Here Are The Winning Answers Of 4 Bb. Pilipinas 2021 Queens
BB PILIPINAS 2021 – Here’s how the four (4) new queens answered the nerve-wracking questions at the Binibining Pilipinas 2021 pageant.
Most pageant girls would say that the hardest part of any competition is the question-and-answer segment. It could be held on a private one-on-one interview or on-stage Q&A, this is oftentimes where the crown is lost or won.
On Sunday, July 11, the top 13 semi-finalists of the Binibining Pilipinas 2021 shared their thoughts on relevant topics such as womanhood, COVID-19 pandemic, freedom of speech, and gender equality during the pageant’s Q&A segment at the Araneta Coliseum.
Masbate’s Hannah Arnold was crowned Bb. Pilipinas International 2021 last night. She and 3 other beauty queens were hailed as titleholders during the coronation night.
Three other queens are Bb. Pilipinas Globe Maureen Montagne, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental Cinderella Faye Obenita, and Bb. Pilipinas Grand International Samantha Panlilio.
Here are their winning answers:
Hannah Arnold, Masbate
Pinky Webb: Given the reach and power of social media, do you believe that genuine freedom of speech exists in the Philippines nowadays. Why or why not?
“First of all, freedom of speech is a basic human right that we all must remember. And it is important for democracy. And with the upcoming election, we definitely need free speech. For example, on Twitter, we are limited to few characters, and what I have seen from these tweets has been powerful and has helped me think about who I would like to vote for in the upcoming election.”
Samantha Panlilio, Cavite
Rajo Laurel: YOLO: You only live once. Name something you learned and did for the first time during the pandemic which you consider as the most life-changing of all.
“The one thing that I did during the pandemic was actually cook food for frontliners because I love to cook and I also have a food vlog which I do at my spare time, and it was such a fulfilling and humbling experience, you know—helping these people and helping contribute to the people who are actually in the frontlines helping us Filipinos. And so, I hope that what I did inspire other women too to help out one another because the only way that we can survive and heal and recover through this pandemic is that we help one another.”
Cinderella Faye Obenita (Cagayan de Oro – Misamis Oriental)
Michael Cinco: How important are luxury items like bags, clothes, and jewelry for a woman when the national economy is down and struggling?
“In life, we always find ourselves at a crossroad of choices. Women always have a choice whether to prioritize luxury items while we are facing a pandemic and also, we have a choice to embrace a concept of a new beautiful which is responsive to the needs of time, adaptive to the change of times. And I think I will choose to be that woman who understand the problems of the Philippines, the problems of my community so that we will be able to uplift each other and I will be that kind of woman who will comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.“
Maureen Montagne, Batangas
Sec. Benito Bendon Jr.: Now that compassion is needed more than ever, what is your most recent act of kindness and how did this affect others?
“During the pandemic, I was in Siargao. Ttogether, friends and I created together and we created a Siargao community kitchen. It was a trying time and everyone felt how hard it was. Our hearts were heavy but together. we rose. Together, we supported our communities and provided our hot meals and assistance to everyone on the island, and helped as much as we could, and for me, it proved that together, community conquers all.”
