Bea Rose Santiago hopeful of winning Miss Int’l Crown

Bea-Rose-Santiago

Bea Rose Santiago, the 23-year old Philippine representative to this year’s Miss International tilt, is optimistic about her chances in winning the crown for the country.

The pageant’s grand coronation night will be held in Japan on Dec. 17.

According to Santiago, she aims to bring “happiness” to her countrymen following the hardships wrought by typhoon Yolanda.

“I dedicate my performance in Miss International for them. I’m going there not as Bea Santiago, but as Miss Philippines, and I am hoping to win the crown for our country, “she said.

She added rather dramatically, “I’m gonna bring the storm [to] Japan, that’s what I’m gonna do.”

Born in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Santiago was raised in Masbate before her family eventually migrated to Toronto, Canada.

” I spent my high school and college life there,” she shared.

Santiago worked as a model with the Ford Modelling Agency as with Elite Models of Canada.

The Philippines has produced several candidates who ended up bringing home the Miss International crown, namely Gemma Teresa Cruz (1964), Aurora Pijuan (1970), Melanie Marquez (1979), and Precious Lara Quigaman (2005).
