In an interview with Rappler during her send off last November, Kris said that her pageant experience is dedicated to her father, who died before he could see her compete in a pageant.
“If my dad were here I still think it would be the same. I am doing this in memory of my dad, whether he is here or not for him and my family. I guess if my dad would be here, I would have more words of wisdom from him but I am very very grateful that my dad is my dad because he left me a lot of tips and advice on life,” she said. –Rappler.com
