May mga nagsabing ang Philippine delegate ang deserving na manalo ng Miss International 2018 title, pero nakuha ni Mariem ang simpatiya ng mga hurado dahil birthday niya sa araw ng koronasyon na ginanap sa Tokyo, Japan.

"Maybe that will have a big impact [if it’s my birthday], pero hindi natin alam. It’s her destiny.

"Maybe my destiny is different so if it’s for you, it’s really for you so it’s for Venezuela that night!" ang tawang-tawang pahayag ni Ahtisa.

Tiyak nang papasok sa showbiz si Ahtisa, ayon sa kanyang manager na si Jonas Gaffud.

Ano naman ang reaksiyon ni Ahtisa sa mga nagsasabing siya ang dapat na nagwagi sa international beauty pageant na sinalihan niya?

Sagot niya, "We all have different perceptions and we all have different opinions and judgments.

"The sad thing is I hope those people who said that I should have won are judges, but the sad thing is they’re not, so it’s really the judges opinion pa rin and the organization."

Para kay Ahtisa, very good ang once in a lifetime na paglahok niya sa Miss International 2018 dahil sa mga taong kanyang nakilala at mga hindi makalilimutang karanasan.

"For me, it’s a once in a lifetime experience.

"We were treated there like royalties.

"We were given the best food, the best accommodations, the best of everything in Japan.

"I think that’s the best way to experience Japan for me and they treat us there with utmost respect and they really think that we can do something.

"We weren’t just able to meet just normal people. We were able to meet ministers. We’re able to meet leaders of the government, leaders of certain causes.

"I really feel humbled to have that experience," kuwento ni Ahtisa, na dumating sa Pilipinas mula sa Japan noong November 19, 2018.
