Over the years, Zerothreetwo has had the privilege to meet the beautiful women who win the crown of Miss Cebu. Last January, a 19 year old Eurasian stunner won the votes of the judges with her enigmatic stage presence and flawless answers. More than that, she won our hearts with her simplicity, down to earth attitude and unique perspectives that truly make her stand out.
I can still remember the first time we decided to shoot a Miss Cebu event. We knew we couldn’t compete with the professional photographers who camped in front of the stage. With their giant lenses and expensive cameras, they would literally take picture perfect shots of everything happening on the platform
Our country loves beauty pageants. It’s only gotten bigger with recent victories in international pageants, particularly the controversial win at the recent Miss Universe. According to our very own Pia Wurtzbach, winning the crown in a beauty pageant is a symbol of hope for many Filipinos.
