Mrs. Philippines-Globe holds bigger and better search for 2013-A A +A
Friday, March 15, 2013
AFTER the success of its first-ever search last year, Mrs. Philippines-Globe is now back to celebrate Filipina women who possess that rare combination of beauty and substance.
One of the biggest international beauty pageants of its kind, Mrs. Philippines-Globe honors Filipina women of substance who play an important role in the society. It salutes women who do not let age and civil status get in the way of fulfilling their dreams, and whose achievements, charitable acts and life stories serve as inspiration to others.
On its second year, Mrs. Philippines-Globe is bound to become bigger and better as it opens its doors not only to married women but also to single mothers. This year, the pageant will also hold screenings in key cities and provinces in the country.
“We were deeply overwhelmed with the success of Mrs. Philippines-Globe last year. So this 2013, we made the pageant even bigger to reach out to more Filipinas and to let them know about the pageant’s advocacy, which is women empowerment. We also wish to encourage them to take this opportunity where they themselves can become an instrument of empowerment and source of inspiration to others,” said National Pageant Director Morena Carla Cabrera-Quimpo.
Out of all the applicants, pageant officials will choose 20 official candidates who will compete for the coveted crown during the national pageant night set on May 25, 2013 at New World Hotel.
More importantly, she will also have the rare opportunity to represent the Philippines in the Mrs. Globe 2013 World Finals at Shenzhen, China on September 2013.
“My journey during the Mrs. Philippines-Globe pageant was definitely one-of-a-kind. It allowed me to expand my horizons by helping me meet different kinds of people, bringing me to places I’ve never been before, and creating more opportunities for personal development. All in all, the pageant helped become a better person,” said Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2012 Joycelyn Agsaway, who also won Face of the Year Award in last year’s Mrs. Globe World Finals.
More than just a celebration of beauty, Mrs. Globe in the US is affiliated with The Women In Need Foundation, which aims to help abused women and children recover their self-esteem. The pageant emphasizes that women have the right to be heard, loved and respected.
