Tracy Maureen Perez took to social media to look back on her journey in the Miss World 2021 pageant.
On her Instagram page, the beauty queen said, "My @missworld journey has officially come to an end now that I’ve left the beautiful island of Puerto Rico!"
The beauty queen remarked that she is looking forward to visiting the island once again someday.
"Spent the week there only with the best people and the best experiences, I can’t wait to be back and once again explore the wonders of the island of enchantment," she stated.
Tracy described her journey in Miss World as "life-changing."
"Oh and what a ride it has been! Truly eye-opening and life-changing. My heart swells with so much pride, love, and honor that a simple person like me was able to walk the stage of the world and leave a mark that will forever remain," she said.
In her message for the Philippines, Tracy said that there are still so many things to look forward to in the future.
"To my beloved Philippines, Mahal kong Pilipinas — this is just the beginning of an exciting and meaningful journey ahead! We are now seen, we are now heard, and we are never forgotten. Now I know in my heart that this is truly where I belong, para kay Nanay at para sa Pilipinas, I will always be of service," she said.
Tracy concluded her Miss World 2021 journey after making it to the top 13 in the pageant.
Only the top 40 candidates of Miss World returned to Puerto Rico this year for the coronation night following the postponement of the pageant in December 2021 after some candidates and staff tested positive for COVID.
Tracy was among the candidates who made it to the top 40 after she became one of the winners of the Beauty With a Purpose and Head-to-Head challenges.
The Cebuana beauty queen returned to Puerto Rico last March 13.
