Twenty-four-year-old Chanel Olive Thomas from San Antonio, Nueva Ecija was crowned Miss Philippines Air 2015 on Sunday night.

Actress-politician Cristina Romualdez asked Thomas during the question-and-answer portion, "What important lesson could young girls like you learn from watching beauty pageants?"

She answered: "Actually, for me, this is my first ever pageant that I've ever done in my life. Never before have I thought I'll ever join one, but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and do something that I thought I'll grow in. I really learned so much, I made so many new friends, so many girls from different walks of life, because I just moved from Australia, and I had the pleasure to join so many girls who I actually related to and I made a sisterhood with. So I really believe, always believe in yourself, don't let self-esteem hold you back, because you are worthy of a beautiful life."

Thomas is a former girlfriend of "Pasion de Amor" actor Jake Cuenca.
