Since tomorrow is the Red Carpet Presentation of Miss Universe Philippines 2020, I expect at least one Cebuana to be formally introduced as Official Candidate. Gut-feel is telling me that the former Binibining Cebu Charity will show up and be counted. I say gut-feel because the names of the contenders will only be revealed during the event.
Will we see each other tomorrow, Tracy Maureen Perez? With you wearing the Cebu or Cebu City or Mandaue City sash?
From among the 2018/2019 titleholders of Binibining Cebu, Tracy Maureen Perez was the only one who went to the nationals during her reign as Binibining Cebu Charity. Last year, she took a chance with Miss World Philippines where she grabbed a spot in the Top 12 during the Finals. It was the pageant that afforded her a good experience of how things are being run on a larger scale – and something that should motivate her to resurface this 2020. As a Binibini for Bb. Pilipinas or aspirant for Miss Universe Philippines or Mutya Pilipinas, I hope?
You see, Tracy has a far more impactful presence in person than what you can see in the photos here. She exudes tempered vibrance – an elegant level of grace that trips somewhere between being queenly and relatable. Personally, I can’t wait to see her extend the pageant journey because she could be a winner in the making.
