Former PBB housemate turned model and TV host Valerie Weigmann will be one of the candidates of this year’s Miss World Philippines.
In an interview with Rappler, Valerie admitted that it was not an easy decision for her to join the pageant.
“For me it was a very big decision of course. Because I was thinking it through over the years actually of me experiencing modeling and showbiz at the same time. So it was good training for me.
She revealed that what really pushed her to go for it is her personal advocacy.
“And the really big thing that made me decided to join was really my personal advocacy which is Musikaramay. I try to help the indigenous people -our indigenous brothers and sisters from Tarlac, the Aeta community.”
Valerie is thrilled that she is now an official candidate of Miss World. Thru the pageant, she will be able to help, raise more awareness and reach out to those who are in need.
Valerie rose to fame when she joined PBB Teen Edition Plus in March 2008. Later on she became a professional print/ramp/commercial model and appeared on the cover of the June issue of Rogue Magazine. In 2013, she became part of GMA 7’s Eat Bulaga as a host together with Jose Manalo and Paolo Ballesteros in the Juan for All, All for Juan segment.
