It was a busy Sunday night indeed. Along with my pageant media colleagues, we trooped to Alex III Restaurant along Tomas Morato for our second Meet-The-Press event. This time, we spent quality time with the gorgeous #Binibini31 Yllana Marie Aduana of Laguna Province for Binibining Pilipinas 2022.
Fondly called Yana by everyone, this bright and cheery Lagunense continues to enthrall with her mere presence. Her smile never fails to captivate. She prepared for a long Q&A with the press and answered each question with the consistency of a true ProMedia beauty athlete. And each time she shared her thoughts, the love for her province gets to be highlighted – most especially now that she started her Tourism Videos that will promote each city and municipality of Laguna.
A Medical Laboratory Scientist and Drug Analyst by profession, Yana shows how she can make things happen in any endeavor she sets her mind on. Neither a pageant newbie nor a veteran, she did her first national pageant last year and walked away with the crown on her second. As the reigning Miss FIT Philippines, she is the personification of a holistic beauty who gives focus on more than just the physical. She is mentally and emotionally equipped to handle the demands of winning a title in the big league.
Yana honestly admitted that her target is to win the Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental crown. Aside from believing in the brand of Miss Intercontinental, she is challenged by the idea of going for a back-to-back win in the pageant where our very own Cindy Obeñita is the reigning winner. If all goes well, then she might just get what she wishes for. She cannot stress enough her desire to nail one of the BBP crowns after covering all the bases in trying to achieve that.
With the help of ProMedia, power couple Paul and Jam and KF, Yana is strongly supported in her quest amidst a sea of strong contenders in this year’s edition of the national pageant.
Best of luck in the coming weeks ahead!
