“The road to the crown will not be easy. Following in the footsteps of our former queens will not be an easy feat as well. But taking my chances to win the crown takes courage, tenacity, love for my country, and the willingness to do good with this platform is what I believe will become my greatest advantage in the Miss Universe Philippines stage,” she said in the video.
