Miss Universe PH 2022 Celeste Cortesi umaming natakot sa pagbisita sa Marawi, pero…
BINAGO ng pagbisita ni Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Celeste Cortesi sa Marawi City ang kanyang buhay lalo na nang makita niya ang kalagayan ng mga kababayan natin doon.
Sa pamamagitan ng kanyang social media account, ibinahagi ng beauty queen ang naging experience niya isang lugar sa Marawi kasama ang mga taong nasa likod ng Save the Children Philippines.
“My mother is Filipina, but my family had to move to Italy when I was only 6 months and therefore I grew up in Italy. 4 years ago I decided to go to the Philippines,” ang panimulang mensahe ni Celeste sa kanyang IG post.
Aniya, napakarami niyang realizations nang mas makilala niya ang mga kababayan sa Pilipinas at mas lalo pa nang makapunta siya sa Marawi.
“Experiencing life here, joining organizations, and hearing stories really changed my perspective of the world.
“I am blessed by the people around me, especially my family, for always reminding me the importance of sharing my blessings with others and giving more than I am receiving,” pahayag pa ng dalaga.
Bukod sa pagkagiliw sa mga taong nakilala niya sa nasabing probinsya partikular ang mga kabataang residente, na-amaze rin siya sa kultura ng mga tagaroon.
“I am not going to lie, at first, I was scared to go on this adventure and explore Marawi.
“However, since the moment I landed, I felt safe and I was immediately mesmerized by the amazing culture I was in,” sabi pa ni Celeste sa kanyang post.
“Throughout this journey, I was able to see with my own eyes the state where many Filipino children are living right now.
“Many of them still cannot access basic human rights like food, shelter, health, and education,” sabi pa ni Celeste.
Pag-amin pa niya, “It broke my heart to see it but it has reminded me of the importance to do our part to make a change.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. It’s always a pleasure and an honor to be able to learn more about how vast and complex our people and culture are,” pahayag pa niya.
Nagpasalamat naman siya sa Save the Children Philippines dahil sa mga adbokasiya at programang isinusulong nito para masuportahan ang mga mahihirap nating mga kababayan.
“There is truly more work to be done but I would like to thank @savethechildrenph for your projects and programs that help uplift the lives of our countrymen. I hope to work with you more toward creating a better universe for every Filipino,” mensahe ni Celeste.
Matatandaang kinoronahan ang dalaga bilang Miss Universe Philippines 2022 noong April. Nanalo rin siya sa Miss Earth Philippines pageant noong 2018.
“The strength I got from them is indescribable. I’ve worked so hard for this, I’ve prepared.

“And I let God do the rest knowing that whatever is meant for me will never pass me by.
“I’ve grown so much since I came to the Philippines five years ago and I really promised myself that I would only join a pageant when I am ready to take on the responsibility of a crown, and I am now,” ang mensahe noon ni Celeste.
“Yesterday, I received my second chance and I am beyond honored and grateful to be able to represent my country in the Miss Universe stage.
“I hope that with my story I can inspire so many to never give up on their dreams because through hard work, perseverance and faith you can achieve anything you want,” aniya pa.
