Hers is a familiar face that would have prompted any local pageant follower to immediately state the national beauty pageant she has already joined. But then again, there will be some air of hesitation in doing so because the beautiful Ferina Juny Ann de Paz cannot be fully identified with one for various reasons. She joined Miss Philippines Earth twice. Back in 2010, she backed out allegedly due to health reasons. She rejoined last 2013, but had to pull out once more halfway through. There was no mention of why she did it the second time.
Instead, we think of Ferina as one of two Philippine representatives to Miss Asean 2014 held in Chiang Rai, Thailand where she placed 1st Runner-Up to the eventual winner from Thailand.
This time, my sources are saying that she could be training for Bb. Pilipinas 2016. And if beauty camp Kagandahang Flores makes her transformation so dramatic and hard-to-overlook for the screenings, then I bet Ferina will give the nationals her biggest fight ever. On the other hand, another mole is whispering a different tune to my ear. But I need some hard confirmations first.
Fingers crossed for either of the two because both routes can be equally fulfilling!
