Maxine Medina sees no reason why a back-to-back is out of reach
Earlier during a rainy send-off hosted by Bb. Pilipinas Charities Inc. at the Versailles Tent of the Novotel Manila Araneta Center, Miss Universe Philippines Maxine Medina was showered with all the warm wishes and positive thoughts that will set her up for the 65th Miss Universe on the right note. Our Queen is brimming with beauty and confidence that one can’t help but think that – indeed – a back-to-back win is not at all impossible. When asked to name at least two contestants who could be thorns in her path to victory, she simply answered “no one” because she is visualizing herself as the successor of Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach come January 30. You might think that she may have gone overconfident. But no, she delivered her answer in such a tempered manner that you can feel the sincerity stemming from within.

Maxine shared that her training has been comprehensive and the only thing she asks for are prayers from all Filipinos to guide and see her through each step of the way. There is no doubt that she will forge ahead and prove to all and sundry that the host delegate deserves to be the next. She has done her homework and would not want nothing more than to give the Filipinos the gift of victory right before our very eyes.
Here is Miss International Kylie Verzosa’s message to Maxine.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE ! MARIA MIKA MAXINE MEDINA Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Raymond Saldaña Photography HMUA : Jp Surco of David’s Salon Styled by : Henry Henry e Henry Designer : Cherry Samuya Veric
Christmas is always a time for joy & togetherness for everyone. And for Miss Universe Philippines Maxine Medina, nothing would make her more merry than to spend December 25 with all her three siblings complete. But then again, she will need to wait till January to arrive before the entire cast will be present – her parents Max and Marife, sister Ferica and brothers Mathew and Marx (photo below
). This is the 3rd Christmas that a member is always missing.
Next month, Christmas will be extended for our bet in the 65th Miss Universe as the family support will be full and unconditional. And this should make Maxine more motivated and high-spirited once she starts representing the country in the most beautiful event in the Philippines come 2017.

Merry Christmas to one and all from Miss Universe Philippines 2016!
In the meantime, I am extending to you Maxine’s warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas to all the readers of normannorman.com. 😀
Maxine and Ferica Medina bonding in L.A.
Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina is not the only rose of a beauty in her family. Of course, there is her mother – Tita Marife to your blogger – who is gorgeous herself. And then there is the younger sibling Ferica who – at this point – is also showing that she has what it takes to follow her sister’s trail in pageantry and become a Beauty Queen as well. And I can only agree.
Ferica doing her own brand of modeling
Ferica has a type of Asian look that is also uniquely her own. And when you get the chance to spend even just a short time with her, the bubbly personality shows in abundance. She may not have the uber
sophisticated appeal of her elder sister yet, but given more training and experience in modeling (just like the photo above
), she could be well on her way to making the Medina Family proud as well. And I believe that Tito Max, her dad who is just as warm as his daughters, would be the proudest (for a 2nd time
) should that happen.
The sisters in Anaheim
Watch out for Ferica in a year or two. Maxine would definitely back her sister up by then. 😉
