Tinanggihan ni Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Charity Victoria Velasquez Vincent ang alok na maging Miss Universe New Zealand 2021.

Matapos daw ang ilang diskusyon kasama ang pamilya, kaibigan, at kanyang grupo, napagdesisyunan niyang huwag tanggapin ang offer na i-represent sa Miss Universe 2021 ang bansang kanyang sinilangan at kinalakihan.

Pahayag ni Victoria sa kanyang Instagram post kagabi, October 11, “Shortly after the MUPH coronation night, I was offered to be Miss Universe New Zealand 2021.

“After a week of contemplation, countless discussions with my family, friends and team, I eventually came to the decision to politely decline the offer.”

Posible raw na marami ang magsabing mali siya sa kanyang pagtanggi sa alok, pero alam niyang tama ang kanyang desisyon. Ang gusto raw niya ay magsilbi sa Pilipinas kahit may sabihin pa ang ibang tao laban sa kanya.

Saad ni Victoria, “So many people will say I’m crazy for turning down this opportunity, but I had to choose what I know in my heart was the right thing to do.

“My heart is, and always will be here to serve the Philippines. Some may say I’m not Filipina enough, and that’s ok. I know who I am.

Nagpasalamat naman si Victoria sa pamunuan ng Miss Universe New Zealand sa kanilang offer sa kanya.

“Thank you to the MUPH org for offering your support regardless of what I decided to do.

“I am so excited to see what the future holds for us, Philippines.

“Victoria Velasquez Vincent
