Catriona Gray recently made a courageous post a few days after she received a warning from a top military official because of her ties with women's rights group Gabriela.
To recall, Lt. Gen. Antonio Parlade Jr. released a statement wherein he mentioned the beauty queen.
"The choice is yours Liza. And so with you Catriona. Don’t follow the path Ka Ella Colmenares (Locsin) took in the underground and NPA Quezon. I am sure Angel Locsin and Neri Colmenares will not tell you this,” the military official said.
The Miss Universe 2018 then took to social media to tell her followers to speak up for themselves and not be silenced.
“Please don't ever allow your voice to be silenced. You never know who's life may be impacted by your words. You never know who you'll help feel seen, courageous or comforted. When you speak up for yourself, know that in sharing your stories, you're speaking up for others too.”
