Miss Universe Philippines 2020, hosting the inaugural edition of Miss Universe Philippines, is all set to begin the journey as the Red Carpet Presentation i.e. the official Press Presentation will be held on 14th February 2020 at the Manila Hotel. The official contestants of the pageant will be presented to the press.

Adee Hitomi Akiyoma, the Filipina-Japanese beauty, will aspire to become a Miss Universe Philippines 2020 official candidate as the representative of Oriental Mindoro. The stunning beauty 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.

Along with her education, Adee is also a beautiful diva who has prepared for the national competition with absolute sincerity and dedication. Her background in medicine will surely be advantageous, with all the previous winners such as Miss Universe 2016 Iris Mittenaere coming from a medical background.

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’.

While Miss Universe Philippines has branched out from Binibining Pilipinas from this year, it will be interesting to see who makes it to the list of the contestants and compete for the national title to represent Philippines in Miss Universe 2020 and according to us Adee will surely be a strong contender for the crown.
