Janine Tugonon: 'No matter what language...as long as you have the heart'
MANILA, Philippines - Janine Tugonon was asked this question by pageant judge Nigel Barker: "As an international ambassador, do you think that speaking English should be a prerequisite for Miss Universe? Why or why not?"
Here's Tugonon's answer: "For me Miss Universe is not about being able to speak a particular language, it's about being able to influence and inspire other people. No matter what language you have as long as you have the heart you can inspire other people."
