Pageant Speech of Angelica Demandante
Before I was crowned as Miss Mangaldan 2011, March of 2011 at the age of 16, I started my training as early as December. Determination and belief that everything will turn out good is my mentor’s way of upbringing me. Who will believe it, I’m lacking in height when I am with my sister candidates May Ervison Ruaro and Shirali Irenai Castillo.
Winning a pageant is not all about the cheers of people. Winning is not all about the waving of hands, not the awarding of sashes and absolutely not the wearing of crown. It is more than that.
To be a beauty queen is not easy as it seems, you have to be the very best in whatever you do. And achieving the crown is not just being the fairest of them all.
It takes time to wait, to be smiled and to be spotlighted. Sometimes the waiting seems to take a little longer. And sometimes it takes forever until we find to ourselves that strength, that it is “us” who determine when will, we shine in God’s Grace.
Before I will pass the crown to my successor, I would like to say “thank you” to people who are in one way or another developed me into who I am and to people who have helped me win the pageant: to my mother, to my make-up artist Jason Solis, to my sponsor and Alma Mater, Mangaldan National High School, to my fellow candidates that night, I must admit, I, too, was nervous and shaking.
I would like also to extend my gratitude to our Pageant Director Jonas Dizon, Choreographer Renee De Vera and Rey Cabuzi, thank you so much for creating such a wonderful and awesome pageant that will linger in one’s memory. To the rest of the pageant committee under the leadership of our mayor and municipal councilors, thank you so much for the Miss Mangaldan 2011 project. To the judges that night, thank you for entrusting me your confidence, and to the people of Mangaldan, I say thank you, thank you, and thank you. It was a joyful journey to serve my town – my home!
And to all, I bid my farewell.
Angelica Quinto Demandante, and will always be, Miss Mangaldan 2011.

Naimbag nga rabii kada kayo amin apo.
Exactly a year ago, I was in the same position as these candidates are now competing for your trust and support. Now I am standing in-front of you with the success of bringing home the title of Mutia Ti La Union 2012. This is not just my success but our success and pride of being Agooenos. I truly thank our Heavenly Father for all the blessings He has showered upon me this past year. It’s truly a blessing & a priceless experience I’ll never forget.
Thank you mom & dad for all the support you have given unto me. I can never thank you enough for all the guidance and teachings you’ve taught me of making me who I am today.
Thank you to my dear Mayora Sandra Y. Eriguel & Congressman Eufranio Eriguel for all your support you’ve given to me including the support you gave me during my Miss Magic 2012 competition. There are no exact words how greatful and thankful I am for all that you’ve done for me. This is one thing I will truly cherish for the rest of my life.
Thank you to my handler, Paul Sanglay, who I consider to be my second mother and my beauty pageant coaches Ate Jlo & Faize, who are like my sisters. It if weren’t for all of you seeing that I have the potential in being in a beauty pageant I wouldn’t be standing here in-front of you. You’ve taught me so much from how to walk, stand, & sit like a beauty queen. You are all a great teachers.
Thank you very much to Direct Joel Macanaya and The Jingleman Production staffs for creating a wonderful show and entertainment to all of us. Truly the joy that you give to everybody is unbeatable.
Thank you very much to my previous sponsor for Miss Agoo 2011, Engineer Carlos Boado of Agoo Contructors Group; may you continue to be more successful in your future projects.
To all my friends whose supported me since my first pageant; a simple greet of good luck and saying you believe in me truly means a lot to me from the bottom of my heart. You are all my inspiration.
To the lucky candidate that will be crowned tonight as the next Ms. Agoo 2012 cherish and enjoy every moment and all future opportunities that will be handed to you. Most of all, always remember to keep your feet on the ground and win or loss always give thanks unto the Lord. Remember being a beauty queen is not about having the crown on your head but wearing it over your heart.
