CATRIONA GRAY – Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray penned her sentiment after being hailed as the new NCCA ambassador for the arts.
Filipina-Australian beauty queen Catriona Gray is also a singer, tv host, and book author. She has done several achievements after winning the Miss Universe crown in 2018.
The 26-year-old celebrity now joins Vice Ganda, Karylle, and Vhong Navarro in hosting the Kapamilya noontime variety show It’s Showtime. In a previous article, she talked about her first day co-hosting the program.
During the press conference of the National Commission of Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Catriona Gray was introduced as this year’s new arts ambassador for the arts. Singers Julie Ann San Jose and KZ Tandingan were also hailed as the new ambassadors for music. The agency celebrates ‘National Arts Month.’
In a report, the beauty queen wowed the NCCA audience with her heartfelt speech. “My love for our arts and culture was not something that I was born to due to my mixed heritage. It was something that was grown, learned, and embodied,” she said.
Recently, Catriona Gray penned her sentiments after the event at the NCCA building in Intramuros, Manila. She shared her appreciation for the agency on her Instagram account.
“Such an honor to be recognized as the 2020 Ambassador for the Arts by the Philippine National Commission of Culture and Arts @nccaofficial 🇵🇭 Kuya @carlosbuendiajr, look! I believe artists always create with intention. And in my pursuit to conquer my universe and to achieve my dream I sought to take the opportunity to celebrate our national Philippine heritage, art, history, textiles, music and dance to bring forth a new found interest in Philippine Arts to the younger generation. It brings me great pride to continue sharing our unique, Filipino heritage in the arts to my universal platform as it has become my advocacy, aside from advocating for education and HIV/AIDS, to advocate for love of country.”
