Above is an update from National Director Arnold Vegafria regarding the status of Miss Eco International 1st Runner-Up Kelley Day.
She was finally able to get a flight from Egypt back to Manila via Abu Dhabi. She will arrive on April 26.
Let us continue to pray for her safety until she sets foot in the country.
The stories surrounding the COVID-related happenings during the last few days of the recently-concluded Miss Eco International 2020 in Egypt has taken different shapes and sizes. From this blog, I am just praying for the health and safety of our Miss Eco Philippines Kelley Day.
Based from the posts of Dr Amaal Rezk in her FB account, it does appear that she is infected with a disease. So I do not want to make any further speculations than that.
Below is the Official Statement of Arnold Vegafria:
“The ALV Group of Companies is coordinating closely with the Miss Eco International organization in ensuring the health and safety of all the candidates in its recently concluded pageant.
Our official candidate, Ms. Kelley Day, remains our topmost priority, and we remain optimistic as we await the results of the organizers’ routinary medical testing procedures.”
The Last Two Women Standing
Two (2) very promising starts for the Philippines in international pageantry this 2021.
First it was Samantha Bernardo who got First Runner-Up honors last March 27 during the Finals of Miss Grand International 2020 in Bangkok, Thailand.
And just last night in Sharm El Shiekh, Egypt, Kelley Day was so close to winning the country’s 2nd Miss Eco International title when she was named First Runner-Up to Gizzelle Mandy Uys of South Africa.
Next month in Hollywood, Florida, the 69th Miss Universe will have a new Queen. Will the ascent continue one notch higher to the top for Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo? Will it stay the same as the above? Or will the Philippines finally get that elusive 2nd Runner-Up placement?
Congratulations to the winners!
Miss Eco International 2020 is Gizzelle Uys of South Africa, with our very own Kelley Day coming in close as 1st Runner-Up.
The rest of the court includes 2nd Runner-Up Alexandria Kelly of the USA, 3rd Runner-Up Sttefania Rodriguez of Venezuela and 4th Runner-Up Kristelle Ruiz of Costa Rica.
Barring any more unforeseen delays or longer travel ban restrictions, it looks like it’ll be green-and-go for Miss Eco Philippines 2019 Kelley Day with her pageant mission.
Miss Eco International 2020 is confirmed to be held from 25th of August to 12th of September 2020 in Egypt. Let’s continue spreading awareness for our Mother Earth.
Fingers crossed for this. I don’t want to be a party pooper but August/September is just too soon for an assembly of international delegates amidst the pandemic crisis.
