Chanel Morales on why she heeded her dad's wish for her to join a beauty pageant: "I want my life to be something of purpose..."

Although Chanel Morales has been a fan of beauty competitions, she never thought about becoming a beauty queen herself.

But after giving it a hard thought, the Kapamilya actress then decided to try her luck in this year’s Miss World Philippines competition since she really wanted to do “something different from showbiz.”

The 5'4" candidate added, “Becoming a beauty queen is my dad’s dream for me.”

And true enough, her dad Royce Morales has been her cheerleader ever since she decided to finally give pageantry a try.

Here is Chanel with her dad Royce and mom Emie.

In an exchange of text messages with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on September 28, the Artista Academy alumna explained further why she decided to join Miss World Philippines.

She said, "I want my life to be something of purpose [and] I know that Miss World and its organization is actually doing a lot of things that help young girls create a change in our society.


“For me, a beauty queen is beyond just being beautiful, she should be sincere in what she does & true to what she believes in.”

Chanel focused more on the walk during her training with the Kagandahang Flores camp.

She has also paid close attention to her health and fitness.

She said, “I eat less, run, and work out as much as I can.”

To help her prepare for the pageant, she sought tips from her beauty queen friends including Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann, Miss Multinational Philippines 2017 Sophia Senoron, Miss Eco International 2018 Cynthia Thomalla, and Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas Teresita “Wynwyn” Marquez.

The most helpful advice she got? "To be yourself and to enjoy the competition!"

In the end, she said “I learned how to be more aware of the things that are happening everywhere around the world.

“That we beauty queens have actually a voice to change the betterment of our society.


“I also learned how to appreciate the beauty of our country- Philippines & the people striving for it to be a better place to live in.”

Miss World Philippines 2018 will crown its newest queens on October 7, 2018, at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
