German Mestiza Is Mutya sa Tagbilaran 2014

A 17 year old German mestiza who believes that pageants should transcend race, culture, religion and that they should instead should be a celebration of our uniqueness and individuality was crowned the 2014 Mutya sa Tagbilaran in glittering ceremonies held last night at the Bohol Wisdom Gymnasium. 

L-R: 1st RU Rose S. Razo, Pob. 2, Mutya 2014 Geraldine Topsnik, Dampas, 2nd RU Karen Llorente, Cabawan

I would like to give my profuse compliments and praises to my friend Anna Maris Igpit, GMA 7 host/ talent & 2006 Binibining Pilipinas-World who kept the proceedings lively and exciting.
