Binibini 3 Angela Lauren Fernando always chooses to spend her time productively. We all know that the ladies are on a much-needed break from pageant activities. But instead of just going into staycation mode and the like, she went to her hometown of Lubao, Pampanga for a family reunion as well as a medical mission in the community.
You see, this beautiful Binibini comes from a clan of Doctors. And being one herself, the heart for public health service is in place, just like a lawyer who makes it a point to accept pro bono cases on a regular basis.
So let’s get to the heart of this post now to see how Binibini 3 answered our Lenten Q&A.
1) Do beauty pageants and religion make a good mix? Explain your answer.
Yes, beauty pageants and religion can mix because I believe that the celebration of beauty – inside and out – is a recognition of God’s wonderful creation.
2) How spiritual are you as a Binibini?
More than praying everyday, being spiritual is living a life of love, kindness and humility. I make it to a point that I keep these in mind in everything that I do. These and my faith keep me grounded.
3) What is the most selfless act that you have made to another person or group of persons outside your family?
I remember volunteering for leadership roles back in college. I could’ve been a regular student but I offered my time and effort to be of service to my fellow Thomasians.
4) Would you go for a Binibini who is religious with a lot of restrictions or someone who is liberal and with a come-what-may attitude in life?
I think there is no choice to be made because a empowered woman can both be liberal and free-spirited while being grounded by her faith.
I can say that Angela’s Bb. Pilipinas commitment is firm after having been told that she decided to skip this year’s Medical Board Examinations first to concentrate on her pageant bid. Not an easy decision to make, but it’s better to look back in the future and say that she has done her Binibini dreams justice and answered her desire to be confidently beautiful with a heart. In her own special way, of course. 🙂
