Miss Universe Philippines Ariella Arida Can Handle The PressureThe Philippines has already brought home two beauty pageant crowns--Miss Supranational and Miss World this year. Is the Miss Universe crown also on its way?
Miss Universe Philippines Ariella Arida is currently preparing for the pageant, which will happen this November. She said though that she can handle the pressure, and uses this as motivation.
For the past three years, the Philippines has ranked in the top five of the Miss Universe pageant. Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup and Janine Tugonon were all runner ups in the Miss Universe contest. Lately, Mutya Datul won as Miss Supranational 2013 while Megan Young was crowned as Miss World 2013.
Ariella said she is passionate of her bid to become the next Miss Universe, so she can handle the pressure well despite being the next Filipina to try to get that precious crown.
Being a beauty queen was Ariella's dream. She was inspired by Miriam Quiambao as a child. "I spoke to myself then and said that it was a possible dream and I could attain it."
"I hope the people will support me in the competition because this fight is not just about me, it’s for our country."
