Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2017 Teresita Ssen "Winwyn" Marquez speaks up about being criticized by netizens for her height. She says, "I think that's the only thing they criticize about me, because I'm only 5'6". But siyempre, I don't think height matters. You should stand for your country, principles, and not your outside looks."


Sinagot ni Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2017 titlist Teresita Ssen "Winwyn" Marquez ang pagpuna ng ilang netizens tungkol sa kanyang height.

Maliit daw ang kanyang height na 5'6" para sa isang beauty queen.

Sa pamamagitan ng Instagram Story, nag-post si Winwyn ng reaksiyon tungkol dito.

Sabi niya, "why can't you move on with my height? am i the only 5'6" woman that joined a pageant sa buong mundo?"

Dagdag pa ni Winwyn, "I may be shorter than them but will that stop me from performing 110% for my country? NO."


Sa panayam naman ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa 25-year-old beauty queen, nagbigay siya ng karagdagang pahayag tungkol sa pagpuna sa kanyang height.

Saad ni Winwyn, “I think that’s the only thing they criticize about me, because I’m only 5’6”.

“But siyempre, I don’t think height matters.

“You should stand for your country, principles, and not your outside looks.

“So, sana maging supportive sila.

“Pero I respect their opinion.

"May kanya-kanya rin tayong gustong hitsura na maging beauty queen.

"Pero ako, I’ll just show that I’m determined to win. I have the will to join, and my height won’t stop me.

“At the same time, I’m not the only 5’ 6” [candidate] who will join the pageant.”

Nakausap ng PEP.ph si Winwyn sa send-off gathering para sa kanila ni Miss World Philippines 2017 Laura Lehmann, noong Miyerkules, October 18.

Ani Winwyn, ginagawa na lamang niyang inspirasyon ang mga pumupuna sa kanya.

“I still wanna thank them because, every time I read that o ma-glimpse ko yun, mas pinapalakas nila ako, e.

“Kumbaga, mas napu-push ako na gusto kong galingan para maipakita na, even tough I’m shorter than the other candidates, I can perform well.”
