Cindy Miranda Hopes To Bag The Philippines' Third Beauty Pageant Crown This YearBinibining Pilipinas - Tourism Cindy Miranda is planning to bring home the third title to the Philippines this year as she competes for the Miss Tourism Queen International 2013 tonight in Xianning, China.
Cindy wanted to be the third beauty queen this year to take home a crown after Miss Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul and Miss World 2013 Megan Young. Mutya won on September 7 while Megan clinched the coveted blue crown on September 28.
Cindy is a former TV host and "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate. She will be competing against 43 other candidates in the 8th edition of the Miss Tourism Queen International pageant.
The beauty queen said she prepared for the pageant her "whole life," and that she's praying hard to win. She had a send-off party last week.
To prepare for the pageant, Cindy was trained by Miss Universe 2010 fourth runner-up Venus Raj. She also took personality development and speech training.
More than competing for the crown, the beauty queen expressed that she wants to bring home the title so she can inspire her fellow Filipinos amid the calamities and political problems besetting the country.
Last year, it was Thailand's Kantapat Peeradachainarin who won the pageant. There was no pageant held in 2012.
