Months after the pageant, former Miss Universe Philippines Maxine Medina has become an inspiration to many especially to girls and gays as well. Maxine stated that even after passing her crown, many still recognize her and call her Miss Philippines anywhere she goes.

 

 

She said, “Doon na ako naniniwala na once a beauty queen, always a beauty queen. Matagal ko nang naipasa ang korona ko, pero they still call me Miss Philippines kahit saan man ako makita.”

“Nakakatuwa yung mga batang beki na lalapit sila sa akin at ginagaya nila ang paglakad ko. As in, nakakaaliw sila! Tapos, may masasalubong kang ibang mga girls din na naging inspiration ka sa buhay nila ngayon.” she added.

 

When asked about her advice for reigning Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters, she said that she couldn’t think of any because Rachel already got the total package.

“She’s everything that a beauty queen should be. She has the height, the beauty. She exudes class and is very articulate. Huwag lang siyang magpa-intimidate sa ibang contestants ng Miss Universe.” Maxine said.
