Pageant Farewell Speech of Murriel Solis Llobrera
As we all know, all good things end well. So, as the 2010 ended, it’s also time to pass her two-year legacy to those who will inherit her endeavor and will.
Here’s a beauty contest speech from Miss San Fabian 2009, Murriel Solis Llobrera.
Leaving, sometimes, is not a matter of choice. Two years have passed since I was crowned as Miss SK San Fabian and, indeed, it wasn’t just a remarkable experience – but also a great responsibility for me. Responsibility to uphold on what is morally upright even many compromises with the wrong; responsibility to live with the highest possible ideals is not as easy as it is in order to serve as an epitome to the people, especially to the young ones. To be studious as a character of a student, to be a good daughter as what is to be expected to anybody of my age; and to follow what our beauty pageant mentor always tell us, “Wear the crown in your heart, and not in your head.”
I am thankful to the people who have become part of my journey as Miss Sk San Fabian. To our Mayor, Hon. Mojamito R. Libunao Jr, municipal councilors, Sangguniang Kabataan, and to our pageant director, Derik Rey Cabuzi and his staff, to Ate Care Romero who have passed the crown to me, to my make-up artist that night, Francisco Usoria Jr., to my Father Ricardo and my Mother Lolita, my Sister Racquel, relatives, friends, and to my fellow candidates during that time, I say thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
To the judges who have looked onto me with so much kindness and trusted me with confidence to give to me the most coveted title that these ladies of our town would be much more than willing to accept it even if it is embedded not of gold but responsibility; to the beautiful people of San Fabian, I say thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It was a joyful journey to serve my town – my home.
And to all, I bid my farewell, so long.
Murriel Solis Llobrera, and will always be, Miss SK San Fabian 2009.
Pageant Farewell Speech of Jeroselle Oliveros Rivera
Last January 18, 2012, I have been blessed to wear this beautiful crown and carry the title of Miss San Fabian. And even up to this moment; the nervousness, excitement and overwhelming happiness that I have felt during that night is still fresh in my memory. It is indeed a very remarkable experience for me. An experience that I will forever treasure in my heart for I have not only won the title Miss San Fabian 2012 but I have also gained new friends in the person of my fellow beauty queens Nikki Marmolejo and Jeannette Greissel.
This beautiful experience also gave me the chance and opportunity to meet new people and participate in different events and gatherings of our beloved town which taught me plenty of things and helped me to become a better person and this what makes my reign as Miss San Fabian 2012 more meaningful.
I would like to express my gratitude to the Chairman of the Pageant, Tita Cynthia Soriano and to our Pageant Director Sir Rey Cabuzi for all their hard work in making Miss San Fabian 2012 a successful event. To our Municipal Mayor Irene Libunao and to the councilors for their outstanding support to make the pageant an awesome experience for all of us.
I could not have done it without our Heavenly Father and the continual love, trust and support of my family. Thank you, and I love you all very much.
Jeroselle Oliveros Rivera, and will always be your Miss San Fabian 2012.
Pageant Farewell Speech of Danielle Magleo Dulay
I cannot even begin to form a thought without first recognizing the glory and graciousness of sweet Jesus, my savior. Thank you so much, Lord, for all that You have been to me and all that You will continue to be.
Actually, I am not really interested in joining such pageant. Yes, I am fond of watching but I have never been imagined myself standing in stage like a beauty queen. It is not my dream. Suddenly, someone knocked on our door offering me to join Miss San Carlos City. Again, I say, I am not interested in such kind of stuff but he is really determined for me to say yes. So I agreed just to shut him up. And, I am confident that I will not be qualified – I will not pass the screening. That is how it starts. Unfortunately (yes, you heard it right, I said unfortunately), I passed the screening and became one of the official candidates for Miss San Carlos City. Even though, pageantry is not my interest, still I was amazed to be one of the beauties. Of course, who would have believed that I would pass it? As you can see, I don’t have the figure, height and poise of a beauty queen. Indeed, miracles do happen.
Everything went great, not just for me but for all of us who joined the pageant. There were 15 of us, all gorgeous and talented; and for me, to win the title is… WOW! It is fantastic. As what Santillan said, “Always get to the stage with humility then surely you will get off with pride.” Winning the crown is not the end of the story, criticisms will follow thereafter. I don’t really want popularity; and being a titleholder, it makes my life harder when there are lots of eyes watching me. I always have to be on my best persona or else I will be misunderstood. Abenilla put this idea very eloquently as she said, “The winner takes it all, including the judgments.”
Life as Miss San Carlos City 2012 has allowed me to acquire a myriad of experiences; overcome my shyness and stage-fright; gain self-fulfillment and confidence; build friendships; and receive care from unexpected people. This pageant is worth-remembering.
Everyone needs help along the way to success. Thank you, mommy (Imelda Dulay), daddy (Arthur Dulay), kuya (Ari Ace Dulay), to the rest of my relatives, my close friends, and my handler (Marga), for being unfailingly supportive of me. I am so blessed to have you in my life, and I love you dearly. Without you, I would not be able to surpass many of the challenges I face. Also, I would like to thank the people who criticized, insulted and degraded me. You gave me strength to come out my shell and prove myself. Thanks for being my inspiration. I so love you, my haters. Yes, this is a democratic country and everyone is entitled for his opinion. If that is what you think, it is really fine with me for as long as you don’t cross the line. Of course, I cannot neglect sending special thanks to the choreographers, Windsor Untalan and Michael Cayabab; and to the rest of the pageant committee under the leadership of our Vice Mayor Joseres Resuello. I hope you will continue organizing such a wonderful show. It is an opportunity for young ladies to prove that they are more than just pretty face, that they’ve got what it takes to be one of a role model. To the judges that night, thank you for appreciating my imperfections. Lastly, to all the San Carlenians, thank you so much!
To the young ladies wishing to be a beauty queen, believe in yourself! Follow your heart and your dreams. As what Cage said, “You are capable and worthy of being and dong anything. You just need the discipline and determination to see it through. It won’t come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don’t let that deter you. Never give up.” Live like you mean it. Believe you can, and you will. Do your best but never ever think that you are the best. Never assume. Never expect.
To the young lady who will be crowned the next Miss San Carlos, congratulations on making it this far! You are now a public figure. All eyes will be on you. Criticisms will be everywhere but never ever waste your time for such crap. Disprove what they think about you. Remember, envious die not once but as often as the envied win applause. Stay patient, kind and understanding, and most importantly, stay humble.
No matter where I go in life, I will always remember this experience and all it has taught. I hope I was able to make you proud. I am honored to have been able to serve as Miss San Carlos City 2012.
