Before Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann leaves for Sanya, China this coming Friday, she took the opportunity to speak her heart out during the send-off yesterday afternoon at Annabel’s Restaurant. She started off plain and heartfelt in her message then slowly segued to the heart of her piece which is about the constant bashing and criticisms being continuously thrown against the Miss World Organization and the competition itself. She started to rally members of the media to stop all the negativity and look forward to more productive comment and feedbacks that she can bring with her in the journey.
Watch the entire video clip now.
Happening this afternoon at Annabel’s in Quezon City is the strictly-by-invitation 2-in-1 Send-Off for Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann and Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2017 Teresita Ssen “Win-Wyn” Marquez. Pageant media has been anticipating this event for more than a week now since the latter of the two will be departing for Bolivia in just a couple of winks from now. With everything all set, it will just be a matter of time before we formally start blogging about their actual activities in competition.
Any questions that you would like asked during the Open Mic segment of the program, dear readers? 🙂

When Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann guested on ANC’s Headstart with host Karen Davila, she spoke at length about what drives her, advocacy-wise. Actually, we already know that her focus is on education or PREP (Promoting Rural Education in the Philippines). Watch the video below as she gives us clearer insights on her Beauty With A Purpose (BWAP) Project, while answering other interesting questions along the way.
By the way, mentor Jonas Gaffud accompanied her in the said guesting.

Breaking Update from Laura Lehmann herself:
“Hi Tito! Saw your article about my BWAP. 🙂 Thanks for featuring me. 🙂 After discussing with the MWP Organization, we are opting to showcase and support the Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center since this is the official partner of Miss World Philippines. Because of this, that project might be my BWAP for Miss World instead, bearing in mind the urgency and level of need that the hospital requires, since it really needs our help at the moment. 🙂 Just wanted to clarify in case anyone got confused. ❤️
These are heavy days for Jonas Gaffud and the four (4) beauty queens he is almost simultaneously polishing and preparing for their respective international pageants that will take place in just one month’s time.
First to do battle is Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2017 Teresita Ssen “Wyn” Marquez who will go to La Paz, Bolivia for her mission which has a November 4 finals date.
Next in line is Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon who will put her game plan into motion the minute she sets foot in Tokyo, Japan for Miss International 2017 happening on November 14.
Third to compete (and overlapping with Miss International due to its longer pre-pageant period) is Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann traveling to Sanya where she will disprove the thoughts of many that there is always a slim chance for a Filipina winning once the host city is in Mainland China. Miss World 2017 will be elected on November 18.
And last but certainly not the least is Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2017 Chanel Olive Thomas and her trip to Krynica Zdrój, Nowy Sącz, Poland for Miss Supranational 2017 with a December 1 finals playdate.
This is certainly not an enviable task for the beauty queen-maker. But Jonas is taking everything with a smile on his face. This is what he does best. And he will make sure that all four ladies will be in tiptop shape for their respective assignments.
The title of this entry is the answer Laura Lehmann gave to the final question I asked of her during our brief video interview during the Miss World Philippines 2017 Press Presentation last Monday at New World Makati Hotel.
I asked her to choose between Sanya, China and Bolivia as obvious references to the host countries of Miss World 2017 and Reina Hispanoamericana 2017. Of course, she knows what title she is clearly gunning for and that is the #1 spot itself.
Hear her now talk about how she missed the pageant scene, as well as the “P.R.E.P.” advocacy that she wants to further expand should the platform be served on her plate come September 3 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
