After a sumptuous Chinese lauriat at the Gloriamaris Gateway, I spent some quality time getting to know this 18 year-old Mutya Pilipinas 2019 Official Candidate who is representing the state of New Jersey. She is actually one of nine (9) entries from overseas communities, and one of two candidates sent by the Canada-based IPEN Group (International Pageant Entertainment Network) of Edgar Sulit. While some will call her a pageant newbie, this young lady has already represented the country in last year’s Miss Teen Universe in Nicaragua where she made the semifinals.
At 5’11”, Ysabel Napiza is one of the certified tallest beauties in this year’s batch, and a likely contender for the newest title of the national pageant – World Top Model Philippines. With her youth chiming in as another advantage in being considered for the said honor, there is something to look forward to in the finals this coming August 18.
A future Medical Services practitioner, Ysabel is maximizing her time for what lies ahead of her in pageantry before buckling down to serious academics by the time she turns 20. Parents John Christopher and Catherine are very supportive of their daughter’s foray into the world of crowns and gowns. If she is fortunate enough to win one of the four titles at stake – or even just a respectable placement in the magic circle – then they will continuously be by her side every step of the way.
For now, please watch a video of my casual one-on-one with Ysabel by clicking below.
