“With a heavy heart, I believe now is not the right time to join the pageant. I still feel tired, and I don't think my body will allow me to participate in the activities of Miss Universe Philippines... I've thought hard and cried for so many nights about this. I have the willpower, but my body is not cooperating…
“I'm praying for your utmost understanding. I love you all!! Mahal na Mahal ko kamo!! Salamatunon tabi sa gabos. This is your Miss Universe Philippines SORSOGON 2020, Maria Isabela Galeria,” she wrote on Instagram.
