Catriona Gray Welcomes Newly Crowned Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo To The Sisterhood
CATRIONA GRAY – Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray congratulates Rabiya Mateo for bagging the Miss Universe Philippines crown.
During the Q&A portion, Rabiya Mateo was asked whose image of any Pinoy does she want to be on the new paper currency. She said, “If I were given the chance, I want to use the face of Miriam Defensor-Santiago. For those who don’t know, she was an Ilongga. But what I admired about her is that she used her knowledge, her voice to serve the country. I want to be somebody like her – somebody who puts her heart, her passion into action. After all, she is the best President that we never had.”
For her second question, the Ilongga beauty queen shared where she thinks do beauty pagents stand during the pandemic. Rabiya said, “As a candidate, I know I am not just a face of Iloilo City but I am here carrying hope and as a symbol of light in the darkest of times. As of the moment, I want to help my community. I want to use my strength to make an impact. And that is the essence of beauty pageant. It gives us the power to make a difference.”
Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray was quick to congratulate Rabiya Mateo. She also welcomed her to their sisterhood.
“Congratulations to our new queen Rabiya!!! Welcome to the sisterhood! Excited to witness your journey. Welcome to the sisterhood Queen,” she wrote.
