Resham Ramirez Saeed Miss Supranational Philippines 2019

Resham Saeed represented Philippines at Miss Supranational 2019 where she was placed at Top 25 held in Silesia, Poland. The eldest and only daughter among a brood of four, she was raised to be one of the boys. Over the years, she realized this upbringing shaped her to become the strong and outspoken woman she is today. Her childhood was defined by memories of her traveling and playing sports. “I was raised in six different countries because my dad was a businessman. I also learned to speak five languages because of that,” she shares.

Both Pinoy and Pakistani cultures are in my house and the norm was the importance will be given to the eldest son, and I feel like my parents treated me like the eldest son which made me very independent and bold.” An embodiment of a modern woman, Resham stands to fight for gender equality and women empowerment. She’s currently working with SPARK (Samahan ng mga Pilipina Para sa Reporma at Kaunlaran) which is a non-profit organization that focuses on the development of women and women’s organizations as full partners in national development. “I feel like equality needs to be pushed more than ever. Not only in terms of gender that is my advocacy, but in terms of backgrounds and diversity. There’s so much to learn from one another.”
