TikToker-turned-beauty queen Ayn Bernos thanked those people who showered her with love during her Miss Universe Philippines journey.
On Twitter, Bernos admitted feeling “so touched” by the messages she has been receiving.
According to Bernos, people were telling her how well she would perform if she had the chance to do the Question & Answer portion of the pageant.
The Miss Universe Philippines Top 16 finalist said that she is not in any way “sad” with the results of the competition.
More than anything, she is grateful for the national pageant, which gave her the platform to tell her story.
“Now I don’t need to be on stage for people to listen. Now people hear my voice. This is just the beginning,” she said.
Recall that after the coronation night last Sept. 30, Ayn declared that her heart is full of “gratitude” for the opportunity she had, but also more importantly, for the people she met along the way.
“It takes a village to raise a beauty queen, and you raised me in two months,” she said. “Thank you for all the lessons, feedback, and effort!!!”
Prior, Ayn also attested how her fellow candidates have tremendously helped her achieved beauty and power.
“Akala ko hashtag lang yung #MUPsisterhood but it’s very real. I feel lucky,” her tweet read.
