Graduated magna cum laude and architecture board topnotcher wins Bb. Pilipinas Universe Title

A University of the Philippines (UP) magna cum laude who finished B.S. Architecture and topped the June 2010 Architect Licensure Exam Shamcey Supsup was crowned as our 2011 Bb. Pilipinas Ms. Universe at the Araneta Coliseum on Sunday evening.

Stands 5’7″ from General Santos City, Supsup beat 14 other semi-finalists after answering the question, “What worthy cause do you identify yourself with and why?”

Her answer was: “I think the one worthy cause I can identify myself with is valuing education. Because I believe education is something that cannot be taken away from you. You can have money, you can have fame, but in the end, it can be taken from you. But education will always be there to help you.”

Supsup will represent the country in the Miss Universe contest to be held in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Meanwhile, Necio, who won as first runner-up in 2010 Binibining Pilipinas, will be representing the Philippines in the Miss International competition to be held in Chengdu, China this year and Pasig City resident Isabella Manjon was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Tourism. Best in Swimsuit was won by Queenierich Rehman, while Luzelle Felipe took the Best in Long gown title.

Also named during the awarding ceremonies held at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City were Janine Tugonon, 1st runner-up, and Mary Jean Lastimosa, 2nd runner-up.
