the 2020 edition.
Now here is one for my next entry. And she is 100% Pinay, if you will. While I was told that she is still 50/50 on the matter, she could be gently convinced to give it a shot.
Joanna Kristine Pojas is a Junior Model of the PMAP (Professional Models Association of the Philippines). She is 22 years old and stands 5’8”. A Quezon City resident, she also takes roots from Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Having already finished her BS Entrepreneurship degree from PUP Manila, she has all the time to prepare if ever she decides to apply for Miss Universe Philippines 2020.
Here are more photos of Joanna Kristine.
