Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann still in disbelief after winning the title: "Surreal… That's the only word I can use to describe what I'm feeling right now."


Laura Lehmann, the newly-crowned Miss World Philippines 2017, appears to have wakened up this morning in utter disbelief.

In her Instagram post today, September 4, she writes, “Surreal… That's the only word I can use to describe what I'm feeling right now.  

“This is a dream to me & I feel like it's going to end any moment.”

She says she still can't believe that someone “normal” like her would be chosen for the title.  

“I woke up this morning just like YOU - with my oversized pajamas, ripped blankets and two dogs beside me not believing someone as normal as me had a crown on her head.”

She adds a note of encouragement, saying her experience is proof that an ordinary girl can become a beauty queen.

“But when I took a moment to reflect, I realized instead that's the best thing about Miss World Philippines.

“A Miss World queen is just a girl, like me, like YOU, with a passion, a purpose, and a dream. She is someone who loves her country and someone who wants to help make the world a little lighter, a little brighter, in whatever way she can.

“I know that there is a lot of hate and sadness in the world today but I have always believed that people are good by nature. They are deserving of all the smiles and all the happiness in the world.”

Laura relates she joined the pageant because she believes in what Miss World is aiming to show, that beauty is beyond physical.

She says, “@MissWorld reminds us all that the greatest beauty is that in giving, and I am so proud to be part of it."

And then she gives thanks to her supporters, “Maraming, maraming salamat po. Hindi ko po makailimutan ang gabi na to. Para sa bayan.”
