Just days away from the Miss Supranational 2021 competition, the Miss World Philippines organization has appointed Dindi Pajares as their official delegate to represent Philippines at Miss Supranational 2021. Miss World Philippines national director Arnold Vegafria presented Dindi with the crown in an announcement streamed on the organization’s official Facebook page on 24th July 2021.

Contestants of Miss World Philppines 2021 were given the opportunity to vote for the fellow contestant whom they thought was best suited for the national title and Dindi came out on top. Ruffa Nava, Kathleen Paton, and Megan Campbell were also considered for the title.



Dindi will be flying out to Poland on August 3 to represent the country in Miss Supranational 2021, set for August 21. This intimate and advanced crowning was due to the rescheduling of the Miss World Philippines 2021 coronation night from 25th July to now 8th Augustfollowing the reimposition of the IATF'S heightened GCQ restrictions.

Hailing from Orani, Bataan, 28 years-old Dindi is a flight attendant at the Philippines Airlines and owns a small general merchandising business in Bataan. She is also a part of the Philippine Air Force Reserve Command. In 2011, she represented Balanga, Bataan at Miss Philippines Earth 2011 in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines and finished in the Top 20. Later, she finished in the Top 15 of Binibining Pilipinas 2016 representing Balanga.

In the press conference followed after the ceremony, Pajares shared some of her plans as she gets closer to her international stint. “I think, with every competition, a lot of girls are really good in pasarela. Some of the girls, they are good in doing their makeup. A lot of the girls, they are also with nice personalities and really good in Q&A, but I’ve been joining since I was 10. I joined a lot of beauty pageants in the Philippines and I think that I’m good in pasarela. I’m good in doing my own makeup. I have a nice personality and I know how to answer in the Q&A portion. I am all of them and I think that this is something that the world should witness in Poland,” she said.



If given the opportunity to talk about the Philippines in the international pageant, Pajares said she would boast of the country’s rich and undisturbed natural resources and advocate for inclusion and diversity. “I started working in Bataan, my province. I am focusing in the indigenous group in Bataan. They are the Magbukun community, aeta community in Bataan. We are creating hand-weaved bags and we are converting aetas in Bataan to be an ‘aetapreneur.’ I want to show to the world that they are not just aetas. They are ‘aetaprenuers,’” she added.

Pajares also mentioned that she wants “to educate people about gender equality, racial discrimination, inequality because I want to achieve an inclusive and diverse community not just in our country but the whole world. I want to inspire people to really find the value in our society not by gender, but with their capabilities. I want to let people know that you can be who you want to be. Just believe in yourself and trust your capabilities. By doing that, I know that I can inspire a lot of people to trust their capabilities and be who exactly what they want to be.”

Seven titles will still be up for grabs at the Miss World Philippines 2021 coronation night: Miss World Philippines, Miss Eco Philippines, Miss Eco Teen Philippines, Reinahispanoamericana Filipinas, Miss Multinational, Miss Philippines Tourism, and Miss Environment International.
