- Filipina beauty is conquering the world
- The Philippines has a seemingly endless record of winning in international beauty pageants
- For the nth time, another Philippine bet is going to a battle of grace, intelligence and purpose
Bb Pilipinas Globe 2016 Nichole Manalo is ready to walk in heels and invade the highly ancticipated competition on November 25 in Albania.
Manalo said that she is giving her best to prepare for the contest, noting that she underwent different trainings to further improve herself.
"After naman manalo, we've been privileged to have trainings under the binibini. We went underwent training like communication, personality development, fitness lahat na. So naghahananda naman kaming lahat and now I'm very much excited because I have the chance to represent our country," she noted.
She also shared that Anne Colis, her fellow Filipina who also happened to be the Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2015 titleholder has also motivated her.
"Actually nag-uusap kami through Messenger. Ang sinasabi lang niya sa akin ‘just enjoy just be yourself,’ at sabi nga she'll be there to support me so nakakataba lang ng puso kasi sinusuportahan niya ako, so alam ko yung reigning gusto din niya ako manalo," Nichole stated.
Nichole is the sister of Kate Manalo (Bb Pilipinas World 2002) and Bianca Manalo (Bb Pilipinas Universe 2009).
As what sisters would always do, the former beauty queens are very supportive to their little sister.
"Ganon pa din hindi naman nag bago. Kung nagbago man pero mas naging tutok, ganon pa din lahat andyan pa din sila. Nagbibigay ng tips to update me and ang advice tuloy tuloy pa din," Nichole said.
Aside from the basic preparations, Nichole also has her lucky charms which provide her more inspiration.
"Meron picture ng daddy ko and rosary tuwing panghinaan kasi ako ng loob yun lang kasi ang tinitignan ko e, kasi siya din ang rason kung bakit ko tinuloy to, kung bakit ko gagawin to," the Philippine candidate added.
Would Nichole make Filipinos proud again just like how Miss International Kylie Verzosa killed it in this video with her winning answer?
