“I’m Thoreen D. Halvorsen, 24 years old and I am from the province of Palawan. I am half Norwegian and half Filipino. I was born and raised in a small island in Port Barton called San Vicente. It is a very beautiful place where you can find the longest beach in the country.
I joined Miss Philippines Earth back in 2012 and was crowned as Miss Philippines Fire. I wasn’t expecting to join a beauty pageant again after 5 years because I was just so busy with school, being a graduating student taking up Consular and Diplomatic affairs at De la Salle College of Saint Benilde. During my college days back in 2015, I was part of the National Model United Nations team for Europe and that experience trained me especially in public speaking.
Now I am so blessed to be part of Bb. Pilipinas and as a first timer, I am enjoying every moment of it and my co-Binibinis are equally amazing.”
Those are words coming straight from your Binibini 35 Thoreen Deniega Halvorsen. She may be 50% of Norwegian mix, but her outlook and upbringing are distinctly Filipino. Actually, you can only see small traces of Scandinavian roots in her overall features. Save for the name and surname, she is a true blue Palaweña.

Thoreen is a smart and outspoken lady who knows what she wants in life. She eventually dreams of becoming a Diplomat posted in an overseas assignment once she builds up her credentials as one. But for now, she is all about being a Binibini and hopefully getting one of the crowns which she can use as a platform to further her mid-term goals in life.
How is Binibini 35 figuring out in your assessment, dear readers? 🙂
