“Will always be so grateful to the Miss International Organization, for allowing me to pursue my advocacy during my reign and bringing me all over the world. Will always be grateful to those who helped me along the way, My Angels! Laban Pilipinas,” she said.

Just recently, it was announced that Verzosa will portray a deglamorized role in Viva Films’ version of the South Korean sexy drama “The Housemaid.”
In the said film, Verzosa plays Daisy, an au pair contracted to work for a rich, pregnant lady. However, before her boss, Roxanne, can give birth, Daisy needs to tolerate the sexual advancements of Roxanne’s domineering husband that leads to a destructive affair.
