MAYNILA – Ilang araw bago ang coronation night ng ika-71 Miss Universe, nagpasalamat ang isa sa mga kandidata ng naturang international pageant na si Evlin Khalifa, Miss Universe Bahrain 2022, sa kanyang team na binubuo ng mga Pilipino.
Nagpahayag ng kanyang mensahe ang kandidata sa pamamagitan ng isang Instagram post at aniya, hindi niya matatawag ang kanyang sarili na “queen” kung hindi dahil sa mga nagtulong-tulong para sa kanyang paghahanda.
“I always believe in gratitude. Without it, we will never appreciate the beauty of a glass half full / half empty. The moment you feel it in your core is the only way you can summon the Universe,” aniya.
“I also harmonize with the fact that the world is a beautiful, multicultural space wherein we cannot limit our borders to a single island, place or nation, I believe that working together and being global is the best way to love, to progress and move forward,” dagdag pa niya.
“In Bahrain, it might be a new opportunity for us to join the greatest competition of its kind @missuniverse but the wind beneath my wings are undoubtedly the best in pageantry. And this post is dedicated to my undying GRATITUDE to my Filipino Team, without them – I can never call myself a queen. It’s team work and I am so thankful to each and everyone who is part of my journey. You don’t know how much I love you 🇵🇭 Mahal ko kayo, to my walk trainer, my make up artists, my stylist, my designer – all Filipinos – especially to my ever supportive National Director who is a certified Filipino pride and my co National Director – both of them have given me their entire efforts, time and wisdom so I can stand on the Miss Universe stage as they help me become a true transformational queen,” pagpapasalamat ni Miss Universe Bahrain 2022 sa kanyang all-Filipino team.
Sa huli, lubos na nagpasalamat ang kandidata.
Bigo namang makapasok ang kandidata sa Top 16 ng naturang international pageant.
