MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Official candidates of The Miss Grand 2023 were presented to the members of the media recently at the Grand Ballroom of Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila.
After the screenings made at the Promenade Greenhills and the Platform Events Place in Newport World Resorts, all the qualified were then presented with their official sashes.
Miss Grand Philippines National Director Arnold Vegafria, who gave each 30 delegates their official sashes, is very optimistic about the outcome of the first-ever national selection for the Bangkok-based pageant system.
“Today, we present to you a new batch of Filipina beauties who embody the ideals of the Miss Grand International Organization, and who we feel can wave our flag proudly once more in the global pageant scene,” he said.
“Despite the controversies, I am confident that we can empower pageant fans to overlook the petty issues and focus instead on the more relevant and substantial issues that we continue to fight for.”
“We can always choose to embrace positivity in the same way that we accept each other’s unique beauty, regardless of our flaws and imperfections. It is this acceptance that enables us to transcend our ego and pride, and makes us realize how much more we can accomplish when we choose peace instead of discord, and respect instead of prejudice,” he intimated.
This is after Filipino pageant fans weren’t happy about the MGI Organization and its Thai president Nawat Itsaragrisil.
Moreover, the Swimsuit Competition will unfold from June 21 to 24 in Acqua Boracay while the Charity Gala is slated to happen on July 8th.
The 2023 Miss Grand Philippines coronation night is scheduled to be held on July 13 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Meanwhile, Miss Grand Philippines 2022 Roberta Angela Tamondong will turn over her crown to the winner.
