When Karla May Manonsong braved the pre-final and final screenings of Bb. Pilipinas 2017, she did so with realistic expectations. After all, she is an independent candidate who came all the way from San Jose del Monte, Bulacan with no camp support and training whatsoever. Now as your Binibini 29, she has been adopted by Kagandahang Flores and has formally started her polishing for a better presentation as one of this year’s Official Candidates.
But how much do you really know about her?
“I am a 24 year-old freelance model and have been doing photoshoots and runways since 2011…But then, I am also a certified newbie in the pageant world. I have never tried any national pageant..and I really feel blessed that in my first try..I have been chosen to be one of the Binibinis.
I am a Foreign Service graduate and it took me 5 years instead of 4 to finish the course because I am a working student.”
How is she taking it (being a Binibini) all in?
“This is something really surprising..Yes it is my dream.. but this is the dream I nearly gave up on because I never had any title when I joined smaller pageants even if I always get special awards. But I know I am competitive.
I really feel honored and blessed as it makes me feel like I am one step closer to my dream despite all the hindrances I’ve been through. Now that I am here, I will hold on to that dream and strive to be the better/best version of a Binibini.”

What fate awaits Karla May in the national competition? Is she in it to enjoy the experience at this point or is she willful and fortunate enough to be first-time lucky as a Binibini?
Let’s talk about Miss Manonsong now, dear readers. 🙂
