Nag-sorry, ‘Project Become’ ni Katarina laglag sa Miss U!
SO...CHISMIS ITOH!? - Ruel Mendoza (Pang-masa) - December 7, 2018 - 12:00am

Mukhang inaalat ang Philippine representative natin sa Miss World 2018 na si Katarina Rodriguez. 

 

Hindi nga nakaabante si Katarina sa ilang fast-track competition ng Miss World na sana’y maglalagay sa kanya sa Top 20. Ang huling chance na sana ni Katarina ay ang ginawa niyang video para sa Beauty with a Purpose (BWAP) project na may title na Project Become. Pero hindi rin ito naging successful.

Nag-apologize nga si Katarina via Facebook, lalo na sa mga taong tumulong sa pagbuo ng kanyang BWAP project.

“I wanted to say I am so sorry to all of the people who worked on this Beauty with a Purpose (BWAP) project with me. It may have been because of specific guidelines, which I was unfortunately unaware of, that I did not even cross for the top 20 BWAPs this year for Miss World.

“This is my whole heart. Everything I am has been put into this project and into this dream. I guarantee I will only ever speak and show the truth and this video does exactly that. It hurt me that I did not qualify for BWAP more than anything else has in the past because I wanted the world to see what war and violence does to real life people.”

Ang Project Become ni Katarina ay tungkol sa mga displaced kids sa Marawi City pagkatapos nang naganap na gulo roon. Ang main goal daw ng video ni Katarina ay ang makapag-provide ng building materials para sa muling paggawa ng mga school at ang may mag-invest na mga tao para sa edukasyon ng mga bata roon.

Mapapanood din sa video ang pakikipag-usap ni Katarina sa pamilya ng mga sundalo na naapektuhan sa Marawi City.

Ayon pa kay Katarina, kaya raw hindi nabigyang pansin ang kanyang video ay dahil may mga guidelines siyang hindi nasunod.

“Miss World has guidelines and sadly, I had no briefing about them before creating my BWAP, other than the time limit. I meant no disrespect and wish I had known. I also wanted to say thank you for generating this powerful channel for us to give our hearts to. Nevertheless as I’ve said you can only ever expect truth from me.

“My BWAP is reality. It’s a reality in Marawi, in Syria, in Myanmar, in Chile, India, Libya, South Africa, Palestine, Ecuador and in communities where discrimination against race, religion, gender and culture occur. Where peace lacks, everything else becomes present. Peace education is so important because it will teach the children and youth the differences between people and promote acceptance over exclusion. It’s a simple solution to war & violence and other stigmas WORLD WIDE. My BWAP focuses now on the community in Marawi, but my vision for the Teach Peace Build Peace Movement is GLOBAL.”

Kabilang sa mga nakapag-advance na sa Miss World bilang semi-finalists ay ang mga candidates from France, Japan, United States, and Nepal.

Ang grand coronation night ng Miss World 2018 ay sa December. 8.
