Late yesterday afternoon, a meet-and-greet event was held at the Celestial Ballroom of Luxent Hotel in honor of Miss World Philippines 2022 official candidate Gwendolyn Fourniol of Negros Occidental. Organized by ProMedia Philippines headed by power couple Paul Izon and Jam Aquino (left photo), the 21 year-old Filipina-French beauty was formally introduced to more than two dozen members of the pageant media that convinced everyone of her good chances in figuring out well in the competition.
Gwen showed flair in answering just about any type of question thrown at her. She showed her independent-minded spirit while maintaining poise all around. In the video above, she explained to this blogger what Pinoy and French qualities are inherent in her to come up with a potential big winner come June 5.
Trilingual as she is, Gwen fluently speaks English and French, and can do more than conversational Filipino. She is mighty proud of her Pinoy heritage which can be traced in the Himamaylan and Kabankalan regions of Negros Occidental. Asked about what song describes her personality, she named the popular French classic “La Vie En Rose” – a reflection of her positivity as a young individual. She gamely obliged everyone with some lines from the song below.
Gwen is looking more and more like a potential spoiler in the national pageant. Given that this is already her second stint in Miss World Philippines, she took great effort in transforming herself into a highly competitive challenger – ready to win the highest crown possible if the stars align in her favor.
Let’s wish her the best in all the remaining weeks of the pageant before the crowning of winners at the MOA Arena on June 5.
