Filipina beauty queen Leren Mae Bautista was able to bring home the second runner-up title during the prestigious Miss Globe 2019 pageant.
KAMI learned that the gorgeous model competed against some of the most beautiful women in the world on October 21 at Ulcinj, Montenegro.
The representative of the Philippines proudly showed that she was prepared for the competition as she was able to turn heads especially during the long gown round.
Even before the pageant, the Laguna native was able to stun a lot of people with her Maranao-inspired national costume that was designed by Chico Estiva.
During the Question and Answer round, Leren Mae was asked about how she would use her title to benefit others if ever she wins the competition.
"If I will win Miss Globe 2019, I will use this platform to create an awareness to protect our planet," she quipped.
"We could start within ourselves. We could start with small things by volunteering in our communities, by picking up the trash and throwing it to the right bin and by conserving our water. Because I believe, Mother Theresa once said, 'Not all of us can do great things but all of us can do small things with great love,'" she added.
At the end of the contest, Alejandra Diaz De Leon Soler of Mexico bagged the highly-coveted crown, while Carla Jean Lares of Trinidad and Tobago won the first runner-up.
Here are the reactions of netizens:
“Congrats! Talagang ang mga Pilipino ay matatalino at magaganda. Mabuhay po tayong lahat.”
