A few hours from now, Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago will finally vacate her post as the reigning Queen. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude for the following reasons:
Thank you for giving us the message of hope and inspiration during the times when our country was devastated and ruthlessly ravaged with the super typhoon Haiyan. That as long as we work together, there's always HOPE.
Thank you for setting an example that through discipline, dedication and determination we can triumph and excel globally and even make our dreams a reality.
Thank you for winning the Miss International 2013 crown. It definitely adds to the beauty crown collections of the Philippines. The country is blessed with five Miss International titles to date, leading the whole Asian region and cemented its status as a powerhouse of beauty. That we are a beautiful race inside and out:)
We know how much you have desired to do more charity works during your reign. As you pass on the crown to your successor, I'm certain that new doors of opportunities will be opened - much greater opportunities that will place you in the best position to inspire and help others who are in need. We sincerely wish you the best of luck in your next goals and endeavors.
Once again, thank you very much..Maraming Salamat Po:) Mabuhay ka Bea Rose!
