As a pageant blogger, I’m supposed to come up with my new hot picks for Miss Universe Philippines 2020 by now. But I am still sticking to a good number of these #PhenomenalWomen because each one of them deserve to be seen and heard. The efforts they give in sustaining visibility in social media and other digital platforms – along with the APs and glam teams – are commendable.
So let me present my running Top 25 favorites – or the upper half of the 50 Official Candidates.
Please support each one of them in the competition’s #RingLightSeries.
Sharing with you last night’s live chat of the Ashties with Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates Apriel Smith, Lou Dominique Piczon and Tracy Maureen Perez – representing Cebu Province, Mandaue City and Cebu City respectively.
Kudos to the APs and glam teams of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates for coming up with exciting new photoshoots of the #phenomenalwomen! Loving the surprises they give me everytime I check on my news feed.
Below are samples of shots from their latest pictorials.
So who is just as happy as Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach using their #HuaweiP40PH smartphones? These Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates certainly are!
With its 50MP Ultra Vision, 12MP Telephoto, 3D Depth Sensing and 40MP Ultra Wide Cine Cameras, they can take pictures almost like pros. The Quad-Curve Overflow Display makes the unit feel like a flowing wonder in their hands.
What’s more, you can get a free Band 4 with each purchase.
Just last October 2019, Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidate Lou Dominique Piczon of Mandaue City created the campaign called “Rise Up”. The goal is to create a platform where people can openly discuss their feelings and experiences with depression, anxiety and other similar mental illnesses that are very prevalent nowadays.
For her first project under the said campaign, she decided to conduct a seminar touring around universities in Cebu. Together with Dr. Chen Tan (a Psychologist doing his own practice and touring around schools to conduct talks about depression) and Ms. Marini Fernandez (a filmmaker who had bouts with mental illness prior), they were able to get four approvals from the same number of universities where they held two sessions in one day. It also doubled as a fundraiser. She sold RiseUp shirts with the proceeds given to her chosen charity RESTORE Children and Family Services (which caters to traumatized victims, kids and families).
Lou still wishes to conduct another project for RISE UP soon. But for the meantime, she remains open to anyone who wishes to talk about their problems and feelings. Ever since Rise Up started, plenty of troubled teens have been reaching out through her social media platforms. This could only mean that the campaign is effective.
This quarantine, Lou tried to spread positivity through her advocacy pages (Rise Up campaign and Miss Universe Philippines – Mandaue – both on FB) and IG with empowering one-liners and ways of coping with the ECQ. She also helped raise funds and collecting materials especially for Mandaue City Hospital which is now a Quarantine area.

Aside from that, Lou keeps herself busy with work. She takes care of her two dogs and do household chores. She also works out, reads and binge watch on documentaries the rest of the day.
“As much as I want to go out and help in distributing relief goods and PPEs, I am not authorized to do so. We have a very strict guideline to observe and with very limited resources so I do as much as I can at home with information I receive online.” said Lou
Community quarantine is all I need to think of other ways to spend my time more productively. And with 31 of the 51 #BeyondTheCoastlines videos for Miss Universe Philippines 2020 already released, I made a clip combining bits and pieces of their efforts.
Hi! Norman here. When I'm not working, I spend most of my free time planning on daily blogs. If you will notice, I always make sure that a fresh topic comes out everyday - not an easy thing to do but it's all good. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the visit!
