And Johanna is very open to share everything. She always tells me to just enjoy the moment, never get tired of smiling. Be lavish in your praises for the people at the pageant, but do it out of sincerity.”


Sa December 5 na gaganapin ang Miss Supranational 2014 beauty pageant sa Krynica-Zdroj, Poland.

Ang kandidata ng Pilipinas ngayong taon na si Yvethe Marie Santiago ang makikipagtunggali sa higit 78 candidates mula sa iba’t ibang bansa.

Alaga rin ng beauty-queen maker na si Jonas Gaffud si Yvethe.

At ‘tulad ng naranasan ni Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti sa Miss International 2014, malaking pressure ang pageant na ito kay Yvethe dahil ang Pilipinas ang may hawak ng korona ng Miss Supranational—si Mutya Johanna Datul.

Umaasa ang maraming beauty pageant aficionados na magkaroon ng back-to-back win ang Pilipinas.

Nabigo tayo sa Miss International at sana ay hindi ito mangyari sa Miss Supranational.

Very positive naman si Yvethe na hindi imposible ang magkaroon ng back-to-back win ang Pilipinas.

Saad ng beauty queen sa panayam sa kanya ng Headstart ng ANC, “I know I’m facing tough competition.

“But my passion to bring home the crown will fire me up for this fight and I’m excited to see what it will empower me to do come pageant time.”

Nagkaroon ng send-off party para kay Yvethe sa Balay, Araneta Center, Quezon City, noong November 11, para sa kanyang pakikipag-compete sa Miss Supranational in Poland.

BRINGING HOME THE CROWN. Ayon kay Yvethe, inspirasyon at nagmo-motivate sa kanya ang kanyang pamilya.

Hindi raw iniinda ng kanyang pamilya ang mahabang biyahe mula Manila hanggang sa probinsiya ng Daraga, Albay, para lang makasama siya.

“My family has sacrificed so much, going back and forth from Manila to Bicol to check on me.

“And so I want to win and make them proud.

“I also want to bring home the crown to the Filipinos who have given all their love and support.”

Dumaan sa extensive training si Yvethe mula sa kanyang mentor na si Jonas at iba pang beauty and social experts para maihanda siya sa kanyang paglaban sa Miss Supranational.

“We’ve had personality development trainings, lessons about the Philippines, so that you have a lot of things to share.

“And also, we have one-on-one trainings with people who tell us what to do on stage, even on etiquette and stuff like that.

“And of course, going to the gym is important.”

Panay rin daw ang pakikipag-usap ni Yvethe sa reigning Miss Supranational na si Mutya Johanna Datul para makakuha siya ng magagandang insights tungkol sa pageant at sa naging experience nito bago nito mapanalunan ang korona.

“Every chance we have together, we talk about what I can do to shine at the pageant.

"And Johanna is very open to share everything.

“She always tells me to just enjoy the moment, never get tired of smiling.

“Be lavish in your praises for the people at the pageant, but do it out of sincerity.”

HIGH EXPECTATIONS. Aware daw si Yvethe na malaki ang expectation sa kanya ng maraming tao kaya dito siya kinakabahan.

“It’s quite nerve-racking to know that there are people who have high expectations from me.

“But I’d like to think of being one of the favorites is a compliment in the sense that it means that other people outside the country see the Philippine candidate as someone worth looking at.

“I won’t take that for granted but instead will still do my best and show them I deserve it.

“I’m really happy that a lot of people believe in me and right now in my Supranational journey.

“And I hope that whatever happens, they will always be there because they give me strength and they inspire me to do my best,” sabi ng beauty queen and future certified public accountant.
