Broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez, earlier this year, set the online world ablaze after her gorgeous transformation graced the new billboard ad of Belo Medical Group. A number of netizens were truly impressed by her now-smaller face, proving that Korina began the year 2018 strong. Meanwhile, the “Rated K” host trended again on the web when fans noticed her striking resemblance with recently-crowned Miss Multinational Sophia Senoron. They had a chat and took a selfie to document their meeting, and fans couldn’t help but gush over the thought that they could pass as sisters.
Sophia was the Philippines’ bet for the first-ever Miss Multinational pageant, held in India, and she, fortunately, made history by winning the sought-after crown. She competed in Miss World-Philippines and was the youngest among the titleholders of the prestigious competition. In spite of this, she looked at the brighter side of being able to mature at such a young age.
“Although I still have the emotional state of a 17-year-old at that time that’s why after every segment I would always cry after my number was being called and they would have to calm me. But I think in terms of maturity, responsibility and being able to hold my ground, I think that has been with me all throughout because you really need it if you want to pursue something in this industry. I don’t think I would have won or I wouldn’t be in my place right now if I wasn’t responsible and mature.”
Sophia is also a student at San Beda and a varsity debater if she’s not tending to her beauty queen duties. It is one of her skills that brought her to both local and international contests.
“I was just blessed to have that – to be part of a debate society has opened my eyes to new perspectives, to understanding [everyone] but at the same time, being able to voice out your opinions and perspectives as well. And because of that, I [have] become the person that I am today.”
