The winner for the Mrs. Philippine EuroAsia will also have the chance to compete in the prestigious Mrs. Universe international stage in 2021.
Julie Knowles, chairman of Philippine EuroAsia and the current Mrs. UK Philippine Universe 2020, said the beauty pageant will have categories for casual wear, long gown, Philippine costume, and swimwear.
"Swimwear is the most challenging because it really takes a lot of courage and confidence to be able to catwalk donning it," Knowles said.
"However, it is also very empowering to inspire other women that we can be confident in anybody form or in any age," she added.
Good luck, Mrs. Cesdon Joy Liddle on your journey! The entire Igorot community is rooting for you!
