My last teaser for the year 2019 isn’t much of a tease. It can be called an ultimate seduction – a one big final thrust, if you will.
While she may not be saying it outright, Katarina Rodriguez has been leaving hints here and there about the possibility of extending her colorful pageant career to the fullest. You simply need to read between the lines to sense what kind of future plans are being considered. And at her age of 27 now, time is not giving much of an extension beyond 2020 if she is serious about giving it one final go.
Her advocacies are already intact – being a Peace Hero for Teach Peace Build Peace Movement and a Children’s Right Activist (and Ambassador) for Save The Children. On top of that, she can think on her feet and express her meaningful thoughts well.
Having two national titles tucked under her belt, Katja should have moved on from pageantry by now. But the build up from Miss Intercontinental 2017 to Miss World 2018 is like assembling a totem pole where the topmost part is still missing an important piece. And if she pushes through with Miss Universe Philippines 2020, then it will be like the 3rd part of a trilogy where the last chapter will have all the exciting elements of a long story waiting for one big epilogue.
