After her two-year reign as Bb. Pilipinas Universe, Gazini Ganados crowned her successor at the Binibining Pilipinas pageant last July 11. The 24-year-old Fil-Palestinian beauty queen, who originally hails from Zamboanga del Norte, took to Instagram last July 14 to share her sentiments about the recently concluded event which was hosted by fellow beauty queens Catriona Gray and Nicole Cordoves.
On her Instagram account, she wrote, “You may have missed my farewell walk and speech due to technical issues. I’d like to acknowledge the people who supported and helped me relentlessly. So I’m leaving this here.
“Our journey has finally come full circle. My life changed forever. I was blessed not only with seven beautiful queen sisters, but also a Family. Thank you to all my supporters, Mrs. Araneta, Kf Cebu&MNL, Origin Model Management, Edward James Castro, Toledomed & BPCI family & specially to my angels Jonas Borces & Cary Santiago.
“Tonight is a celebration of gratitude.
“Binibinis, congratulations for taking this leap of faith. In all that you do, do it with all your heart.
“A binibini has the voice to inspire others, a compassionate heart to act, a determination to carry on….. that, is Beyond Beautiful.
“Gihigugma ko kamong tanan. Daghang Salamat!
“This is Gazini Ganados your last Binibining Pilipinas Universe.”
In a succeeding post, Gazini formally closed her Binibining Pilipinas journey with a silhouette photo of herself taken backstage after the pageant with the caption, “Closing this chapter with a grateful heart! Thankyou @bbpilipinasofficial .”
