Miss Teen Philippines candidate from M'lang says pageant a life-changing experience


M’LANG, Cotabato (June 1) – More than anything else, Ivory Claire Dequilla, the 15 year-old pretty teenager from Barangay Sangat, M’lang says the experience she had by joining the Miss Teen Philippines 2014 pageant was worth all the effort.

Ivory Claire, along with four other bubbly youngsters were the representatives of SOCKKSARGEN in the coveted Miss Teen Philippines search which opened for her new door for  possibilities and opportunities.

At a very young tender age of 15, Ivory made it to the top five of the hundreds of talented girls who competed at the regional finals held in Davao City.

For one thing, the 3rd year high school student of M’lang National High School was a potential beauty for the crown of Miss Teen Philippines 2014.

In her interview with the “Aksiyon Serbisyong Totoo” radio program of the Provincial Government of Cotabato, Ivory Claire recalls all the excitements and thrills of the pageant, both in the regional and national finals.

Prior to her Miss Teen Philippines victory, Nicole was best known for winning one of the coveted slots in the Palmolive Circle of 10 nationwide search last year. She goes to school at St. John’s Wort Montessori School of Antipolo.

Aside from Nicole, four equally formidable candidates also fared very well in the pageant and were rewarded with their own respective titles. They were 1st Runner-Up Chiara Marie Ocampo, Miss Teen Philippines-Luzon Abby Gael Angel, Miss Teen Philippines-Visayas Jeri-Anne Henares and Miss Teen Philippines-Mindanao Victoria Leslie Ingram.

Ten other girls made it to the Top 15 finalists. They were Kimberly Jacqueline Weber, Elizabeth Renee Scheer, Karla Carmina Joven Canlas, Julia Cassandra Casal, Eunice Diane Santiago, Naomi Fujii, Princess Jayme, Bianca Wilhelmina Willemsen, Claire Trinidad and Charisse Claire Lanchinebre.

With her big win and the prize package worth around P2.6 million that goes along with it, Nicole now officially becomes the Department of Education’s Ambassadress for Education. She will also become a member of the Philippine Delegation to the Southeast Asian Youth Program and the National Youth Parliament and will undergo the same training and preparation as the other members of the national team prior to their international travel.

Likewise, Nicole will also get a chance to dialogue and consult with global shapers and leaders in order to help her chart her future path as another woman change maker of her generation.

During the pageant, Nicole also won the People’s Choice award. Other special awardees were Eunice Diane Santiago (Miss Friendship), Abby Gael Angel (Miss SM Girls’ Teens’ Award), Elizabeth Renee Scheer (Miss Teen Jing Monis, Miss Cream Silk and Miss Teen Yakult), Jeri-Anne Henares (Miss Best in Evening Gown), Kimberly Jacqueline Weber (Miss Teen Glamorous), Charisse Claire Lanchinebre (Miss Photogenic) and Ivory Claire Dequilla (Miss Best in National Costume).

Hosted by Rovilson Fernandez, Georgina Wilson and MTP advisory council member Jasmine Curtis-Smith with entertainment provided by singer Bryan Termulo and boy band Voices of Five, Miss Teen Philippines made a glorious return to the national beauty pageant circuit after an absence of seven years.

Many of this year’s contestants, including those who did not make the semifinals or win special awards, impressed their assigned mentors, members of the media and panel of judges with their striking features, confident demeanor and the ability to think on their feet.

During the Q & A portion, all 15 finalists delivered smart answers and almost within the allotted time limit. They also did not lose sight of the fact that Miss Teen Philippines is also about advocating the importance of education through its tag line, “Global Readiness Through Education”.
