Valerie Weigmann says she's bringing a lucky charm to the Miss World pageant


111914-valerie_main.jpgAalis na sa November 20 papuntang London ang pambato ng Pilipinas sa Miss World Beauty pageant na si Valerie Weigmann. Pero bago ang kanyang departure para sa pageant, isang traditional send off party ang naganap para kay Valerie kasama ang entertainment media sa isang restaurant sa BGC. 

Aminado si Valerie na kabado siya ngayon pero mas excited sa journey na kanyang tatahakin.

Right now I’m happy and excited that’s really how I feel right now my first time to join a pageant, so I’m thrilled to see London as well, my first time sa UK so excited yun lang.”

Proud din na sinabi ni Valerie na ang Middle East based Pinoy fashion designer na si Michael Cinco ang gumawa ng gown na isusuot ni Valerie sa competition.

“Michael Cinco, he already said, sa Facebook he already posted already. I’m just happy when I heard that it’s Michael. I also messaged him and he answered, 'Val this is for you God bless and bring home the crown.' That’s all he said to me and I’m just happy about everything.”

Hindi rin naman daw nagkukulang sa pagbibigay ng tips ang reigning Miss World na si Megan Young na malaking tulong kay Valerie ngayon.

One of the things that she told me be yourself and be excited with everything that will be happening in London and in the whole journey of Miss World. Ako naman kung wala pressure wala excitement that’s how I see it. The right mind set I guess is just to be excited rather than to be nervous about it. Excited and enjoy the whole experience. Ako I’m pretty relaxed right now.”

At para mabasawan ang tension, may lucky charm din na bitbit si Valerie na bigay pa ng nanay niya.

“May rosary ako galling sa mommy ko so I always bring it with me, so iyon siguro ang lucky charm ko and of course my supporters, just the fact that I am representing the Philippines syempre yung mga fellow countrymen natin.”

Kaya naman sa laban ni Valerie sa Miss World pageant sa December 14, nagre-request ang beauty queen na sana isama natin siya sa prayers natin at suporta sa social media.

I’m just touched kasi hindi ko talaga akalain na ganun kalakas at support ng Pilipinas sa pageants, nag follow na talaga sila parang ako oh my gosh I'm excited to see everyone in London, all the OFW’s based in UK and also the other supporters who will be flying in from different countries, I’m excited to see everyone. Sana nandyan pa rin ang suporta sa December 14 kasi nandoon ako sa London for the coronation of Miss World, so thank you talaga sa lahat ng suporta sa journey, not only as Miss World Philippines also sa Miss World Pageant at thank you rin sa tiwala nyo.”
