A press conference was held today , October 23, 2013, presenting the 12 young Cebuanas competing for Miss Cebu 2014 at the Marriot Hotel Cebu. The Cebu Media get to test the wits of the young ladies vying for the prestigious title.
Here are a few questions from the media and some notable answers from the ladies.
“Why join Miss Cebu? ” – question from Mr. Roger Serna of Cebu Provincial Government
Candidate Number 6: Kirstie Gayle Barbas answered, ” I believe that Ms. Cebu 2014 is a pageant that personifies women who are not just intelligent and has the heart to inspire other people and believe that this pageant gives us the platform and venue and the opportunity to grow and mature as a person, as a Cebuana and to serve as an inspiration to other aspirants and the people around us.”
ABS CBN Bottomliner and Philippine Star opinion columnist/ writer Mike Acebedo Lopez asked the girls on the growing opinion against helping publicly and how they justify themselves from being criticized for their sincerity in giving a helping hand.
Candidate Number 8: Cheriemel Diane Muego replied, ” It’s a matter of consistency. If people saw you before that you are advocating something and you would continue to do that then people would not suspect you because from that moment you started helping other people and sincerely helping then there’s nothing to prove. In fact, when we weren’t proclaimed Ms. Cebu 2014 candidates, we were already helping the victims of bohol ad that’s something am proud of.”
The candidates were also asked who their biggest competitors are and the top 4 names mentioned by the candidates were Crystal, Hannah, Dianne and Psychee.
Miss Cebu 2014 Coronation Night will be on January 15, 2014, 6:30PM at the Pacific Grand Ballroom, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel.
