It is added luster to the Philippines when Trixia Maria Maraña won the title of Miss Asia 2016 last Thursday, August 18 in Kerala, India.
Eighteen candidates competed showcasing their best at the CIAL Convention Center. First runner-up winner is Yauheniya Vasilyeva of Belarus and Second runner-up is India’s own, Ankita Kharat.
According to reports, Trixie, 23, is a bank employee from Dumaguete and is a veteran of different local pageants that have helped her move up to national beauty pageants. She reportedly shared that it was not an easy way to the top but she persevered and is very grateful to the Almighty Father.
With another Filipina winning at the world stage, it is needless to say, Mabuhay ang Lahing Pilipino!
