Catriona Gray posts a long message to her fans who were disappointed with the results of the Miss World 2016 pageant.


“I can securely say that I am.”

Ito ang paniniyak ni Miss World-Philippines Catriona Gray sa mga nagtatanong kung “okay” lang ba siya matapos mabigong makuha ang korona ng Miss World 2016.

Nakapasok si Catriona sa Final 5 subalit hindi napabilang sa Top 3.

Ginanap ang Miss World 2016 sa Maryland, USA, nitong December 18 (December 19 sa Pilipinas).

Si Stephanie del Valle ng Puerto Rico ang kinoronahang bagong Miss World.

Gayunpaman, hanggang ngayon ay marami pa ring Filipino supporters si Catriona ang nagsasabing deserve niya ang mas mataas na ranking dahil sa kanyang magandang performance sa pageant.

Nitong Miyerkules ng hapon, December 21, nag-post ng mahabang mensahe si Catriona sa kanyang Instagram account.

Ito ang kauna-unahang post niya matapos ang Miss World 2016 pageant.

Pahayag ni Catriona, “Hello my loving fans, supporters and friends. How is everyone?

“The question most of you are asking is if I'm okay and I can securely say that I am.”

Higit pa raw sa isang beauty pageant ang Miss World para sa kanya.

“Miss World was never just a beauty contest to me.

“The crown represented a journey, one that grew from being an independent endeavor to one that became more than me.

“A journey that rallied the support and love of my countrymen.

“A journey that forced me to look into myself and discover what I was made of.

“A journey that found its heart in the children in one of the poorest slums of my country.

“Yes, the crown represented a journey...until I realized that the journey could continue and exist without it.

“I truly believe that God always knows what's best and I trust in his plan and perfect timing.”

Pagpapatuloy pa ng 22-anyos na dalaga, laking tuwa niya nang makapasok sa Top 5 ang kanyang Beauty With a Purpose video dahil nangangahulugan itong pupunta ang Miss World Organization sa Pilipinas upang suportahan ang adbokasiyang isinusulong niya.

“I was a mess of emotion because being able to have the work that Young Focus in Manila is doing acknowledged was so gratifying.”

Hiningi pa ni Catriona ang tulong ng kanyang mga tagasuporta na ituloy ang laban, hindi para sa korona kundi ang laban para matulungan ang mga batang mas nangangailangan.

“So with that, I want to say Maraming Salamat Po to my tireless supporters, you gave up your time and effort to vote or comment and participate in this journey. Your passion and drive has been so inspiring.

“Thank you to everyone who has left me comments, approached me in person since the announcement to show me their admiration and kind words and my loving family, you've lifted my spirits.

Sa mga nagtatanong kung ano ang susunod para sa kanya, sagot ng beauty queen: “That's yet to be discovered but I am honored to have been able to represent my country on the world stage, to capture hearts all around the world and to make you all proud.

“Keep your torches burning. Mine is burning stronger than ever.”

Hello my loving fans, supporters and friends. ???????????? How is everyone? The question most of you are asking is if I'm okay and I can securely say that I am. ???? Miss World was never just a beauty contest to me. The crown represented a journey, one that grew from being an independent endeavor to one that became more than me. A journey that rallied the support and love of my countrymen. A journey that forced me to look into myself and discover what I was made of. A journey that found its heart in the children in one of the poorest slums of my country. Yes, the crown represented a journey...until I realized that the journey could continue and exist without it. I truly believe that God always knows what's best and I trust in his plan and perfect timing. One of the happiest moments was when the top 5 of Beauty with a Purpose was announced, meaning that MWO would visit and support the advocacies and the PHILIPPINES was called. I was a mess of emotion because being able to have the work that Young Focus in Manila is doing acknowledged was so gratifying. On my official FB page I have uploaded my BWAP video. Please share to raise awareness along with the donation information below so that we can continue fighting...not for a title but for the betterment of the lives of our countries children. ???????? So with that I want to say Maraming Salamat Po to my tireless supporters, you gave up your time and effort to vote or comment and participate in this journey. Your passion and drive has been so inspiring. Thank you to everyone who has left me comments, approached me in person since the announcement to show me their admiration and kind words and my loving family, you've lifted my spirits. Where will the journey take me next? That's yet to be discovered but I am honored to have been able to represent my country on the world stage, to capture hearts all around the world and to make you all proud. Keep your torches burning. Mine is burning stronger than ever. Your Miss World Philippines, Catriona
