Marie Irisha ‘Mia’ Arcenas is Cebu’s Pride in Bb. Pilipinas 2012. The 21 year-old (she will turn a year older by March 13) businesswoman holds the flashiest credentials among the delegates – not that it pulls a lot of strings in a national beauty competition. A Summa cum Laude graduate with a degree in Apparel Manufacturing and Management from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, she is currently running one of the family businesses, aside from being the Trends Editor of Zee Lifestyle Magazine and an active member of Beautiful Cebu Movement Foundation Inc. If that’s not enough, she sings and dances well, does occasional theatre performances and plays various musical instruments. During her down times, she also maintains two personal blogs – MIA and Mia.Cake. Whew! Does the girl even rest?
The 5’7″ Mia cannot be faulted for having a killer body as well, highlighted by a 23″ waistline that will never escape the stares and whistles of people around. Mentor Rodgil Flores made sure that all her assets – tangible or otherwise – are flaunted every step of the way.
What else is she aiming for? For starters, she joined the Philippine’s premier beauty pageant to win and serve the country as its representative in one of three international tilts BPCI is sending its winners to. Will she get a crown on April 15? What do you think, dear readers?
