With Samantha Ashley Lo’s resignation from her title of Miss Grand Philippines 2019 right after she represented Philippines in Miss Grand International 2019 last year, the speculations began on who will be taking over the title of Miss Grand Philippines. While plenty of rumours were spread about the replacement, only one name sufficed and it was none other than Aya Abesamis Binibining Pilipinas 2019 first runner-up.

The stunning Aya Abesamis has carried the burden of being a daughter of a ‘pageant royal’ as her mother is none other than Miss Universe 1984 3rd runner-up Desiree Verdadero-Abesamis. Having faced a lot of challenges in her pageant career, her journey has not been easy but surely has been fruitful. Aya began her career in Binibining Pilipinas 2018 where she gained as much experience as she could and placed in the Top 15 at the end of the event finale. It was a job well-done for a first timer.

At the end of the coronation night, Aya came out victorious as she placed as the first runner-up at the national pageant. Aya has shown tremendous potential to become an international queen and its safe it say ‘pageantry is in her blood’.
