I have teased you with a former international titleholder, a former national titleholder who is now on TV, former Binibinis, a former regional titleholder, a professional model and a millennial. The variety is good for the sake of discussing who would be the best fit for Miss Universe Philippines. Now I offer you a lady who used to be in pageantry but is now the CEO of her own US-based Tech Company. She is also a motivational speaker
Meet Trisha Bantigue. Watch her Imagine Talks video clip below.
Let Trisha do the introduction in her own words now:
“I was born in Angeles City, Pampanga and I now live in San Francisco, CA. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Political Science and a concentration on International Relations. I have worked at Google, Facebook and Uber and this year, I am now the CEO of my own tech company called Queenly, which is a marketplace platform dedicated towards the formal wear industry. I’ve also taught public speaking to young children and I’ve been a motivational speaker at various events in order to be a role model for underrepresented youth.
I am very passionate about bettering my home country and it’s economy by improving the tech industry in the Philippines, allowing individuals to thrive in it through the means of education, resources and mentorship. I’ve worked with the Philippine Consulate here towards that goal, as well as making sure our culture & heritage remains alive within the Filipino-American community.”
Pageant-wise, Trisha was Miss National Asia 2014, Miss Philippines USA 2015 2nd RU, Miss California Earth 2016, and Miss Asian Global 2017. And just to add a fresh update, she filed her application for MUP2020 just today.
