From brining pride to the country as the first-ever Filipina to win the prestigious Asia’s Next Top Model competition in 2017, newly-signed Star Magic talent Maureen Wroblewitz will attempt to once again make her avid supporters proud by joining the second staging of Miss Universe-Philippines this year.
As the organization released the full list of the Top 100 delegates that made it to the cut on July 19 that includes her, news of her participation in the contest immediately spread like wildfire online as a lot of pageant aficionados have been rooting for her.
She confirmed it by posting a set of her fashion shots donning a white frock and wrote in the caption, “Surprise! I apologize for the white lies. As difficult as it was, I had to keep this a secret.”
“First and foremost, I would like to thank you for the overwhelming support. Please know that I very much appreciate all the love and your kind words. This is the new chapter I’ve talked about in a recent post and I humbly ask for your continued support. It’s true what I’ve said in my interviews. I’ve always considered dipping my toes in pageantry and committing to it when I felt ready. It was not until I received my sign from the Universe, that I knew I couldn’t wait for that feeling of readiness and that I’d have to take that first step in order to feel ready. I’ve shared the importance of getting out of your comfort zone as a means to grow as a person and that’s what I’m doing once again,” the 23-year-old Filipina-German stunner further expounded.
Then she added, “This feels new and to be honest, I’m terrified but I’ve come to realize that I just fear the unknown (thank you @gerryd16). What I fear most though is living a life of regrets. I don’t want to grow old thinking that I should’ve joined, alternatively I would like to say ‘I’m glad I’ve joined’. I’ve learned to stop saying ‘one day’ and instead I say ‘day 1’. I hope through this I inspire you to reach for the Universe. It’s all up to you. You can achieve anything you put your mind to and sometimes if you believe hard enough the Universe will conspire in helping you succeed.”
But aside from her mesmerizing beauty, sexy and fit physique, admirable confidence, and notable sense of fashion – as seen in her public and media appearances and Instagram posts that we collated in this gallery – other things that make her a certified beauty queen material is her impressive eloquence and quick-wittedness, which we’re able to witness in her interviews.
One of the most remarkable interviews she arguably had was in Tonight With Boy Abunda in 2017, a few days after her victorious stint in the Cycle 5 of Asia’s Next Top Model, wherein she talked about getting bullied by fellow contestants because of having a “pretty face, yet no skills”.
