As I savor the beautiful Miss Philippines Earth 2014 win of Cebuana Jamie Herrell, I can’t help but look back on her inspiring beauty pageant story 🙂 A lot of beauty queen aspirants will learn lessons from her story…
She got her first title when she won the Festival Queen 2013 title. It was a competition among lead dancers of contingents participating in the Sinulog 2013 Grand Mardigras. Then, she won the Reyna ng Aliwan 2013 title. Aliwan Festival is an event in which different festivals in the country perform and compete. With two crowns on her head, she braved the metro and participated in Miss Resorts World 2013. Despite the experience, she went home empty handed – no special award and no finalist placement. I am assuming that it was a big disappointment specially after the two consecutive wins. However, Jamie did not focus on the fact that this time she clapped. She focused on the idea that she can compete in other pageants. That she did and the rest is a beautiful history 🙂
Our Throwback Thursday photo was the profile photo of Jamie when she joined Miss Resorts World Manila 🙂 This is to inspire all beauty queen aspirants that after every clap, get up and move on to the next pageant!
