Recalling a Boholana's Victory as Miss USJ-R Cebu

It has been six years since my niece, Nadia Claire Orimaco Urbino, only child of my cousin Penny Orimaco, competed in Miss Cebu 2009. 

Although she didn’t make the Top Five, being selected as one of the official candidates along with Rizzini Alexis Gomez and Kris Tiffany Janson for the Silver Anniversary edition of Miss Cebu was already quite an achievement. 

Kris eventually won the Miss Cebu 2009 crown and went on to win Bb Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 while Rizzini is the ill- fated Miss Tourism International 2012 queen who recently succumbed to complications from lung cancer.

Before competing in Miss Cebu, she was already Miss USJR.  Just like Your Roving Eye, Nadia is also a graduate from Holy Name University High School in Tagbilaran City, Bohol. She is a batchmate of Miss Makati 2007 Mayumi Lugod.

Nadia is presently based in Pnom Penh, Cambodia and teaches at The The British Int. School of Phnom Pehn, Cambodia
