by | Entertainment

She’s maybe the first ever Filipina to compete in Reina Hispanoamerica pageant, but the Winwyn Marquez is determined to make a huge impression and bring home glory to the nation.

Marquez said that she is pressured yet very willing to equip skills like learning Spanish just to make the Philippines proud of her.

“I’m just happy kasi I’m going to be the first Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas candidate, first ever Filipina to compete sa Bolivia. I’m going to fly, I think, end of October. I’m pretty nervous but it’s good na rin na malapit na siya kasi yung momentum ko nandoon pa rin. But I’m still going to train,” ABS-CBN quoted Marquez.

The daughter of Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno is determined that the former colony of Spain for over three centuries can win the competition on the first try.

The Philippines is the first and only Asian country to compete in the Hispanic-dominated beauty pageant.

But before her training for Reina Hispanoamerica begins, she will first celebrate her fresh hard-earned victory she got on September 3.

“I joined the pageant not expecting anything. Sabi ko I’m going to enjoy. I’m going to show people what I’ve got. I’m going to perform and I’m going to show people na I can answer well, that I’m ready. So God’s will siguro talaga. Sobrang overwhelmed,” she said.

Marquez previously joined Binibining Pilipinas in 2015, where she finished her journey as part of the top 15.

She is also seen in GMA shows lke Encantadia and Mulawin vs. Ravena.
