Yesterday afternoon at the Expo Hall of Fisher Mall in Quezon City, Miss Republic of the Philippines 2017 had its media launch to signal the opening of yet another beauty pageant that was revived last 2015 by Lynette Padolina. With a new Chair in the person of Dr. Romulo Aromin Jr., the 2017 edition of the scholarship-based competition will aim for a fresher and more dynamic search for Filipinas who have beauty, intelligence and the speaking skills to match the demands of promoting local tourism nationwide and in the Filipino Communities abroad. Present during the launch are reigning titleholders Miss Republic of the Philippines 2015 Fermira Dianne Ramos and Miss Republic of the Philippines International 2015 Beatrice Valente, along with Miss Luzon Joselle Mariano, Miss Visayas Sheila Marie Reyes and Miss Mindanao Istie Cequeña. “We have decided to launch our pageant search for 2017 for us to have ample time in searching for potential delegates all throughout the country and several Filipino Communities abroad. We want to equal if not surpass the quality of pageant delegates that we have last year when we revived the Miss Republic of the Philippines, one of the pioneer and prestigious beauty and personality search in the country.” says Dr. Aromin during the media interview. “We do hope that our valued pageant sponsors and benefactors, loyal friends, regional partners and you, members of the media will continue to support Miss RP just like what you’ve done in 2016. It would be another exciting and fruitful partnership come 2017. he further adds. The winners of Miss Republic of the Philippines will be actively involved in various socio-civic undertakings and community projects with the different government agencies and private institution partners of the pageant. These ladies should represent and embody the image of a Modern Filipina who is intelligent, self-assured and empowered.
