  2. I am also an Ilonggo as I grew up in Roxas City, Capiz. When I heard about Rabiya Mateo winning the Miss Universe Philippines and finding that she was from Iloilo, I was so excited that an Ilonggo is going to represent the Philippines in The MISS UNIVERSE contest. I am here in Medinah, Illinois USA, for the last 41 years now and I have been following up all the Pilipino contestants in this event from PIA to Catriona and now Rabiya. I will not miss to watch the contest this May 16, 2021. GOOD LUCK RABIYA! “May The Force Be With You”.
