Get to know your #Binibini40 Joanna Tolledo through her work evolution as a Shadow Teacher-turned-Guidance Counselor-turned-Businesswoman.
Joanna, 25, is proud of being both an Ilocana and a Bicolana. Her mom is from Pangasinan and her dad from Catanduanes. She grew up in Caloocan City, though. Before finishing a degree in Psychology, she was on scholarship at the University of Caloocan and this gave tremendous relief to her parents.
During college, Joanna trained in a SPED school as a shadow teacher a the period when she started to advocate for children with special needs.
After graduation, she immediately applied as a Grade School Guidance Counselor in a private school. Pageants became her thing only when she joined Miss Caloocan way back 2014 and won as first runner up.
At the moment, she is a model and entrepreneur at the same time. She runs a distribution company – importing international brands here in the Philippines.

Earlier at the launch of Ali X – the cool, hip and newest wing of Ali Mall at The Araneta Center, the 40 Binibinis of Bb. Pilipinas 2019 made their first public appearance. The ladies really enjoyed the Art+LifestyleXInterest vibe of the place.
Below are some of the photos taken during the event.
First official photos of the forty new #Binibinis right after their selection for Bb. Pilipinas 2019
Official numbers to follow.
Interestingly enough, seven of the ten ladies who became Official Finalists for Century Tuna Superbods Ageless 2018 are familiar names and faces in pageantry like Miss World Philippines 2012 Queenie Rehman, the beautiful Kim Ross delos Santos, the very sporty Alexandra Faith Garcia, former Mutya and Miss World America runner-up Maureen Montagne, former Miss Philippines Earth runner-up Joanna Tolledo, the inspiring Christine Balaguer and former Miss Bikini Philippines participant Mariah Nilo.
Who do you think will do well in the fitness-driven competition among them?

Tonight, two beauty pageant finals will unfold simultaneously.
First is the Miss Global Philippines 2017 at Resorts World Manila where Camille Cj Hirro will crown her successor among the 22 beautiful contenders below. See who will take home the victory at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.
Best of luck to all the ladies, but most especially to my favorites Jacqueline Mayoralgo, Mary Ann Mungcal, Charmaine Aller, Frencheska Frias Nueva and Christine Balaguer.
normannorman.com will be at the venue to cover with Joy Arguil and Joseph Gerard V. Jose.
And over at the PICC Plenary Hall at CCP Complex in Pasay City, the thirty (30) candidates of Miss Manila 2017 will try to outshine each other as they go onstage for the crowning of a new face for the city to succeed Cristelle Tolentino.
I have more than a few ladies here who I want to land on top, such as former Binibini 4 Maria Gail Tobes, Kristine Montes, Joanna Tolledo, Katrina Sese and Athena Catriz.
Who will be the lucky girl to win PhP1 Million Pesos in the end?
There are thirty (30) ladies competing for Miss Manila 2017 which will have its finals this coming June 24 at the PICC Plenary Hall. Some of the faces are distinctly familiar, like Maria Gail Tobes who was Binibini 3 during Bb. Pilipinas 2017 or Diana Mackey who took part in a previous edition of Miss Philippines Earth or Athena Catriz who was Miss Summer International Philippines a couple of years back or the previously-blogged Glenn Aeela Krishnan sister of Mutya ng Pilipinas Ganiel Krishnan and a deadringer for Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.
