TACLOBAN CITY – The provincial board of Leyte passed a resolution naming Miss Universe Philippines – Leyte as a tourism ambassador and the official candidate of the province in the upcoming Miss Universe Philippines national pageant.
The resolution, authored by board member Carlo Loreto(5th district) was passed by the provincial board after the first Miss Universe Philippines – Leyte titleholder Angel Rose Tambal appeared before the members of the provincial board during their regular session last Tuesday(Jan.16) at the Leyte Provincial Capitol complex in Palo town.
In her message to the members of the provincial board, Tambal appealed to the provincial board to help her in her journey at the national pageant as she encouraged all residents of Leyte to support her, particularly in social media engagement.
“To be the official ambassadress of Leyte will empower me to contribute to the promotion of our rich tourism, cultural diversity, and heritage,” Tambal said.
“I commit my hundred percent best in bringing the name of Leyte to the forefront of the national pageant. I am not here just as a candidate but as a proud Leyteña ready to represent our province with passion,” the beauty queen, who is an engineer by profession, added.
This February 10, Tambal will be leaving for Metro Manila for the sashing of the MUPH 2024 candidates where she will be officially announced by the organization as the official representative of Leyte in the national pageant.
In the region, Leyte province along with Kananga town whose representative is Natasha Jung had already crowned their representatives to the national pageant.
The two beauty queens were crowned after the MUPH organization introduced the accredited partner’s program concept last year wherein they will no longer hold the traditional screening process as candidates but as winners of the local pageant organized by their accredited partners.
Before the declaration of Tambal as the tourism ambassador of Leyte and the official MUPh candidate of the province, she along with two other winners of the local pageant had signed a contract with IM Travel Corporation as the official tourism ambassador of the travel and tour company.
As tourism ambassador, Tambal will help in promoting and marketing local tourism attractions and destinations of the province.
