Rabiya Mateo featured her mother and grandmother in her recent post
Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo dedicated her recent Instagram post to her mom and lola after she won the crown.
Rabiya brings pride to Iloilo City as she is now the titleholder of the most prestigious beauty pageant in the Philippines and soon she will represent the country in the most prestigious pageant in the world.
Despite a strong show of support from her fans, supporters, and those who believe that she deserves the crown, still, there were those who are questioning if she is really fit to be called “queen”.
The first-ever Miss Universe Philippines pageant went controversial, as Miss Taguig Sandra Lemonon believes that Miss Iloilo Rabiya Mateo does not have the credibility to win.
Behind the bashing and criticism, the Ilongga beauty queen stood firm that she did her best during the competition that is why she was hailed as the winner.
Rabiya also dedicates her success to the two important women in her life, her mother and her grandmother. “We made it, Mama and Lola! These two are the strongest women that I know,” she said in her post.
The newly-crowned Miss Universe Philippines also shared that both her mama and her lola were single mothers. However, they were able to raise children who are “full of dreams and aspiration in life.”
“To my Lola Sol in heaven, your favorite apo is now Miss Universe Philippines. I love you so so so much. I wish you were still here witnessing our victory,” Rabiya Mateo said.
The comment section of this post of the new queen was filled with message of support and admiration for her.
