Pinapurihan ni Miss Universe Australia 2020 Maria Thattil ang Miss Universe Philippines Organization (MUPO) dahil sa pagtanggal nito sa height requirement sa mga aplikante nila.

Noong June 7, inanunsiyo ng MUPO ang mga kuwalipikasyon para sa mga mag-a-apply bilang kandidata sa Miss Universe Philippines 2021 pageant.

Maaaring sumali ang mga babae edad 18 hanggang 28, Filipino citizen na may Philippine passport, hindi nag-asawa o nanganak, at wala nang height requirement.

Ibig sabihin, kahit ang mga babaeng hindi nabiyayaan ng katangkaran ay maaaring sumali.

Nakarating ang balitang ito kay Maria, na ilang beses nakasama ni Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo sa ilang events sa 69th Miss Universe pageant.

Sa kanyang Instagram ngayong araw, June 9, ibinahagi ni Maria ang balitang ito na para sa kanya ay isang magandang kaganapan sa beauty pageants.

Nanawagan din siya sa iba pang organisasyon na gayahin ang hakbang na ito ng MUPO.

Pahayag ni Maria, “Woke to the great news that @themissuniverseph removed the height requirement in the @missuniverse competition.

@missuniverseaustralia.official never encouraged me to ever perceive it as a barrier.

“In fact, my Director @troybarbagallo would often remind me it was my power.

“With the MU organisation not imposing a height requirement, I’d love to see other national organisations follow suit. Why? It’s simple.”

Dagdag pa ni Maria, isa siya sa pinakamaliit na kandidata sa Miss Universe 2020 pero at least daw ay nakapasok siya sa Top 10.

Saad niya, “Miss Universe is a powerful global ambassador. All the delegates are too, and have the opportunity to ignite global change for GOOD.

"Look at me - at 5’3, I did exactly that. And I did it as the shortest candidate in my cohort, one of the shortest in MU’s seven decade history ... and in the top 10.”

Pagbigay-puri pa niya sa MUPO, “Well done @themissuniverseph for challenging exclusive beauty standards. The number of cms you stand tall doesn’t dictate your ability to be a leader and change maker. Less barriers to access for all women - here is to progress.

“If you agree, share with #HeightIsNoBarrier - your voices matter

#MissUniverse #MissUniverseAustralia #Inclusivity

Marami ang nagkomento nang positibo at sumang-ayon kay Maria sa kanyang post.
