Print ad model vies for Miss Teen International crown in Vietnam

Sixteen-year-old Jihaynne Jirah Shamah “Hayni’ Hernandez, a native of Calamba, Laguna, will be representing the Philippines in the Miss Teen International 2021 pageant to be held in Ho Chi Mihn City, Viet Nam, on Oct. 30.

The 5-foot-5 teen model is a Senior High (Grade 11) student, under the Accountancy, Business, and Management (ABM) strand at San Beda Alabang. She is a recipient of her school’s St. Maur Award for outstanding student.

Hernandez, who loves playing the piano, violin, and ukulele, has her own ‘Hayni Studio.’ An aspiring print ad model, she started modeling at the age of 9. She had graced the covers of teen fashion magazines including Fashion Flair, United Kingdom (April, May, and June 2021), and Mystic Sphere (August 2021).

Hernandez has also acted on the small screen having starred in ABS-CBN’s docudrama SOCO (Scene of the Crime Operative) 14th Anniversary Special.

Hernandez said that having experienced bullying and discrimination at a young age because of her skin, she instead took this as her motivation to succeed and achieve her dream to become a beauty queen.

“Being a beauty queen is a blessing and also a responsibility to make a difference in other people’s lives,” Hernandez said. She advocates reaching out to the most neglected and most disadvantaged communities in her province and helping to uplift the lives of the underprivileged and less fortunate people.

Hernandez will undergo training under the Kagandahang Flores Camp of Rodgil Flores in preparation for the Miss Teen International pageant. She is thankful to Rikki Molina, National Director of the Miss Teen Philippines franchise and her fellow Calambeños led by Calamba Mayor Justin Chipeco for their valuable support to her forthcoming international competition.

Escalante has partnered with the mayor in undertaking several charitable socio-civic projects for the city’s constituents and in promoting Manila as a first-rate tourist destination.

Escalante, an advocate of human development, has partnered with the City Mayor to support various undertakings in line with his many socio-civic concerns and passions, among others, the home-for-the-homeless projects and re-energizing Manila’s rich historical, cultural and patrimonial heritage to return Manila to its old glory.

Escalante heads the League of Empowered Women (LEW) and is the vice-president of Wanita Filipina, organizations that help uplift the social and economic conditions of marginalized women in the country.  

Escalante, who co-hosts a lifestyle and entertainment show at TV31- ATC International, also aspires to become an actress. She has attended acting workshops with ABS-CBN and the Balintataw Film and Theater Arts and will be introduced in an upcoming biopic film on Macario Sakay, possibly with Robin Padilla, which she will be co-producing.

A part-time model, Escalante won Best in Modern Filipiniana at the recent World-Class Excellence Awards. “I joined the Mrs. Universe Philippines 2021 pageant to have a bigger platform to further pursue my advocacy. I want to become the voice of every woman, to be a good example and a role model largely engaged in helping uplift the deplorable conditions in society,” Escalante said.
