Come out, speak for yourself because you are the leader of your life, you are the voice of your own. I believed in myself and that’s why I am standing here today.”

Not only in my country but in other countries as well. However, technology can also be used to save our environment because by incorporating innovation and technology as well as sustainability, we can use those two things to come together. I am so thankful to be a woman now in 2021 and being able to have access to these things, such as solar energy and renewable energy. When mixing them together, there’s nothing we cannot do. So, I am thankful to be in a digital age of technology and it’ll be used to save the planet. Thank you.”

Miss Intercontinental 2021 Cinderella Faye Obenita

Obeñita appeared to have impressed the panel of judges and viewers when she answered the question, “As an international ambassador, do you believe that speaking English is important for Miss Intercontinental? Why or why not?”

The diva said, “As an ambassador, I don't think that speaking a specific language is very important here in Miss Intercontinental or any pageant at all. As long as that woman is a woman of power and grace, commitment, and intelligence. No matter what language she speaks, and that woman is actually a woman of style and substance, then she can win any pageant or any endeavor she is into. Also, it's very important, I have learned actually here in Miss Intercontinental, that a woman should possess power of substance. And I believe I am that woman because that is the essence of modern-day Miss Intercontinental -- that we are living in a world that's very hard to survive. And as a Miss Intercontinental, I would like to be that source of hope, that source of inspiration on the true power of beauty and that is felt on the kindness of our hearts and definitely on the sincerity of our loving actions.”

Chanique confidently answered that coming from a third world country and seeing how the leader of her country handled the covid pandemic, how wonderfully he communicated with the nation of 11 ethnic groups, she would love to get some advice from him in terms of communication for her journey forward. She believes that communication is not easy, but the leader of her country did it brilliantly.

Miss Globe 2021 Maureen Montagne

Philippines’ Maureen Montagne was crowned as Miss Globe 2021 on 5th November at Opera Theater in Tirana, Albania. During the final round she was asked, “Do you think beauty is a merit? And how can we enrich it with other values?”

The diva impressively answered, “I think that true beauty comes from within. To be a Miss Globe is to be a beauty that inspires. What makes us beautiful is our smiles, it's what we do for our community. It's how we give back to others, and it's how we carry ourselves through life. I believe that everyone has beauty in inside of them, and I believe it is our duty to share it with the world, and to give back, and to truly inspire others.”
