Mariel kinoronahan din ang yaya!

TAKE IT TAKE IT - Lolit Solis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - May 3, 2017 - 12:00am

Hindi nakalimutan ni Bb. Pilipinas International Mariel de Leon na pasalamatan si Lilibeth Taguibao, ang yaya niya nag-alaga sa kanya mula pa noong bagets pa siya.

Touching ang message ni Mariel para sa kanyang Ate Beth at napatunayan ng mga tao ang napakabuti na kalooban ng anak nina Christopher de Leon at Sandy Andolong.

“Thank you so much Ate for being with me everyday. Since I was a child, you have always been there for me and you helped me with whatever I needed. Kung wala akong Ate Beth, nako! I will always be stressed! Haha!

“ Thank you for always supporting me, defending me, and loving me like a daughter. We’re always be together, package deal na tayo hahaha. Because I am a Binibini, you are a Binibini.

Because I am Miss International Philippines 2017, you are also Miss International Philippines 2017! Beauty queen ka, Ate! Beautiful inside, and out! I love you!” ang sey ni Mariel sa kanyang pinakamamahal na yaya na kasama sa mga natensyon sa coronation night ng Bb. Pilipinas 2017 noong Linggo.

Nag-thank you rin si Mariel sa kanyang mga magulang, kapatid, kaibigan at siyempre, sa love of her life na si Eric Luz.

Memorable kay Mariel ang coronation night ng Bb. Pilipinas dahil si Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa ang nagputong ng korona niya.

Malaking challenge kay Mariel ang sundan ang tagumpay ni Kylie sa Miss International. Ang maganda, marami ang naniniwala na mananalo si Mariel sa international beauty contest na sasalihan niya at matutupad ang back-to-back win nila ni Kylie na hinuhulaan ng mga mahihilig sa beauty pageant.

“This is the night that changed my life. The night the lion came out! It made it even more memorable because I was crowned by Kylie Versoza! Miss International was always one of the crowns I was dreaming of because they represent ethereal beauties who are strong but gentle, compassionate, intelligent, kind, and are willing to take action to change the world.

God has answered my prayers. His love is amazing! Thank you, Father! 

“Thank you Nanay, Tatay, and my siblings for supporting me since day 1. Without you guys, I am nothing and I wouldn’t be the woman I am today. We have all always shared so much love with each other and I am so grateful for all of you. God has blessed me with the best parents and siblings ever! I love you all.
“Thank you to my friends, my relatives, and Ate Esai for always being so excited for me and for always supporting me through this whole journey.

“Thank you also to my boyfriend for always sending me loving and kind words whenever I felt down and for always making me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world!
“To my ‘Titas of Manila’ group! Tita Toni, Voltaire, and Tito Rhett. Thank you for always having my back and always giving me advice. Your guidance has helped me push through the competition with flying colors! 
“To my
Aces & Queens family. I am so grateful and over the moon to be part of your family since 2013. You helped mold me from a girl to a woman... A princess to a QUEEN. The Aces & Queens are the best beauty queen makers in the whole world but the real queens are all you mamas and papas!

“You sacrifice everything in your part yet never ask for money, or anything for that matter, in return for all those training sessions. You just ask us to do our best, not for you, but for ourselves and our dreams. I am so blessed to be in s uch a generous and loving group.

“You do this out of your love and passion for beauty pageants and for us, your anaks. Without Aces & Queens, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I wouldn’t be a beauty queen.  I am Mariel de Leon, your Binibining Pilipinas International 2017!”
