Rebecca Anne Dollisen of Argao, the recent winner of Miss Argao in October, described MUPH-Cebu as an “exciting journey” and an opportunity for self-discovery.

“I am preparing for the competition by assembling a dream team. That is crucial… You need people who will support you and your cause, whatever you set your dreams to,” Dollisen shared during the press conference on Saturday, December 23.

Dollisen added, “I need to find myself a team that will manage my schedules, make me beautiful, and of course, I need to train myself because I am up against women of such caliber. I need to be prepared because if I want that crown, I need to be deserving of it.”

Meanwhile, Kris Tiffany Janson of Cebu City North, who was crowned Miss Intercontinental – 2nd runner-up in 2014, described MUPH-Cebu as a “different and new feeling.”

“I am grateful for this opportunity because ten years seem to have passed so quickly; a lot has changed. I want to put it out there as a message that age is just a number. You’re never too old to look deep into your heart to find what you really love,” Janson said.

She added, “You have to believe in yourself before people see, before people believe in you. A mentor of mine told me, you will be at your best, but there’s always room for improvement. I take it one day at a time and also learn from these beautiful and equally talented women.” /clorenciana
