The Miss Universe pageant is one of the most highly coveted beauty titles in the world and to represent it means national pride. With Miss Universe Philippines separating from Binibining Pilipinas in 2019, the first edition of Miss Universe Philippines i.e. Miss Universe Philippines 2020 will be hosted on 3rd May 2020 in Mall of Asia Arena, Bay City, Pasay, Metro Manila.

Adee Hitomi Akiyama has become the official representative of Oriental Mindoro for Miss Universe Philippines 2020 after she was confirmed at the red-carpet presentation held today in Manila. Adee is a Fil-Japanese beauty who finished her pre-med course recently at the De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute where she reigned as the university’s loveliest student. Later in the year, she is set to graduate from the university as a Doctor of Medicine.

Adee is an aspiring beauty queen who has prepared for the national competition with absolute sincerity and dedication. Her background in medicine will surely add as an advantage for her during the competition. She can be a tough competition for the title, even though she is new to the pageantry world, she is quick at learning skills and techniques which can help her win the title and represent Philippines at Miss Universe 2020.

Adee seems like a refreshing addition to the rare assemblage of remarkable women, all presenting their worth not in terms of physical attributes alone but in terms of what makes them a complete woman– intellect, leadership ability, social change advocacy, professional/ scholastic achievement and moral fortitude. She is an example of Filipino woman who chooses to go beyond being ‘captivating’ into the more meaningful realm of being ‘empowering’.

Adee’s education and intelligence makes her stand out in the list of beauty queens and will surely help her during the competition. She wants to use the platform to empower young women as well as raise awareness about education among people. She has amazing interview skills that will help her during the question and answer round of the competition.

Miss Universe Philippines 2019 Gazini Ganados who was crowned on June 9, 2019 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City will crown her successor by the end of the event finale. The pageant aims to encourage Filipina women to become empowered individuals, who also embody the mission of being agents of meaningful change wherever they are. It trains participants to become role models, pursuing personal and professional goals, while also leaving and inspiring positive impact in society.
