After failing to take home the crown in spite of winning most of the special awards in the Binibining Pilipinas pageant last weekend, Vickie Rushton took to Instagram last June 10 to share her thoughts on her whole experience. The pageant contestant got flack after admitting she got distracted during her turn in the Q and A portion of the pageant.
Life is the biggest classroom and experience is the greatest teacher. My experiences in the recently concluded Bb. Pilipinas pageant has taught me a lot of lessons - lessons which will guide me as I continue to embark in my life’s journey. These experiences will help me find more options to reach my life goal.
To all those who supported me, prayed for me, joined me in my journey, thank you is not enough to express my gratitude for your unconditional support and love.
I treasure the moments I shared with my fellow Binibinis who, like me, shared a common dream of getting a crown. In them, I found a family. We worked together, laughed together, and at times cried together. I am sincerely happy to the crown holders and commiserate with those who did not.
I have a lot to thank - the BPCI for the opportunity to compete again and to our mentors for guiding us.
To all those who believed in me despite my imperfections and to my detractors, thank you so much. Your comments and reactions were noted. I can use some of them to perfect my imperfect self. Thank you also to those who continue to defend me. Let us put to rest the issue and we can move on from here. We can be friends even if we had differences. Let’s consider how to uplift one another, support, encourage and pray for each other.
“In a world full of hate, be love.”
Be kind. ♥️”
Before joining Bb Pilipinas, Rushton entered ABS-CBN via the reality show Pinoy Big Brother where she finished in fourth place in 2014.
