Pandemic or not, the show must go on. The search for the next Miss Universe Philippines candidate is still afront with more than 40 candidates vying for the crown. And one of the candidates is Cavite bet Kimberly “Billie” Hakenson.
In a Youtube clip that was uploaded on Monday, Hakenson introduced herself and even came out as a proud bisexual.
“I’m Billie Hakenson, I’m representing Cavite. I’m bisexual and I’m proud to be here,” she said in a closed-door interview with the candidates.
To add, Hakenson uploaded a photo of herself in a cute black dress on October 17. Accompanying said photo is the caption, “I know who I am, I know what I can do. I will tell my story as truly as I can and I will enjoy every bit of this journey as I build myself.”
