Bobon, Northern Samar – A former Miss Northern Samar is among the 35 candidates who will vie in this year’s Miss World Philippines.
Cristina Marie Carpina-Coloma won the Miss Northern Samar title in 2011. Her mother, Susan Carpina-Coloma, is the current municipal administrator.
Her father, Crisanto, is from Pangasinan.
The local beauty queen,26, said that she joined the Miss World-Philippines, to help “inspire” her provincemates and make them proud of her.
At present, Coloma works as entertainment manager Chaos Club at the City of Dreams in Manila.
The winner for this year’s Miss World Philippines will be crowned this Sunday (September 3) at Mall of Asia.
So far, the Philippines has only produced one Miss World winner in Meagan Young back in 2013.
“Tinay,” as Cristina fondly called by her family and close friends, stands at 5’ 8 with vital statistics at 35-24-35.
She is a graduate of AB Communication at the Assumption College and finished her secondary at the St. Scholastica, both in Manila.
Cristina’s mother is seeking help from not only from her province mates but the entire Eastern Visayas and Pangasinan to help her win the crown by supporting her through their text votes. (PETER D. PAREDES)
