|Miss Grand International Philippines Kimberly Karlsson|
Now that Kimberly Anastacia Beltran Karlsson had set her foot in the Land of Smiles to (hopefully) conquer the Philippines' first Miss Grand International crown, there is definitely no holding back. It's noteworthy mentioning that her predecessor Ali Forbes almost snatched the crown last year when she placed as Third Runner-Up to the eventual winner Janelee Chaparro of Puerto Rico. The 19 year-old Filipino-Swedish equestrianne and model is dead-set to bend overbackwards to continue the Philippines' winning streak and bring home the top honors come finals' night, and if her lucky stars would align to her favor, it'll indubitably be a resounding grand victory.
Best of luck Kimberly!
