"I have been dreaming for this crown since I was 16 years old, and when I got to experience it, it was overwhelming and exciting at the same time. But now, it was better than I imagined," Latugat added while thanking all her supporters.

I know that being your queen is going to be one of the biggest responsibilities of my life. But it is a role I am ready and willing to partake. Because a true queen lives and leads by example," she ended.
