Will Bea be the Philippines’ 5th Miss International?
As the year draws to a close, another Binibini is set to make waves in another international pageant. Binibining Pilipinas-International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago hopes to be another source of inspiration and joy for Filipinos who are still reeling in the aftermath of Yolanda. “I’m Bisaya, from Masbate, and my province was also affected by Yolanda. While I can’t go there personally to help them, I want to dedicate my performance in Miss International for them. I’m going to Tokyo not as Bea Santiago, but as Miss Philippines, and I am hoping to win the crown for our country,” Bea declares.
