She may be familiar-looking to some, but in general, Gabrielle Camille Basiano still needs a bit of introduction.
This tall Taclobanon (she stands 5’9”) is a product of two national pageants – Miss Philippines Earth and the lesser-known Ambassador & Ambassadress of the Philippines where she won the Ambassadress of Tourism title that earned her the right to represent the country in the inaugural staging of Miss Friendship International in China. She bagged 1st Runner-Up honors in Chengdu where she competed against more than 50 contenders from around the globe.
I have seen this lady blossom into a relatively more trained pageant fighter, and this time around, the lure of making another trip to the nationals beckons.
Will she heed the call?
