"I don't want to close myself with other opportunities."
These were the words of Samantha Bernardo when asked if she has plans to join other pageants in the future.
She remarked that she is open to joining if she is still "eligible" to participate.
"I'm still qualified and I'm still eligible for it, and I feel that it's still going to be worth it, why not?" she said during a virtual conference by Binibining Pilipinas as reported by ABS-CBN News.
The beauty queen stressed though that she does not want to make any promises.
"Sana kahit hindi ko matuloy itong pageant na ito, o kung hindi ako sasali, or sasali pa rin ako, sana you will still support me in other things that I can do," she said.
"I want to make sure that it will still align [with] my purpose and my passion. So let's see and let's hope for the best," she added.
Samantha was crowned 1st runner-up last March in the Miss Grand International 2020 in Thailand.
