Kimberly Anastasia Karlsson was Miss Grand Philippines 2014. And by the looks of it, she could possibly be the one and only holder of that exact title. Pinay Beauty Queen Academy – in collaboration with franchise holder John dela Vega – has already taken over the reins of holding the reality TV search for the country’s next representative to Miss Grand International 2015 who will be henceforth named Pinay Beauty Queen Grand International 2015.
While her stint during last year’s edition in Bangkok was not as eventful as she would have wanted it to be, Kimberly is still happy that she wore the Philippine sash with pride and gave it her best during the finals.
For now, she has moved on literally. Last April, she initially went to San Francisco just for a vacation. But plans have started to change, and she is already looking at studying there after all her papers are processed in order.
Here’s the latest update on Kimberly. In her own words.
“Well right now, i’m just here on a 3-month vacation visiting my boyfriend (that’s how long i can stay here with my swedish passport with no visa) i’ve taken the TOEFL test already and sent in my college application during my time here 🙂 i’m going back to Sweden on june 8th to get my student visa and my ticket back here to SF is july 17 🙂
Honestly i don’t really know where i want to settle down yet so i’m gonna try to live in as many places as possible, i probably won’t stay here after i finished college, i’ll just move along to the next place like a nomad haha…
Anyway, I’ll be going to City College of San Francisco this fall and then after 2 years I’ll transfer to a University somewhere else in the US 🙂 My goal is going to one of the Ivy’s. After that I don’t know where I’ll go.. Maybe London😂 and i might take a year off from my studies after I graduated from CCSF/before i transfer to a university, and come back to the philippines 🙂 People have been asking me to join binibini or miss world so maybe i’ll do that when i come back 🙂
Go ahead with your study plans, Kimberly. You still have time in your hands to seriously think about making a second dip in beauty pageants. Enjoy the remaining days of your vacation! 😀
