For this blog entry, let us give the spotlight to your #Binibini7 Shanon Jumaylh S. Tampon of Caloocan – the lady with the most interesting surname that is consistent with her lively/energetic personality.
Shanon could not give the most definitive origins of the Tampons in the Philippines, except for a good cluster of her ancestors living in the northern part of Cebu (Bantayan/Madridejos). Other than that, she is clear about everything else – her pageant plans in particular. Having joined Miss Philippines Earth 2019 and Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 while finishing in the Top 10 of #Promedia’s Miss Bikini Philippines before Bb. Pilipinas 2020, she feels that past experiences have prepared her for the more rigorous demands of the competition she is presently a part of. She is braver and more confident. And even if she admits to the need of leveling up her communication skills even more, she pours her time and effort to diligently training in the aspect of Q&A and the like.
Advocacy-wise, Shanon chose to delve on the fight against animal cruelty – a cause closest to her heart. At its core, she has been taking care of and looking after stray dogs and cats on top of the ones living inside their house compound. Reason why she is excited about the regular affiliation of BPCI with PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) and the help it extends to the group.
This beauty is aware that competing against 39 other Binibinis can be daunting for a first-timer. In her own small way, she helps guide her newbie sisters on how to tackle the ins and outs of the national beauty pageant game. As for her 22 year-old self, she is determined to make a good impression up to the Grand Coronation Night. She is passionate about winning a crown that would give her the right to represent the country internationally. And she won’t stop until this mission is accomplished.
Below is your blogger’s exclusive interview with Shanon conducted yesterday.
