Beauty pageants in the recent times evolved into something different from what previous pageants showcased. Candidates are not the typical girls where they are just beautiful and intelligent but with a passion to serve other people. Pauline Deveraturda is one of the examples of the girls who possesses these qualities. Never underestimate this young lady because she graduated as Cum Laude at the La Consolacion University Philippines with a degree in Psychology and is now working as a Human Resource Management in the Department of Health.
Miss World is an arena where girls are very interested into not only because it is a competition of beauty but also of its mission and vision. She joined Miss World Philippines because of the idea that she really looked up to what the pageant and their advocacy is, “Beauty with a Purpose”. That is the thing that made her proud for making it as one of those girls and to think that she belongs for the year 2018.
Advancing Empowerment Through Academics or AETA is her advocacy for the pageant this year. She chose this advocacy because of her roots as an Aeta and she was motivated by Norman King, who is the first Aeta graduate from the University of the Philippines, to promote formal education to the Aeta community and for the young aetas to pursue education.
