At times a person's insecurities and self-doubt may be so overwhelming that they end up letting fear get in the way of acting to solve their problems.

Nobody is perfect, and each day gives another chance to be the best one could be. Let these three beauty queens be inspiration to go beyond what is often thought possible!

Rachel Peters

The country is proud of Rachel Peters' Top 10 finish at the Miss Universe 2017. The beauty queen continued to uphold her advocacy of celebrating one's individuality even after ending her journey at the pageant with grace. To this day, she has served as an inspiration for many girls out there to bring out the best version of themselves.
Michele Gumabao

A volleybelle as well as a beauty queen, Michele Gumabao is able to efficiently juggle her time to meet the demands of both roles.

A true 'action woman,' she will soon compete in the Miss Globe 2018 pageant in Albania, but manages to fit in enough time to train volleyball hopefuls in a camp she started in 2012 in pursuit of her advocacy for sports and wellness. Truly, there is more to this professional athlete than meets the eye.
Pia Wurtzbach

It may have taken a while for Pia Wurtzbach to represent the country in one of the world's prestigious beauty pageants, but all of these just proved the much-coveted crown for the Miss Universe 2016 was meant for her. 

The epitome of a confidently beautiful woman with a heart, the beauty queen advocates for HIV/AIDS awareness, gender equality, and women empowerment, as she extends a helping hand to those living in marginalized areas.
Even after their reign, these beauty queens have continued to live up to their advocacies and make a difference in the world. It's not surprising to know that these catalysts of change have been named Cream Silk's #100UltimateWomen as they are excellent examples of women with beauty, brains, and big hearts – the best weapons for empowering other women to be at their ultimate.
