The Miss World Philpomes Organization (MWPO) recently hosted a grand official send-off at the luxurious Hotel in Quezon City last Saturday, March 5, for three of its reigning queens who will soon be competing in their respective global pageants within the next few weeks On top of the list is reigning Miss World Philippines 2021 Tracy Maureen Perez, who flies back to San Juan, Puerto Rico in the hope of continuing her winning streak on the coronation night of the 70th edition of the Miss World 2021 pageant scheduled on March 16 (March 17, 8:00 am Manila time). it will be remembered that the Miss World Organization issued its last-minute decision to reschedule the pageant just a few hours before the December 16 coronation night, due to the alarming and unforeseen surge of Covid-19 cases in Puerto Rico at that time. To keen pageant watchers, the decision seemed anti-climactic for Tracy, who was then clearly ahead of her game-having just assured herself of a Top 40 spot after winning the Head-to-Head and Beauty With A Purpose challenges. Nonetheless, the Cebuana beauty has no regrets about the decision. She rationalizes, “it could be frustrating for some, but I tried my best to compose and calm myself, ‘coz it’s something I couldn’t control. I’ll just take it as a blessing that I’ll have more time: to prepare.” Aside from Tracy, Miss Eco Philippines 2021 Kathleen Paton hies off to Cairo, Egypt on March 6 to compete in the 7th edition of the Miss Eco International 2021 pageant, to be held from March 6-18, with the coronation night slated for March 16 (March 17, 12:30 a.m. Manila time). For her part, Miss Environment Philippines 2021 Michelle Arceo feels more than ready to compete in the 1st edition of the Miss Environment International pageant scheduled from March 21-April 2 in Mumbai, India, with pageant proper scheduled on April 2, 5:00 pm IST/April 2,7:30pm Manila time.
