Mariel de Leon refuses to feel pressured about her upcoming Miss International competition, saying, "If I'll pressure myself, I'll forget the whole experience and I won't enjoy the whole experience."


Marami ang nagulat sa pagiging vocal ni Bb. Pilipinas-International 2017 Mariel de Leon sa paghahayag ng kanyang opinyon tungkol sa mga isyu sa bansa.

Ngunit ayon sa anak nina Christopher de Leon at Sandy Andolong, bago pa man siya maging beauty queen ay kilala na siya ng mga malalapit sa kanya bilang ganito.

Pahayag ni Mariel, “For people who know me personally, they aren’t surprised.

"Kasi I’ve been like this like before.

“I guess, people were shocked because they have this certain image about me, na kapag beauty queen, dapat mahinhin or she shouldn’t talk.

“Just because I’m a beauty queen, that doesn’t mean I’ll gonna change myself.”

Naging kontrobersiyal nga si Mariel nang maghayag siya ng pagkadismaya sa pagkaka-appoint ng sexy performer-blogger na si Mocha Uson bilang assistant secretary ng Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO).

Dahil dito ay na-bash ng mga tagasuporta ni Mocha si Mariel. Pero may iba namang na-appreciate ang paninindigan niya.

Sino sa palagay niya ang mas marami: bashers o mga sumasang-ayon sa kanya?

Tugon ni Mariel, “Well, there’s more people that appreciated me with what I said over the haters, so it’s okay lang naman.

“Those haters, I don’t know them, so why should I care?”

Bilang beauty queen, hindi naman daw bawal magpahayag ng opinyon sa mga bagay-bagay.

Sabi ni Mariel, “I think it’s important din kasi to have smart girls.

“Like in Q&A, if you don’t have an opinion, how will you answer the question?”

Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Mariel sa opening ng pinakamalaking Pizza Hut branch sa bansa, sa SM Mall of Asia, noong August 15.

NO PRESSURE. Tinanong din si Mariel kung nakakaramdam na ba siya ng pressure sa nalalapit na Miss International competition.

Sagot ng Binibining Pilipinas titleholder, “I don’t think about the pressure.

“I’m the type of person na super chill lang.

“Whatever happens, happens. I'll accept it.”

Ano ang mga ginagawa niyang paghahanda?

“Of course, in terms of preparation, the usual...

"Gym, hair and make-up, walking, and of course, speech. 

“With regards to pressure naman, I don’t feel it."

Dugtong pa ni Mariel, “It’s weird kasi the other people around me are pressured for me.

“But I myself, I’m the one doing the competition, I’m not pressured at all. 

“Kasi, I just wanna have fun, I just wanna enjoy.

“As they say, it only happens once in a lifetime, so might as well just enjoy it. 

“Kasi, if I’ll pressure myself, I’ll forget the whole experience and I won’t enjoy the whole experience.”

Sa November lilipad papuntang Japan si Mariel para sa Miss International 2017 competition.
