MANILA – Filipina beauty queen Joanna Eden left Manila on Thursday to represent the country in Miss Supranational.
The Miss Supranational 2016 finals will take place on December 2 in the spa resort city of Krynica Zdroj in Poland.
“Today is finally the day!” Eden wrote in an Instagram post. “In 30 hours I will be landing in Warsaw, Poland to begin all the pageant activities! Asking for your prayers for a safe journey.”
In another post, she wrote: “Will forever be grateful to the Philippines for giving me the opportunity to do this, and to represent our country.”
Stephania Stegman of Paraguay was crowned Miss Supranational last year, also in Poland.
The Philippines’ Mutya Johanna Datul won the pageant in 2013, a first for the country.
