Take a look at the new Miss World Philippines winning answer:
Q: How do we cope up from an education deficit accumulated due to the pandemic?
“As an advocate of education, I do agree that during the pandemic, we have suffered the most. But the children who [lack access] to education have suffered the greatest. And working [hand-in-hand] with all [foundations] who empower the marginalized Filipinos, I believe [that] by uniting benefactors and encouraging our children, and allowing them to go back to school, especially during this pandemic will make this world a better place because education is the greatest weapon against poverty. Thank you!”MISS WORLD PHILIPPINES 2022, GwendolYne Fourniol,

Ashley Subijano Montenegro from Makati City will try to earn a back-to-back victory for the Philippines in Miss Eco International Pageant after her predecessor, Kathleen Paton, was able to win the environmental pageant earlier this year.
