The pressure among candidates and fans of the Miss Universe Philippines 2021 pageant is starting to build up as the coronation night draws near.
Each of the candidates’ camp is never amiss in updating the public, supporters, and fans of the latest “pasabog” (a famous Filipino term for something magnanimous/explosive) to better present why their candidates deserve the crown.
While others release everything ‘pageantry,” here’s an alternative update about this year’s Miss Siargao Island bet.
The mother of Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Siargao Island candidate Michele Angela Navarro Okol shared “one positive side” during this pandemic about her daughter’s consistent strength and determination, not just in the MUPh activities but also in her studies.
Maria Helena Navarro Okol posted on her Facebook account last week how her daughter not only becomes more responsible but also maintains her First Honor Category, with a 96-97 general average as she majors in Political Science at De La Salle University (DLSU) Manila.
“What more can a parent ask for?” muses Okol as she shares how Angela (how she calls her and people close to her) maintains her promise to not leave school and continue as long as she can, even with the challenges and requirements of the MUPh pageant.
Angela, indeed, kept her promise to her parents to maintain that high grades in her aspiration to become a lawyer someday and help out. This young commercial model cum student achiever who initially fit the “girl-next-door” type has now transformed into a complete phenomenal woman ready to conquer the universe. The intent to help has been there when one completely shy girl, entered “public life” as a commercial model “in an attempt to help out and generate more income,” Okol further shared.
She continues by saying that Angela also sewed clothes and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to earn more income from 2020-2021 and even approached a popular beauty queen who was so kind to buy from her 1 or 2 PPE jackets even if she does not know who Angela was.
“For that I would like to thank Ms Ruffa (Gutierrez) who (is) an added inspiration for her to join in this journey,” adds Okol.
A respectful daughter, a good friend, a trust-worthy confidante. For this, she tells her daughter to “carry on my child. God is with you.”
Fans and supporters of this pageant-newbie candidate are supporting Angela for that inherent “it” (a complete package: beauty, brains, and a passion to make a difference to this world).
