MANILA - She is more than just a beauty queen.
On Tuesday, Winwyn Marquez earned the admiration of a lot of netizens when she revealed that she just signed up for a basic citizen’s military training.
Saying she was inspired by Rocco Nacino, she wrote on Instagram: “People are asking me why I want to do this. I simply said because I want to... that's it. No need for long explanations.”
Marquez feels no woman needs “to justify what we want to do, we can just show them what we women CAN do.”
Marquez is the daughter of screen veterans Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno.
In 2017, Marquez was crowned Reina Hispanoamericana, making her the very first Filipina to compete and win in the said beauty pageant.
After that, Marquez went on to fulfill her beauty queen duties and has also continued her career as an actress.
