This once in a lifetime experience 26 years ago ??paved the way for me to be a beauty queen and gave me the opportunities I am enjoying today. ? Tonight, 40 candidates vie for the MISS WORLD PHILIPPINES 2018 crown. Goodluck, ladies! May the best queen win! ❤️? #MWP2018 #HOST #Beautyqueen #polaroid #throwback
