Catriona Gray looked back at her Binibining Pilipinas journey as she marked the anniversary of her crowning moment as the country’s representative to Miss Universe.
The reigning Miss Universe posted a video of her Binibining Pilipinas coronation night moments made by Jojo Luarca on Instagram.
“One year ago today…This was a night that the dream to represent my country came true,” she captioned the video.
“Joining @bbpilipinasofficial despite my fears, proving all those people who said I couldn’t wrong…,” the Filipina beauty wrote.
Gray said her crowning moment as Miss Universe Philippines made her realize that the doors which closed on her in the past years were not “denying” her but “redirecting” her to something even better than she “could ever have dreamed of.”
“Sometimes the Universe has bigger things in store for you…” said the fourth Filipina Miss Universe, who in 2016 failed to win the coveted Miss World title.
Gray then reminded her followers to stay true to themselves, surround themselves with people who believe in them, and “put the work in and have faith.”
“Forever a Ms Philippines…forever a Binibini,” the beauty queen concluded.
Yesterday, the names of candidates for Binibining Pilipinas 2019 were revealed.
