According to Michele, she has not neglected her responsibilities as a professional athlete and as a businesswoman.
"Unfortunately po, because of my age, there will be no more beauty pageants for me," said Michele.
She said though that even if she would be retiring from beauty pageants, she will still keep her advocacy in sports.
Spin.ph noted that she is eyeing another career but now is not the perfect time yet to make it known.
In GMA News the Quezon City beauty said that she will be involved in more projects soon.
Michele Gumabao previously admitted that she left the viewing party of Miss Universe Philippines because she could not stand being asked about the results over and over again. After all, she explained that the results were already known, which was why she did not attend the said event anymore.
The one who won the prestigious competition was Rabiya Mateo. She is an Iloilo beauty. She answered the question regarding the kind of paper currency and who should be in that currency. Her answer greatly appeared as the best one. She said that if there was someone who deserves to be on paper currency, it would be the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago.
