The Journey to the Miss World Pageant
Miss World competition stands as one of the most prestigious pageants today. Along with Miss Earth and Miss Universe, these pageants are the goals and dreams of hundreds of young women in dozens of countries around the world. And we all know that the Philippines has always been a strong contender when it comes to international pageant contests!
Since 2013, the Philippines has been bagging titles in different pageants globally, like Miss World (Megan Young, 2013), Miss International (Bea Rose Santiago, 2013; Kylie Verzosa, 2016), Miss Earth (Jamie Herrell, 2014; Angelia Ong,2015), and Miss Universe (Pia Wurtzbach, 2015). Now, this time of the year, Filipina beauties will once again vie for the Miss World – Philippines competition.
And this year, young Eventurer Faye Deveza is one of the 35 women who’ll be competing for the Miss World – Philippines title.
We had the honor to get to know Faye and we’d like to share with you why we believe she deserves to be the next Miss World – Philippines.
Learning More About Candidate No. 8 – Faye Dominique Deveza
Keeping Fit and Eating Right
One of the best-known tips for keeping a winning figure for a competition is diet! Faye follows a very healthy and disciplined routine. “I have stopped eating rice, just vegetables, chicken breasts, and root crops,” Faye said.
Her constant dining companions. “Lettuce salad and sometimes cereals” are her breakfast staples. She stays loyal to her diet!
But in addition to the secret of diet is the power of exercise. Faye is also no stranger to keeping fit! She shared her story of how she experiences fitness everyday and how she keeps her figure. “I live in a unit on the 4th floor without elevator for four years now near my school. Plus workout in the gym is indispensable for toning my muscles.”
Imagine going up and down four flights of stairs for years and years! Adding to that, she also has her strict regimen of working out in the gym. Wit this you’ve got a one way-ticket pageant-ready body that you’ll need to win
Fashion and Shopping
You would think that a beauty queen and model would be lavish and expensive when it comes to clothes. But Faye begs to differ!
“I am a practical shopper. I don’t buy things or clothes that I don’t really need. I think twice or thrice before I buy. And also I buy sale items. But I go for the quality. I would prefer to pay higher for the quality because I know it would last longer.”
Top brands that come to mind when it comes to clothes are Zara, Topshop, and Uniqlo. As she said, she goes for the quality. And these brands won’t let you down when it comes to the quality of their clothes and apparel.
Music to Her Ears
Music also plays an important role for our Miss World – Philippines contender. We asked her what song is currently on loop during her soundtrips, and this is what she had to say!
“Malibu by Mylie Cyrus. Mylie has been my favorite Disney celebrity and I even watched her concert here. I was a fanatic. Then she changed. Malibu is a nice decent come back for Mylie. The tune never comes out of my mind,” she said.
Even with her music, Faye prefers a chill and laid-back sound. With her love for both fashion and music, Faye is truly an Eventurer
Travel and Hobbies
Of course being an Eventurer also means having the love for travel and the love for hobbies! Faye had this to say when we asked her about the local and international destinations she would love to see!
“If I were given a chance to go on a road trip, I will go to the place where I can watch and see the Aurora Borealis also known as the Northern Lights. Sweden … Norway ohhh exciting just the thought of watching it from my Igloo… haha. Lucban (for local). Other places… Cebu because it is close to the beach and the mountain while living the City life,” she said.
What a sight it would be to see the Northern Lights! Plus, it seems Gaye is definitely a beach bum! Faye also had this revalation when YuneOh asked her about her hobbies in interests, and if she considers herself an Eventurer.
“My tummy can do waves. (Shh.. secret lang ha?) Yes, I am.”
Adventure is really on Faye’s blood. “I like to climb mountains, go to the sea, anything that will surprise me. And I would prefer it over parties,” she added.
Being in the Miss World – Philippines competition
It seems Faye is truly an Eventurer! We turned the conversation into a bit more serious tone and we asked her about her advocacies and motivations for joining Miss World – Philippines. She said she would like to “serve the less fortunate specially the elderly.” She goes on talk about her charity work.
“I just recently visited Sinag Kalinga and I find joy in listening to the elderlies there sharing their stories. I never had met my real grandmothers and this gave me an opportunity to experience how it is to be with a grandmother.”
Beauty inside and out! Faye is definitely a winner for us already! She has an inner beauty and kindness that further shines outward making her even more gorgeous on the outside.
Having a pure heart who’s ready to serve the elderly, Faye definitely deserves to be the face of the Philippines in the global competition.
Upon the interview we’ve also discovered that Faye isn’t the only Deveza competing for the title. Her sister Netania will also participate in Miss World Philippines. Knowing this she gave a few words of wisdom for her sister and the other aspirants. “Just believe in yourself. If God is with you, you will never be disappointed,” she said lovingly with a smile.
And the crowd goes wild! A round of applause for our favorite, our sweetheart, our Miss World candidate number 8…Faye Dominique Deveza!
