2017 is the end of the Binibining Pilipinas road for Angelique de Leon. The last edition of the nationals is her 3rd and last time to take part in pageantry (unless someone really convinces her to join Miss Global Philippines which has a wider age limit). And she clearly puts in the message below (as a final response to those egging her to give another contest a try) in the way her creative mind works:
Guys, for real though. I am not joining any more pageants. Not Miss Earth, Miss World nor Miss Global.
I have a job I need to go back to — a job I love and wherein I am deeply loved and appreciated by my staff, my boss and my clients. I am now 27 years old and who gets to be a General Manager at the age of 26? This is an equally important achievement and dream for me. I can’t chase a dream forever if it wasn’t meant to be while others would kill to have my position in the company at a very young age.
A lot would say that they have been a beauty queen during their 20s but not many would be able to say that they were a beauty queen and a general manager during their 20s. My plans have been set for the coming years and hopefully everyone would appreciate that it is the end of the road for me in the pageant scene.
But you’ll never know. You may never see me as a candidate in any pageant but maybe… you’ll see me as a franchise owner? Lol 😂 I was told that if you want to dream, might as well dream big 💪🏼👑 if you can’t win the crown, might as well buy it 😂 JOOOKE 😂
#PeroPwedeDin #MissUniverseCanadaDaw Tapos si Weng De Leon bibilhin ang #MissUniverseAustralia si Victoria Sabina Lorenzo-de Leon bibilhin ang #MissUniverseIndonesia Maglalaban laban kaming mag-ina sa Miss Universe 😂
Angelique Celine de Leon will forever be a Binibini regardless of how many times she joined. From the years when she was still a part of R-L’s Angels to this year’s batch when she crossed over camps to Kagandahang Flores (KF), she has remained bubbly and full of life.
You ain’t seen the last of her – maybe not in pageantry, but in the corporate world where she spreads her smarts, shines brighter and is in full control of her destiny.
Below is a short video of Angelique and her supporters right after the finish of Bb. Pilipinas 2017.
