Please watch the entire #BeautyWithAPurpose video featuring Miss World Philippines Katarina Rodriguez below and be touched with her project for the devastated City of Marawi.
But before you click, here are just a few sidelights that went into the filming of the same:
1) The part in the beginning where Katja is walking is ground zero of the Marawi Crisis. It is not safe until now since inside those houses and buildings are mines that still remain unexploded.
2) The church shown on Day 3 is the established fortress of ISIS which has an underground dwelling.
3) Katja wrote the script all by herself with just a few edits from Benj Gabitan because of the sheer length of her writings.
4) Katja thought of this even before winning Miss World Philippines. Last year, she already started raising funds from Katarina’s Closet and Bazaar which was donated to “Save The Children for Marawi”.
Below is the video of the Group 4 Head-to-Head Challenge for Miss World 2018 with Miss Philippines Katarina Rodriguez and the delegates from Equatorial Guinea, Iceland, Senegal, Norway and Guyana.
Now here is how you can help Katja advance to Round 2 in this segment of the competition.
Remember, November 28 (6pm Sanya time) is the deadline for voting through the four ways stated above.
Today, November 20, is the schedule of the Miss World 2018 Top Model Challenge in Sanya, China. We know how Miss World Philippines Katarina Rodgirz prepared for all the important segments of the competition. Amd this one is no exception.

Finally, two Pinay candidates in one photo: Miss World Philippines Katarina Rodriguez (right) and Miss World Belgium Angeline Flor Pua for Miss World 2018. Would have preferred them to be roommates, but I would rather that they become really good friends.
Katja is wearing a Gil Macaibay III creation.
Miss Philippines Katarina Rodriguez is part of Group #4 in the Miss World 2018 Head-to-Head Challenge along with Erna Alexandra Olafsdottir of Iceland, Ambika Ramraj of Guyana, Silvia Adjomo Ndong of Equatorial Guinea, Madelen Michelsen of Norway and Aissatou Filly of Senegal.
So just so you know how the Head-to-Head Challenge will work this year:
The Miss World 2018 Head-to-Head Challenge which returns for its second year with a brand new format.
Presented by Frankie Cena (right photo), the Head-to-Head Challenge is an exclusive and in depth look at every single Miss World national champion. The global audience will have the power to choose their favourite who will advance to the second level of the Head-to-Head Challenge.
In stage two, the winners from each group will face off against another contestant to earn their place in the Miss World #Final30. In this section the contestants will show their skills as an advocate for their “Beauty with a Purpose” project.
Let’s watch out for the Group 4 Head-to-Head Challenge soon!
