Michelle Dee is 27 years of age and hails from Makati city, Manila. From an accomplished family herself, Michelle was born to businessman and former actor Frederick ‘Derek’ Dee and to actress, author, and beauty queen Melanie Marquez Miss International 1979. Michelle is of Chinese-Filipino heritage, a perfect culmination of two cultures.

Not new to the pageantry, Michelle holds various titles under her belt; the stunning beauty won Miss World Philippines 2019 crown and then competed at Miss World 2019 where she placed in the Top 12. She went onto compete at Miss Universe Philippines 2022 where she was crowned Miss Universe Philippines Tourism 2022. If she decides to compete at Miss Universe Philippines 2023, this will be her second try at the national pageant.

On the education front, Michelle attended the De La Salle University in Manila, Philippines and graduated with a degree in psychology. Also, during covid-19, Michelle did not let lockdown and quarantine get in the way of pursuing her passions as she earned her certification from the Harvard Business School Online. She pursued the Entrepreneurship Essentials course from the prestigious university's online program.

Michelle’s strong experience in the pageantry, her educational background and her amicable personality makes her an ideal representative of Philippines at Miss Universe 2023. If Michelle manages to represent Philippines at Miss Universe 2023 and win, she will become the fifth Miss Universe crown for her country.
