Herlene Budol took to social media and expressed gratitude to those who are part of her pageant journey.
In a lengthy Facebook post, Herlene first thanked the Lord for giving her another blessing, the Miss Philippines Tourism crown.
“Thank you Lord sa lahat ng blessings na tinatamasa ko po ngayon. Hindi ko man nakuha ang top crown, at least may crown pa din ang Hipon girl niyo. Kahit 3rd crown pa yan, iwawagayway ko pa rin ang bandila ng Pilipinas sa international stage.”
She then aired appreciation to her manager Wilbert Tolentino, pageant training camp Kagandahang Flores, her glam team, her speech coach, her designer, and Madam Inutz, among others.
