From Alubijid to Villanueva, below are the 20 Official Candidates for Miss Kuyamis 2021 during their virtual presentation yesterday. This year’s batch is a great level up from previous editions. One of them will become the successor of the reigning Isobel Teaño who will get the chance to represent the Province of Misamis Oriental in the nationals.
Check out their photos in the grid.
The Finals will be held in January 7, 2020 to be streamed live on the Explore MisOr page. I am so bummed that – due to the pandemic – it will be unlikely for me to fly to Misamis Oriental to cover/judge the pageant. It has been my annual trip since 2018. But I am happy nonetheless that the organizers assembled a strong group of ladies for 2021.
I will endeavor to give the less talked-about ladies their share of the spotlight in this blog. On my FB and IG social media accounts, I have already given a lot of them adequate exposure.
So let’s begin with this lovely phenomenal woman representing Misamis Oriental. Caroline Veronilla is a Magna cum Laude graduate of Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan with a degree in Development Communication major in Development Journalism last 2015. She was also recipient of the Dux Gregis Award for Sowing Young Leaders for Service during Magis Awards 2015.
A staunch advocate of World Vision Philippines where she is a Donor Education Specialist, Caroline has always had children’s welfare in the core of her charitable activities. In fact during this quarantine period, she was able to organize a fund-raiser to help provide school materials to more than twenty children in World Vision Communities.
“…Our simple gifts will definitely inspire them to value their education and persevere in school. I am also hopeful that by supporting children, we can increase youth participation and engagement in local, national, and global levels – a factor crucial in ensuring that programs and processes are inclusive and appropriate for young people.”
“As I continue to serve vulnerable children, I hold on to the idea that their stories need to be heard so they can have the opportunity to make their dreams come true. I vow to use my platform to encourage meaningful storytelling and conversations that will bring us to work together for their benefit…”
Caroline is also actively promoting the latest tourism campaign of her province called #ExploreMisOrMore where she focuses on one beautiful local destination at a time to familiarize people on what they can experience and explore in the place.

“The Provincial Tourism Office of Misamis Oriental recently launched it’s newest tourism campaign entitled, EXPLORE MISOR MORE! This is also very timely as the province celebrates Tourism Week.

Bahalag di pa ta kalaag karon, at least we can still experience the beauty of our province online.”
