Fate works in mysterious ways. And in the case of Katrina Dimaranan, the word “Tourism” does have an amusing affiliation to her pageant career in the Philippines.
Back in 2012, she was crowned Bb. Pilipinas Tourism. She was supposed to represent us then in China-based Miss Tourism Queen International. But the representation did not push through due to the inability of the Chinese organizers to stage one.
This year – 2021 – she was named Miss Universe Philippines Tourism, with no international pageant to compete in.
Fate indeed is telling her something.
