“Scattered across more than 7,000 islands, the Philippines is home to a diverse wildlife, postcard worthy views, and more than a hundred million smiles. It’s also the place that I am proud to call home,” she said.

Catriona also showed bits and pieces of her life, including her parents, whom she called her best friends.

After sharing about her passion for music and saying that she graduated from Berklee College of Music, Catriona said she had to do a lot of soul-searching to figure out what she wanted to do.

“Kahit ilang dagat ang dapat tawirin – no matter the obstacles and challenges I must overcome to make a difference for the better – higit pa riyan ang aking gagawin – more than that, I will do. For the Philippines, for the world,” Catriona finished.

Catriona was crowned Miss World Philippines 2016 by Hillarie Parungao in October. She will compete in the international pageant on December 18 in the US. – Rappler.com
