In a Facebook post, the new Miss Baguio thanked all those who showed love and supported her journey.

"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.

Her victory as Miss Baguio truly showcased the dominating beauty of the yKalingas around the globe. The first Miss Kalinga is LTCOL Jessie Rose Bucalen-Austria crowned in 1996. The first yKalinga to be crowned Miss Baguio City is Ms. Kyna A. Bayangan in 1999.
