I have been an avid pageant fan and since it's BB Pilipinas season once again , I will once more give you my predictions but I will do that in another article. As for today, I would like to feature one candidate that I thought stood out among the rest of the candidates. Not only because of her color but how she carried herself in all the activities and how she can capture the heart of every person she meets. She is candidate no 22 . Apriel Smith. Though, we are not acquainted, I have seen her in person a couple of times. She is quite a celebrity here in Cebu. She is mostly in the runway and every time I see her, I always tell myself. I hope she joins BB Pilipinas. And who knew? S he is in in the competition and I can't help but be excited for her. She is very mesmerizing in person and she appeals very nicely to people.
She is the AA Barbie Doll of Cebu. Great stage presence , very classy catwalk and has the right amount of confidence to take her to places.
One of the things that really captured my attention is how she carried herself during the National Costume Presentation. The way she lifted the image of Sto. Nino showed how elegant and graceful she is. Instead of Parading herself at the center , she chose to put the highlight on to the image that she carried and gave everyone a very charming smile . Quite a Queenly gesture if you'd ask me.
She is quite a performer too . Just by looking at her photos below, you can tell that she is the competitive type. She will surely give everyone a run for their money. I just wish that the stars will align for her come April . 17, 2016 at the Smart Araneta center.
So by now, you probably realize that she is my bet for the top plum. I know that some are not quite convinced of her beauty . Others might say that we are not ready yet for a black Filipina but we will never really know until we give it a chance. While others might say she looks too common in the international scene , I know Apriel can stand out effortlessly.
