Just recently, Yvethe Santiago, Philippines' delegate for the 6th edition of Miss Supranational beauty pageant was formally given a send off party by her Binibining Pilipinas family at the Balay in Araneta Center.
Yvette who is aware of the pressure in clinching the top plum remains positive and determined."I know I'm facing the tough competition. A back-to-back victory is very hard but not impossible. My passion to bring home the crown will fire me up for the fight and I'm excited to see how it will empower me come pageant time."
When asked about her ultimate weapon to stand out in a sea of beautiful contenders, the statuesque Bicolana pointed out her fellow Binibini Mutya Datul who is the very first Filipino titleholder and the first Asian to win the Miss Supranational crown. "Every chance we're together, we talk about what I can do to shine in the pageant, and Johanna is very open to share everything. She always told me to just enjoy the moment, never get tired of smiling. Be lavish in your praises for the people in the pageant, but do it out with sincerity."
Yvette is scheduled to leave for Krynica-Zdrój in Poland on November 16th where she will be fighting tooth and nail together with the 80 plus beauties from around the globe for the Miss Supranational crown. Philippines' Mutya Johanna Datul will crown her successor on the pageant's grand finale.
God Bless you Yvette in your journey for the crown! You can make it!
