After her spotlight moment on Episode 1 of the #ringlightseries of Miss Universe Philippines 2020, here is Sandra Lemonon of Taguig in her latest uploaded photo as captured by Dookie Ducay.
“This is perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take – to be seen as we really are” -Cinderella.
In the start of this year I said
“I am ready to show the universe, that what ever hurdles life throws at me I will use them as a lesson and turn them into my superpower”
Life for sure took me up for that challenge 😅 but it gave me one of the best gifts it can ever ask for.
My inner voice❤️
My journey to self love has been a bumpy road with many pitfalls.
To hating myself, thinking I was Dirty, unworthy, a mistake & broken.
To understanding that I needed to go thru all of those feelings & situations to know how it feels like… & how to climb out of that dark hole. For one day I will be ready to accept myself for who I am & everything that made me, “the good” & “the bad.”
I had to learn how to deprogram old perceptions of how I should think, behave and feel to be accepted by society …
I am still making my way to my destination & some days are harder than others but it is for sure one of the most fulfilling feelings I have ever felt ❤️
I’ve learn to TRUST myself.
To FORGIVE myself, to give GRACE in moments where I felt I could’ve done or do better.
To EMBRACE dark moments & know that it DOESNT define me, what defines me is how I CHOOSE to react to it 🥺❤️ & most importantly is that I get to be my MOST AUTHENTIC SELF 🥰
With all of these lessons I believe I have found my purpose…
That being my true self (no filter, flaws & all) I can show others how to learn to love themselves too 🥺
Thank you to the amazing team behind this picture who shared with me their time,talent & expertise in helping me be one step closer to reaching one of my biggest dreams, I love you all so much.
I feel and look beautiful.
Before the day ends, I want to give a #Shoutout to another beautiful and #phenomenalwoman who is celebrating her special day today:
#HappyBirthday, Sandra Lemonon❣️
Keep focused on your Miss Universe Philippines 2020 journey. Stay sweet and caring as you have always been. 😘

Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidate Sandra Lemonon of Taguig for Cream Silk Philippines:
If you know me you know how much I value self care, whether it be taking good care of my mind, body or even my hair.
I’ve been growing out my hair for the past year & I was on the hunt for a good hair conditioner with natural ingredients that will nourish, clean & keep my hair healthy while smelling fresh.
That is why I am so excited to announce that Creamsilk is launching their all NEW Cream Silk Rich Organic Powerfusion Ultra Conditioner. It combines Cream Silk’s advanced potency with luxurious natural oils and rich organic balms for luscious moisturized hair that blooms with life.
I’ve been using it for over a week & I am in love with how it makes my hair feel, it is something I look forward to especially after a long day & it’s an important step in my “me time”. 🥳🥰

Here is Batch 3 of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Candidates and their Passions that never fade for Downy Philippines.
They encapsulate in ten seconds what I have been individually blogging about them for the past two months.

So who is just as happy as Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach using their #HuaweiP40PH smartphones? These Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates certainly are!
With its 50MP Ultra Vision, 12MP Telephoto, 3D Depth Sensing and 40MP Ultra Wide Cine Cameras, they can take pictures almost like pros. The Quad-Curve Overflow Display makes the unit feel like a flowing wonder in their hands.
What’s more, you can get a free Band 4 with each purchase.
Huawei Philippines is a proud sponsor of Miss Universe Philippines.
A rallying point is a place, event, or person that people are attracted to as a symbol of an ideal. She could serve as a rallying point for unity and independence.
Or in the case of the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 candidates, they will serve as the rallying points for hope and the personifications of positivity and resilience amidst any kind of crisis.
Here are more of them now.
