Cebu City, Philippines — Nicole Borromeo started her year with a bang after being hailed as Sinulog Festival Queen 2019.
The title gives her a ticket to represent Cebu in the Reyna ng Aliwan 2019 and Miss Millennial Philippines 2019.
But this young beauty queen capped the first quarter of 2019 with another opportunity.
Last week, Borromeo was one of the six young Cebuanas who made it to the cut of Miss Teen Philippines – Central Visayas 2019.
Borromeo is not just a pretty face.
Citing the problem on pollution, she will highlight the advocacy on proper solid waste management as she is about to represent Central Visayas in the Miss Teen Philippines 2019 on May 8, 2019 in Manila.
“Climate change is considered the top concern. I strongly believe in the saying that we are not apart from nature, we are a part of it,” she told Cebu Daily News Digital.
To implement such advocacy, she wants to continue The Wave Project, an advocacy project by the Miss Mandaue organization.
“I hope together with the organization, we can implement an interactive and educational project that highlights the importance of our environment,” she said.
The project was first introduced in the Mandaue City Central School.
Borromeo is a native of Barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City and a senior high school student from Cebu Doctors’ University (CDU).
Titles under her belt are like Miss Silka Cebu 2017 and Miss Mandaue 2018 first runner-up.
Among the reasons why she likes being a beauty queen is because she wants to inspire others to be a woman of substance.
“I want to be someone who has the courage to act on her beliefs with elegance and kindness because kindness creates this chain reaction,” she said. /bmjo
