|Miss CVRAA 2006: Dumaguete City's Beauty Gonzales, a former ABS CBN's PBB |
Teen Housemate was a runner up
I am a fresh graduate from the University of San Jose – Recoletos with a Degree of Bachelor of Science in Tourism. Inspired by my college professor, I am an environmental advocate and in my own little ways, I help in painting the world green again.
I have been into beauty pageants since 2006, from competing to judging, and recently I have co-hosted some pageants in Bohol.
Based on my personal experience I believe that beauty pageants should be a positive experience in every woman’s life. It should be a character building experience, where we are able to draw lessons that can enrich our personhood.
At present, I am based in Cebu City and is working as a front desk receptionist for one of the hotels here
So here's Idy's tribute to the important people who were with her right from the start
"Throwback before my reign ends, ^_^ Julius Ranises & Nino Janry Cadelina. Two people who believed in me right from the start and were willing to support me morally and financially for the pageant.. Yes, it all started when they encouraged me to join.
I had so many doubts and fear, but still said yes to them. With full support from them and from my family, I made it to the screening and my journey towards the Miss Bohol Sandugo crown officially started. Words will never be enough to express my gratitude to them"
From only two, the number of people who supported me in my Miss Bohol Sandugo journey grew. With the help of Sir Antioco Lloren, Jagnaanons contributed cash which I used during rehearsals as my allowance and for the other expenses.
It was overwhelming and I could not thank them enough. The Jagnaanons who extended their help in my journey were my inspiration. Their support made me feel like a winner already and it motivated me to strive harder to win the crown.
Thank you for always being there for me, for pushing me to join beauty pageants, literally pushing me to join, lol! I am where I am now because of you.. Had you not pushed me (literally) maybe I would still be hiding inside my shell until now.. You are the best stage yaya, i mean stage ate, I love you sis..Good Luck in Your Future Endeavors Ms Idy Casenas Cagas!
