Palawan Daily News - - Front Page - By Kia Jo­hanna Lamo

With daz­zling gowns and pretty faces, 20 lovely can­di­dates shown off their beauty and tal­ents as they com­pete for the ti­tle of the first ever Subaraw Fes­ti­val Queen rep­re­sent­ing their agen­cies, barangays and mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.

One of the high­lights of the event was the long gown com­pe­ti­tion that show­cases Filipino de­signer gowns and the ques­tion and an­swer por­tion that tack­led more about bio­di­ver­sity.

The said pageant was at­tended by the city gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials in­clud­ing the City Mayor Lu­cilo Bay­ron and the coun­cilors.

Sa­hara Wag­ner of Palawan Hope Chris­tian School crowned as the first ever Subaraw Fes­ti­val Queen, ac­cord­ing to Wag­ner, the ti­tle she won was a “bless­ing” and she is ex­cited to turn over the crown to the next Subaraw Fes­ti­val Queen.

“I feel very blessed and over­whelmed to be the first ever Subaraw Fes­ti­val Queen and I am al­ready ex­cited to crown the next one,” said Wag­ner.

Wag­ner said that as a Queen, she wanted to pro­mote sus­tain­able eco-tourism and em­power the com­mu­nity.

“I want to pro­mote my ad­vo­ca­cies on sus­tain­able eco-tourism and com­mu­nity em­pow­er­ment,” she said.

She added that she wanted to be an in­spi­ra­tion, in­flu­enc­ing oth­ers through so­cial me­dia and to bring en­vi­ron­men­tal aware­ness and pro­tec­tion.

“My first move aside from be­ing a role model and an in­spi­ra­tion to oth­ers [is that] I want to in­flu­ence oth­ers. I think the first thing that I will do is post in so­cial me­dia and make them aware how im­por­tant bio­di­ver­sity is and how we could pro­tect it,” she said.
