Vinie Camille Dy Quiangco for Miss World Philippines 2016
Vinie Camille Dy Quiangco has been a friend on Facebook for almost two years now, but it’s only of late that I saw her soaring more actively in the national pageant scene with her participation as one of the five entries of Aces & Queens in Miss World Philippines 2016. I know that, aside from doing research work, she has also gone into missionary activities in the deep south before finally setting her sights on gunning for a beauty pageant crown.
Here now is the brief bio on this Capiz native who will soon launch her advocacy at Eastwood.
VINIE CAMILLE DY QUIANGCO
23, Sapian, Province of Capiz 🇵🇭
for Miss World Philippines 2016
Trained in international studies, Vinie worked as an administrative assistant and a researcher at the Asian Institute of Management in 2013. She was then involved in studies pertaining to tourism within the context of regional integration and cultural heritage.
After her research stint, she then volunteered as a missionary based in Mindanao for nearly two years wherein she taught young children on how to read and write—the focus of her advocacy.
To further her literacy advocacy, she is set to take her Masters in Development Communication at the University of the Philippines Open University this coming school term. 🌏

The five ladies of Aces & Queens for MWP2016 – left to right: Vinie, Catriona, Arienne, Ralph Lauren and Sandra
During yesterday’s general screening of Miss World Philippines 2016 at the B Hotel in Scout Rallis, QC, five (5) ladies easily stood out among the rest. They are the ones who have been groomed by Aces & Queens for the pageant. And early pageant forecasts are saying that the title is virtually set in stone for one of them.
Catriona Gray, Sandra Lemonon, Arienne Louise Calingo, Vinie Dy Quiangco and Ralph Lauren Asuncion are raring to go full blast in their hunt for the crown. It could be for the experience or the earnest effort of four of them to try and snatch the crown from the heavy favorite Catriona.
Could these five be the eventual Top 5 national finishers in 2016? Or will KF and the other camps (including independent ones) steal the thunder from one or two of them.
Watch out for the final screening scheduled this coming August 23 where the final slate of Official Candidates will be known.🙂

Aces & Queens is proud of their four Bb. Pilipinas 2016 titleholders
There has been a significantly rising interest in Aces & Queens
especially after the beauty camp was able to produce winners for four out of six Bb. Pilipinas 2016 titleholders (Maxine, Kylie, Jennifer and Nicole
) plus the two runners-up (Angelica and Jehza
). And the messages, emails and inquiries (from prospective joiners and handlers
) just keep on pouring in (flooding in, if you will
So in its FB page, an announcement was made to give everyone guidance as to how they recruit and build up their pool for the nationals. Here goes:
Thank you for your continued support to Aces & Queens. We really appreciate it.
For those who have been sending us private messages, we apologize if we have not replied to all of them but let us assure you that we are trying our best to answer all your messages.
For those who are asking on how to be part of the training pool of ACES and Queens, here’s the process:
We send out an announcement through this page and other social media platforms inviting those who are interested to submit their application online. We usually do this around September to October. Then we gather all pre-screened online applicants in a one-day final screening in Manila to pick ladies to be included in our training pool.
Please visit the A&Q page again for our announcement on the screening dates. Thank you! 🇵🇭

Q&A training of the Miss World Philippines 2016 bets of A&Q
The photo above shows Atty. Nad Bronce (2nd from left) doing one of the all-important Question-and-Answer sessions with the Miss World Philippines 2016 candidates of Aces & Queens over the weekend. While this part is considered to be the least physical among the different aspects of training and development of the ladies, it is the ultimate test of one’s capacity to express herself in words intelligently. And added to the other areas which the aspiring candidates are expected to master in time for the national competition, the puzzle pieces should fit nicely and form a battle-ready contender when it matters most.
As the song (“Putting It Together”) made famous by Barbra Streisand goes:
“A vision’s just a vision if it’s only in your head
If no one gets to hear it, it’s as good as dead.
It has to come to life
Bit by bit, putting it together
Piece by piece, only way to make a work of art.
Every moment makes a contribution
Every little detail plays a part
Having just a vision’s no solution.
Everything depends on execution
Putting it together, that’s what counts

Aces & Queens is deep in training their bets for Miss World Philippines 2016. The ladies – which include Catriona Gray, Arienne Calingo, Vinie Dyquiangco and Sandra Lemonon – are currently being mentored by Jonas Gaffud himself who is looking at perfecting the next potential successor of last year’s Hillarie Parungao who placed in the Top 10 of Miss World 2015 in Sanya, China.
By now, the beauty camp has mastered the preferred profile of Miss World Organization for its candidates and likely winner. And aside from runway skills, these ladies are also being immersed into their individual ‘Beauty With A Purpose’ (BWAP) projects and crucial talents for the competition.

While most of the followers out there are already picking Catriona Gray as the woman to beat for the national crown, the other aspirants are polishing themselves to the max so that they will be ready for anything and everything that will comprise the exacting demands that the contest will require.

Best of luck to you, ladies!😀
Q&A training with Nad Bronce of A&Q
If you take a close look at the group photo above, the familiar and not-so familiar faces of the ladies won’t surprise you that much anymore. Standing from left to right are Catriona Gray, Maria Angelica de Leon, Vinie Dy Quiangco, Sandra Lemonon, Atty. Nad Bronce (A&Q’s Q&A specialist), Arienne Calingo and Charmaine Elima. Crouched is Arnold Mercado, while kneeling are Caloy Buendia, Pao Baysa and Mr. World Philippines 2015 Sam Ajdani.
Q&A training is extra crucial for the beauty camp, reason why the ladies being groomed for Miss World Philippines 2016 and Bb. Pilipinas 2017 (for Maine) plus Mr. World Philippines 2015 are getting their one-on-one and group sessions with Atty. Nad Bronce himself.
There are no rigid structures in the way such public speaking enhancements are reinforced in each one. The natural ability of the individual to express his or her thoughts are circled around and improved so as not to veer away too much from the spontaneous nature inherent in the trainees.
Anyways, watch out for the six ladies above and how they will ne polished in time for their respective competitions.🙂
