Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - 'tsada! -

CHEERS and warm wel­come greeted the newly tilted Miss Mil­len­nial 2018 first run­ner up Danna Rose So­caoco as she faced the peo­ple of Misamis Ori­en­tal on Mon­day, No­vem­ber 5.

The beauty queen from the mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Magsaysay on Mon­day morn­ing at­tended the flag rais­ing cer­e­mony wherein she was rec­og­nized by Misamis Ori­en­tal Gov­er­nor Yevgeny Emano. She was, then, feted to a mo­tor­cade around Ca­gayan de Oro City.

So­caoco won as the first run­ner up in the Miss Mil­len­nial Philip­pines 2018 pageant held in GMA’s Eat Bu­laga last Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27. She also won the Miss Philip­pines Air­lines Award.

Miss Mil­len­nial Philip­pines is a pageant wherein the can­di­dates have to forgo the use of high heels, tiaras and fancy, el­e­gant dresses and in­stead fo­cus on pro­mot­ing the tourism as­pect of their prov­ince.

Pro­vin­cial Gov­er­nor Bam­bie Emano was de­lighted as his tourism pro­gram was pro­moted through So­caoco.

“When I first met Danna dur­ing the Miss Kuyamis Fes­ti­val and when she worked with us in the Pro­vin­cial Capi­tol, she’s very meek, she’s very hum­ble. And I hope that when she be­comes very pop­u­lar al­ready, she will still re­main hum­ble, and not for­get our prov­ince and our is­land. She’s ma­ture enough to make her own de­ci­sions in life. We will al­ways pray that she will be guided on the road, on the path that she will be tak­ing,” Emano said.

“Let us as­sure her that as an artist, it’s not gonna be a walk in the clouds, there will be chal­lenges. And let us as­sure her that what­ever hap­pens in the fu­ture, may it be good or bad, Misamis Ori­en­tal is at your back and Misamis Ori­en­tal will al­ways be your home,” he added.

So­caoco, for her part, was thank­ful and happy, although she’s still ea­ger to do more to pro­mote the tourism in­dus­try of Misamis Ori­en­tal.

“As a mil­len­nial, [I am] so­cial me­dia savvy, al­ways mi sa so­cial me­dia. Though na first run­ner up ta sa Miss Mil­len­nial, daghan na ang nakaila, pero for me, its still not enough. Gusto ko pa more nga mas maila pa ang Misamis Ori­en­tal,” So­caoco said dur­ing the press con­fer­ence on Mon­day.

“Gami­ton nako ang so­cial me­dia like mag post og some­thing about sa Misamis Ori­en­tal, kung un­say naa pa sa Misamis Ori­en­tal nga wala nako na men­tion sa Eat Bu­laga... I will re­ally use my so­cial me­dia na ma reach ang mga tao para pakita gyud dili lang sa Pilip­inas, kundi sa buong mundo kay ev­ery time mag live ko [sa Face­book], naa gyu’y mga view­ers from other coun­try,” she added.

Asked what her ques­tion was dur­ing the Q and A part of the pageant, So­caoco said that it was about what she would like to have as a grand prize in­stead of money if she ever wins the lot­tery.

Her an­swer, “Yung sinagot ko dun is, kung tataya ako sa lotto and then hindi pera ang grand price, gusto kong mag­ing grand price is mak­i­lala ang Misamis Ori­en­tal hindi lang sa buong Pilip­inas kundi sa buong mundo. Kasi sa atin makikita ang pinaka­ma­li­nis na kara­gatan sa buong Pilip­inas, nasa atin din ang first world class wa­ter park in Min­danao at pan­gatlo is we’re the home of Kuyamis Fes­ti­val, which is the sweet­est va­ri­ety of co­conut which is abun­dant here in Misamis Ori­en­tal.”

“Kasi naisip ko kung mas maram­ing tur­is­tang pupunta rito, kung ki­lala yung Misamis Ori­en­tal, mas maram­ing pupunta dito, mas marami akong matu­tu­lang Misamis­non kasi mas maram­ing busi­ness, yung mga tao na parang nag­dadalawang isip mag busi­ness dahil wala na­man masyadong pumupunta. So kung maram­ing pupunta rito, mas malaki yung grand price na matatang­gap ko kasi mis­mong buong tao sa Misamis Ori­en­tal matu­tu­lun­gan ko. So yun yung nag­ing an­swer ko,” So­caoco added.

Af­ter win­ning first run­ner up in the said pageant, So­caoco, at present, is de­ter­mined to prove her­self and show her skills to MISS MIL­LEN­NIAL Philip­pines 2018 First Run­ner Up Danna Rose So­caoco, with Misamis Ori­en­tal Gov­er­nor Yevgeny Emano, dur­ing the press con­fer­ence on Mon­day, No­vem­ber 5. She thanks the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment for sup­port­ing her jour­ney to the com­pe­ti­tion.
