Actress and beauty queen Teresita Ssen “Wynwyn” Marquez has had enough of getting told that she’s “too short” to belong in the pageant world.
Teresita Ssen “Wynwyn” Marquez has had enough of constantly being reminded that she doesn’t deserve a spot in the pageant world due to her stature.
In a tweet last Thursday, the 26-year-old star expressed her vexation towards her bashers who keep on insisting that she’s "too short" for a beauty queen.
“Laki [pa rin] ng problema ng iba sa height ko. Hindi ba kayo maka-move on? 2019 na. Ako lang ba yung 5’6” na sumali sa pageant world? ‘Yung totoo,” she said.
After making her foray in showbiz, Teresita decided to try her luck in pageantry by joining Binibining Pilipinas in 2015, wherein she finished in the Top 15, along with snagging three special awards, namely Best National Costume, Miss Talent and the "She's so JAG" Award.
In 2017, Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno’s daughter was officially part of the Miss World Philippines, which earned her the privilege to represent the country in Reina Hispanoamericana – a prestigious beauty pageant celebrating the Hispanic culture and history – in the same year, among all others. This proved out to be a success after Teresita eventually took home the title in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, besting over 20 contestants from around the world.
In November, mere days after her reign has ended, the beauty queen has admitted to eyeing more pageants to join this year, particularly the Miss Universe and Miss Supranational.
