Dindi Pajares, one of the forty-five stunning beauties set to compete for the eight titles at stake at Miss World Philippines 2021, was chosen Miss Supranational Philippines 2021 by the candidates through voting. The voting happened because the coronation of Miss World Philippines 2021 was shifted from 25th July 2021 to 8th August 2021 and the dates overlapped with Miss Supranational 2021 in Poland.

Ruffa Nava, Kathleen Paton and Megan Deen Campbell were also the finalists for the title but Pajares received the highest number of votes. Dindi will leave the Philippines and fly to Poland on 3rd August 2021 for her international stint.

Origin and Profession

From Orani, Bataan, Dindi owns a small general merchandising business in Bataan. She is a flight attendant at the Philippines Airlines. The stunning beauty is a military sergeant and a part of the Philippine Air Force Reserve Command.

Pageant Journey

Pajares pageant journey began at the age of 10 but she felt like it wasn’t her calling for a long time. As she grew up losing in pageants for the past 18 years, she felt she did not belong with the other women on stage.



"I started joining beauty pageants at the age of 10. In the 18 years that I have been competing before Miss World Philippines, l — I have always lost. In all those times I was on the stage with some of the most beautiful women, I felt like I didn’t belong. After my last pageant, I decided to take a break from chasing my dreams of having my own crown and becoming a beauty queen," she said. 

Pajares said she was ready to live a life away from pageantry, until a Europe trip in 2019 brought her back on track. "That year, I chanced upon the Trevi fountain in Italy, and, as all travelers do, I made a wish to ask for guidance on my new path in life away from pageantry and as all Trevi wishers do, to travel back to Europe," she said. 

In 2011, Pajares represented Balanga, Bataan at Miss Philippines Earth 2011 in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines and finished in the Top 20. In 2016, she represented Balanga at Binibining Pilipinas 2016 in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines and finished in the Top 15. In 2017, she represented Balanga at Bb. Pilipinas 2017 in Quezon City but remained unplaced.




Pajares advocates 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 said.

Pajares also wants to educate people about gender equality, racial discrimination, inequality because she wants to achieve an inclusive and diverse [community] not just in her country but the whole world. She wants to inspire people to really find the value in our society not by gender, but with their capabilities. Pajares wants to let people know that you can be who you want to be. Just believe in yourself and trust your capabilities.
