Top Three Favorites for Miss Bohol Sandugo 2013

From the 18 ladies who are competing in the 2013 Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant which will culminate with a grand coronation tonight at the Bohol Cultural Center, here are the Top Three girls who got the highest number of votes from our blog readers who responded to the survey question 

"Who Do You Think Will Be Miss Bohol Sandugo 2013?"

When the poll officially closed last July 17 at 11:30 PM, the following girls emerged with the highest number of votes:

Now, let me make this clear: 

This poll is in no way affiliated with the Bohol Sandugo Foundation, Inc that oversees the staging of the pageant. 

Furthermore, our blog's survey outcome won't in any way affect the results of the pageant.

This was done as our humble way of drumming up interest and generating some publicity not only for the pageant but also for the entire Bohol Sandugo Festival

L-R: Shereen of Catigbian, Fritzie of Guindulman & Meschellane of Panglao


1st Miss Catigbian Shereen Alainah Cano Acuna garnered 39% of the total votes cast 

2nd Miss Guindulman Myra Fritzie Anana Golosino with 26 %

3rd Miss Panglao Meschellane Jade Cajels with 15%

Of course, everyone knows that this is not an accurate indicator as to who will eventually be proclaimed the queen for 2013 but one thing is for sure: 

These ladies have a huge fan base, massive support from their respective municipalities, friends and families

As I was going over the girls' biodata, I found out that these three have at least two things in common:

First, all three are BS Nursing degree holders from Holy Name University and are registered nurses

Second, I do know these three girls quite well. 

Fritzie was in my English 1  and 2 classes and during her freshman year, her entry was chosen as one the Top Ten Winners in a university- wide essay- writing contest.

Meschellane was in my English 2 writing Class and you guessed it, her writing skills & abilities are as impeccable as her spoken English

Shereen on the other hand, wasn't in my English classes but we had worked together in campus activities since she was a very active student leader and mind you, she certainly knew how to juggle her time between studies, hospital duty, community health nursing and attending to her responsibilities as Central Student Gov't and College of Nursing elected student official

Both Shereen and Meschellane had to compete and win in their respective municipalities' beauty search to earn the right to represent their towns in the Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant

Incidentally, I was the emcee in their respective town pageants. 

Shereen won in the 2011 Miss Katigbawan Pageant  while Meschellane was crowned Miss Panglao 2012



You can't help but fall in love with Shereen Acuna. 

She is such a natural charmer who always has a smile for everyone. She was raised in the United Arab Emirates and can speak very fluent Arabic. 

She worked as a Senior Customer Service Specialist for Convergys Corporation in Ayala Avenue, Makati City from Nov 2011 until June 2013. 

She resigned from her job because she wants to pursue her dream of becoming a flight attendant

Speaking in front of crowds comes naturally for Shereen whose knack for talking and facing people has been polished not only from her experiences as a student leader back then but also from her involvement with UNO International Corporation where she was an Official Speaker and Marketing Associate (Medical Team) Aug. 2011- Nov 2011


Myra Fritzie Golosino,23, is easily one of the most beautiful faces in this year's batch. 

This part-time model and nurse is the niece of the 1988 Mutya sa Bohol Elizabeth "Isay" Mumar AƱana who gave Guindulman its first and so far, only Miss Bohol crown. 

Fritzie was the Grand Winner of the 2006 ICM Model Quest, the same contest won by Rich Asuncion in 2004. 

She has also won in scores of singing contests. 

She was in fact short- listed by ABS CBN for its Pinoy Dream Academy back in 2008


L-R: Mayor Nila Montero, Mr. Dodong Alcala, First Lady Pureza Chatto, Gov. Edgar Chatto,
and Bb Universe Joyce Burton flank Miss Panglao Mesh Cajels

Meshellane Real Jade Cajels, 20, recently passed the professional board examinations for nurses. She is one of the tallest girls in this batch.

She almost won the 2009 Miss Tagbilaran crown when she finished as 1st Runner Up to Daisy Jean Quilicot who later became Miss Bohol Sandugo 2009. 

She entered the pageant mainly to enhance her personality and to gain new friends and new experiences

When the family transferred residence in Panglao last year, she was invited by the youth leaders of Danao District to compete for Miss Panglao 2012. 

Here's the link to the 2012 Miss Panglao Pageant Story

She wanted to say no but changed her mind when she learned that the top three winners would get seed money to to launch their chosen advocacy projects as determined by the SK Municipal Federation officials led by dynamic Aya Montero

They are three of the 18 reasons why you should be at the Bohol Cultural Center tonight to witness a grand celebration of beauty and friendship

Good Luck to all the 18 Ladies who are competing for the 2013 Miss Bohol Sandugo crown
