Resham Ramirez Saeed has the honor of being only the second Muslim to win a Bb. Pilipinas crown – the first one being Reham Snow Tago (left photo being crowned by Cara Subijano) who was proclaimed Bb. Pilipinas World back in 1995. Of course, if you go by national pageants in general, Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 Sharifa Akeel would be sandwiched in between.
Going back to our subject, this Filipina-Pakistani was a dark horse in the competition right from the start. She may not have been the type who would join the hype of the established front-runners, but she almost always gets the attention of most pageant watchers because of her articulate self and very exotic features. It’s true that she was raised in Canada, but she has done a pretty good job of representing Maguindanao and its local culture.
Last Sunday night, you didn’t see the pressure to successfully deliver in Resham’s performance. That’s the beauty of being a spoiler. The weight of winning is inside, but not to the point of showing it on the outside. It was only during the part of announcement of winners in the TV telecast when the camera would pan in her area that you could notice the earnest look in her face of wanting to be called as one of the new titleholders.
That being said, Resham is now one of our new Queens and a fresh inclusion in the roster of winners. The Miss Supranational IG account has already reported her win plus a virtual welcome to the international family. They even described her as “classy”. So I guess they are more than excited to meet her in person once she competes in Poland.
Happy Philippine Independence Day, everyone!
Taking good care of her body can make it easier to recharge her mind.
This week, your #Binibini30 Resham Ramirez Saeed went to Boracay for a well-deserved holiday break to do just that.
In the meantime, watch her official Bb. Pilipinas 2019 introductory video and tell me what you think her chances are in the competition.

Get to know your #Binibini30 Resham Ramirez Saeed through her young life as an all-around sportsperson.
One of the more unique details about Rae is that – from the young age of 12 – she used to swim competitively. Not only that, she was a member of all sports teams: basketball, soccer and baseball. During Grade 11-12, she was even a member of the wrestling team. All sport commitments imbued in her the ability to work well with others, how to be a leader and – up to her adult years – how to be a genuine people’s person.
Rae works well under pressure. She has always forged her own path. Being the eldest and only daughter among three 3 brothers has led her to be very opinionated. She is quite vocal about what she strongly believes in. Creating influence and having a open heart is something she had to always practice for the sake of her siblings.
Will this Fil-Pakistani representative of Maguindanao be able to influence the alignment of her stars in Bb. Pilipinas 2019?
Binibini Watch List 2019:
Resham Ramirez Saeed
This 25 year-old Fil-Pakistani beauty is a real charmer in person. She fluidly articulates her thoughts with grace and sensibly answers any kind of question thrown at her.
Rae doesn’t hide the fact that she wants to become a #Binibini this year. And if she makes the cut, Maguinadanao is the province she will represent. She is a firm advocate of women empowerment and would actually campaign for ALEng Entrep in the upcoming national elections if given the chance.
A Psychology major back in Toronto where she reigned as Miss Philippines Canada back in 2017, she has been independently residing (and intensively training) in the country for almost a year now.
Watch her brief introductory video below.
