Earlier today, the Virtual Press Presentation of the Aliwan Fiesta Digital Queen 2021 Top 12 Finalists was held with members of the pageant media to doing initial checks on the ladies vying for the title. This annual competition – formerly known in the old normal as Reyna ng Aliwan – focuses on the different festivals being celebrated around the country with the lovely faces of the contenders leading the way in promoting their respective towns or provinces’ celebrations.
This year, twelve ladies – four each from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao – are in the hunt for the crown. And they are:
Krishia Mae Abad of Tarlac City
Coleen Beatrix Alcarde of Iloilo City
Sharmaine dela Cruz of Zamboanga City
Keith Arboleda of Echague, Isabela
Shealtiel Kyze Cahilig of Malay, Aklan
Jayvee Lyn Lorejo of Mawal, Davao De Oro
Vjie Matias of San Manuel, Isabela
Shanyl Kayle Hofer of Minglanilla, Cebu
Jeramie Mingo of Iligan City
Chynna Kaye Verosil of Pangasinan
Cherry May Regalado of Kalibo, Aklan
Krysti Ann Villarias of Cabadbaran City, Agusan del Norte
The virtual pageant has four (4) different preliminary segments scheduled for the entire month of September going into early October. They are Pride of Place, Talent & Skills, Queens for a Cause and Evening Gown Competition. By October 9, the Awarding and Coronation Night will select the successor of last year’s Jannarie Zarzoso (right photo) who completed a meaningful reign that saw her getting engaged in several charity and community-assistance activities made more important because of the pandemic still happening in our midst.
