Earlier this evening at Limbaga 77 Restaurant, an official send-off was hosted by Miss United Continents Philippines Organization for our appointed Miss United Continents Philippines 2022 Joanna Camelle Mercado who will depart on July 19 for Guayaquil, Ecuador where she will represent the country in this year’s edition of Miss United Continents.
Camelle – who stands at 5’9” – is no pageant newbie even if Miss World Philippines 2019 was the only notable turn among her beauty contest participations. In fact, she started joining at the age of 16 with school and provincial competitions. And now in her biggest challenge to date, she is ready to face the battle. Her Spanish language facility may still be short of conversational levels, but her charming and friendly ways should make up for any part that gets lost in translation.
Hopes are high that this 26 year-old Kapampangan will do well in the international competition and hopefully bring back the crown last won in 2016 by National Director Jeslyn Santos herself.
Below are more photos from the send-off.
