I have given you spotlight teasers on mestizas and an assortment of halfies so far. This time, we have a Chinoy beauty who was born in the Philippines and raised in Butuan City practically all her life. In fact, she can speak more fluent Cebuano/Bisaya or Butuanon more than the expected facility in Mandarin during Miss Chinatown Philippines 2018 which she handily won.
Marie Que graduated from the University of Santo Tomas with a Bachelor of Science degree in Food Technology. But instead of pursuing laboratory work immediately, she opted to do pageantry. Encouraged by her supporters because of her height and glowing beauty, she could push it further in 2020 and be a part of one of the five national pageants that will be competing for the interest and attention of beautiful candidates to sign up.
Marie stands out in a crowd immediately. She has this presence that is more commanding than adoring. But the minute she speaks and settles in, the real down-to-earth quality emanates and she begins to unfold as a young woman who can hold up her own under the more demanding conditions of the big league.
I would be pleased to see more of Marie in 2020. She may not be the type of everyone. But given the chance, she will do well.
