Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters is back in the country.

She is taking a break from public appearances following her Top 10 finish in the Miss Universe 2017 pageant.

"I know so many people were excited for me, which of course is understandable," she said in an interview with local reporters. "But you know, everything happens for a reason."

Peters added that she is happy for Demi Leigh Nel-Peters of South Africa, who was crowned Miss Universe 2017. 

"Ultimately, I think pageants are really somebody's destiny. There are 92 girls and only one girl could win. It was Demi's destiny. I'm happy for her, I'm excited for her, to watch her journey," she said. 

While no public appearances are scheduled for Peters in the coming days, she is expecting fellow Miss Universe candidates to visit the Philippines soon.
