MANILA – Michele Gumabao is ready for Miss Globe 2018.
The volleyball star-turned-beauty queen left Manila on Tuesday as the Miss Globe 2018 pre-pageant activities kick off in Albania.
The coronation night will be held at the Amphitheater of Tirana on October 21.
“So excited to meet new people and visit new places, but most importantly, I’m looking forward to showing the whole globe Filipino pride, beauty, and heart! En route to Albania!” Gumabao said in an Instagram post.
“Laban Pilipinas!” she added.
Gumabao’s predecessor, Nelda Ibe, finished first runner-up in last year’s Miss Globe pageant, behind Vietnamese beauty Khanh Ngan.
Ann Colis is the only Filipina who has won the Miss Globe crown. She competed in 2015.
