With the coveted title of Miss Asia Pacific International 2018 under her belt, Sharifa Akeel has already made a name for herself in pageantry. With great power, Sharifa Akeel’s reign also came with great responsibility which she fulfilled with sincerity and dedication. After crowning Chaiyenne Huisman of Spain as her successor at Miss Asia Pacific International 2019, Sharifa is now free to extend her career in the pageantry.

The stunning 22-year-old beauty is an ideal choice to enter the first edition of Miss Universe Philippines as the organization has left the wing of Binibining Pilipinas. A Filipina model, Sharifa has shown her potential and capability already with her successful reign. A question that might arise is that why Sharifa needs to give pageantry another go when she successfully holds an international title can be answered easily as well. Miss Universe is not just one of the oldest but also the most coveted title in the whole world and known for breaking barriers. Therefore, the preliminary to Miss Universe is where Sharifa needs to put her next mark.
