Youthful-looking Angela Clemente will be Miss Abra for Miss Republic of the Philippines (Photo credit: Angelle Nieva)
Jill Angela Pearl Clemente is a young (she’s only 17 years-old
) and tall (around 5’8″ on bare feet
) lass who takes roots from the province of Abra but is currently residing in La Union due to her studies. A sophomore at Lorma Colleges, she is all set to take her major subjects next year en route to hopefully finishing a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy by 2018.
Young as she is, Angela is already envisioning an advocacy that will support her beloved Abra, and that is “ingenuity in indigenous products”. She wants to help in making these native outputs become more competitive in the local and overseas market to help the livelihood of people where she came from.
While studies will always be a priority, joining beauty pageants is, as Angela termed it, a magnificent dream that is now starting to take shape. Let’s see if this girl – who was selected during the Region 1 screenings by Baraka Model Management International – has what it takes to step up to the plate once she starts competing with the other beauties in Miss Republic of the Philippines.
Good luck, Angela! 🙂
She is all of 5'11" and a native of Ilocos Norte
I’m a sucker for provincial beauties who remain untapped but showing loads of potential for national pageantry. And this statuesque headturner from Ilocos Norte might be the girl to face up to the glamazons of the representatives from the Filipino Communities of Austria and Italy (both circling the 6′ mark
) in the ongoing search for Miss Republic of the Philippines.
Her name is Sheena Seinne Bolaños Dalo, or Sheena Dalo for short. A freelance fashion model up north who also works as an Airport Rep with the Provincial Capitol in Laoag City, she is 24 years old and all of an enviable 5’11” (even slightly more) in height. And it would be safe to say at this point that she will be proudly wearing the sash of Miss RP Ilocos Norte when the candidates are announced middle of next month.
Sheena was sourced by Baraka Model Management International for Miss Republic of the Philippines during the provincial screenings. Some of you might wonder why she would join Miss RP than the other nationals which will have pageant missions abroad. Well, let’s just say that education is a big come-on for her. She doesn’t come from a well-off family (her father is a farmer and her mother a housekeeper/nanny), so getting the chance to pursue higher studies (on top of her degree in Hotel/Restaurant Services) is of prime importance.
Watch out for Sheena, dear readers! 🙂

Johnmar ‘JM’ Siuagan was proclaimed Mister Ilocandia 2015 over the weekend
JM actually got the most number of special awards in the competition
Just like the Ginoo ni Daragang Magayon Festival 2015 which had its finals over the weekend, another male pageant was culminated up north with the announcement of the Mister Ilocandia 2015
The top placer is 5’9″ Business Administration graduate Johnmar “JM” Siuagan from Alcala, Cagayan. Aside from being named the Grand Winner, the 22 year-old Legal Assistant also clinched a lion’s share of the special awards such as Best in Formal Wear, Mr. M Lhuillier, Mr. Fiteasy Gym and Mister Appeal Org.
JM is part of Baraka Model Management International
The next step could be an expected participation in one of the national competitions. And he should be more than ready for that with the guidance of Baraka Model Management International (owned by Angelle Nieva
) which will support his bid all the way.
Congratulations, JM! 😀
