MANILA – Michele Gumabao finished as a Top 15 finalist of Miss Globe 2018 held in Albania on Sunday (Monday in Manila).
The volleyball star-turned-beauty queen also won two special awards: Miss Social Media and Miss Dream Girl.
China’s Yu Yizhou was crowned Miss Globe 2018.
Looking back on her journey as a beauty queen, Gumabao said in an Instagram post: “I’ve learned a lot being here for two weeks! I’ve always known that in life there are wins and there are losses, but God knows what’s best for us. I trust in Him to take me further. I gave my best and I know it was good enough because I had the whole Philippines believing in me!”
“At the end of the day, it is what it is,” she added. “I’m coming home! Volleyball naman ang labanan.”
Ann Colis is the only Filipina who has won the Miss Globe crown. She competed in 2015.
