#TurningPhenomenal Series No. 3
To be or not to be a #PhenomenalWoman again, that is the question…
In a play of words from a famous line in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the next lady in our series has that thought playing in her mind – be it of her own volition or the encouragement of others.
Bella Ysmael is #AmbassadorForArtsAndCulture and last year’s Miss Universe Philippines 1st Runner-Up. If only the tides are not turning in favor of holding a 2021 edition, then she could ascend the throne by virtue of her (somewhat) ‘Virreina’ placement. That would have been the most convenient route to the ‘Filipina’ crown if the next Miss Universe is scheduled too soon this year.
Otherwise, it’s all about going through the motions for a second time, but with an entirely new dedication in place. And that could be tougher. For a strong-willed individual, though, that is called a challenge.
And Bella can do insane numbers of pirouettes or fouettes if that is what it takes to savor a #1 finish.
Summer heat at The Bellevue Resort in Panglao was sprinkled with the even hotter presence of these two beautiful ladies of Miss Universe Philippines during their location shoot in Bohol.
#AmbassadorForArtsAndCulture Bella Ysmael and #AmbassadorForGenderEquality Billie Hakenson show us how it’s done in their Binikini Swim pieces.

P.S. If you have a question or two for any one of them, feel free to share them in a reply below.
Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo and two of her runners-up – #AmbassadorOfTourism Pauline Amelinckx and #AmbassadorOfGenderEquality Billie Hakenson – have already moved in to what will be their official residence during the reign – the Avida Towers BGC.
Living the good life as Queens, I must add!
PS I believe Bella Ysmael and Michele Gumabao opted to stay in their respective homes owing to the fact that they both live in the metro. The latter has also just moved in to her new abode.
The Miss Universe Philippines Organization is excited and proud to announce the queens’ official titles. This group of intelligent and empowered ladies is more than ready to make an impact on causes and programs close to their hearts.
