We’re more than halfway there with the Official Candidates of Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018 with the 11th pair in our midst. Here we have the recent debutante from Palawan and the hottie of a Civil Engineering graduate from Dagupan City.
Meet James Lee Sabado #HugotKing and Shara Maxine Barber #SharaPrincesa.
So why is James hashtagged #HugotKing? Read on so you will know more about this heavy duty muscleman of a hunk from Dagupan City.
Our subject’s name is coined from his parents’ names – Jaime and Lea. He is all of 22 years and has successfully finished his Civil Engineering degree from the Lyceum North-Western University. A varsity basketball player inside the campus, he is not the usual hard court hottie who would incessantly take advantage of being swooned over by girls in every game. Instead, he would spend his free time working out and shaping up because this is his best stress-reliever. This keeps him away from vices that would only affect his health.
“I’m a health-conscious person not because I am picky with the food I eat, but because I believe that having a healthy body will make my daily living more sound and full of energy. People would be surprised. to know that I am actually a shy person. But when it comes to achieving my dreams and goals in life, I can say that I’m one tough fighter. I dream to be a successful model/actor but more realistically, my greatest dream in life is to become a successful Licensed Civil Engineer one day. I want to be the Head Engineer when Malacanang Palace undergoes major renovations in the future and to build my own mansion where my whole family can live in. My family is my greatest inspiration in life.”
So where does being a #HugotKing come from?
“I am a self proclaimed #HugotKing because of all the ups and downs in life, specially in matters of the heart. If i will describe my lovelife in two words – It sucks! I must be a magnet for heartbreaks. But then again, I always think that my Miss Right is still out there. Patience is a virtue, after all.”
James feels that 2018 is his year, and hopefully that will translate to a win in Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018.
Shara is a big girl now. She’s 18 and ready to explore the world beyond Puerto Princesa City. And boy, is she game to face the competition for Mr & Ms Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018.
“The ocean is my friend, and I consider myself as a thalassophile. I am a certified beach lover. With Palawan as my native land, I am happy to be representing the best and friendliest island in the world. It is home of impressive rock and limestone formations, with classic and alluring spots which can really make you fall in love and return again and again.“
How were you as a child?
“During my childhood days, I love playing under the sun, running on the seashore, swimming in the beach with my siblings and cousins until our skin got tanned. My family loves travelling during holidays. Beaches are our foremost destination. Waves, sand architectures, breathing the fresh air are some of our activities. These
taught me to value nature at its best and embrace the vital role of environment for our living.”
And how are you now as #SharaPrincesa?
“Nowadays, I love to play beach volleyball and surfing. I enjoy sunbathing and island hopping. Also, as a dance enthusiast, I love portraying the role of a festival queen in the local street dance competitions. I also lead our dance organization in welcoming local and foreign tourists arriving in the airport through our native dances which feature the rich and cultural heritage of our province.”
How are you looking at your first pageant in the national level?
“l truly believe that joining Miss Hannah’s is one of the best avenues for me to touch other people’s hearts; to share the message of conserving, maintaining and protecting the wonders of nature. That is why I want to win and show the best of both Pagudpud and Palawan!”
