The new set of Mutya ng Pilipinas queens—seven in all—was crowned last Sunday, September 16 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Sharifa Akeel of Sultan Kudarat was crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas Miss Asia Pacific International. She will represent the country in the Miss Asia Pacific International pageant happening in Manila.
Julieane "Aya" Fernandez from Taguig was hailed Mutya ng Pilipinas Miss Tourism International. She will compete in Malaysia this December.
Iloilo’s Kesha Ramachandran was chosen as Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism Queen of the Year International 2018 and she will compete in China.
Meanwhile, Bohol representative Pauline Amelinckx will compete in the Miss Global Beauty Queen competition, which will also happen anytime this year.
This year's pageant coincided with Mutya ng Pilipinas’s 50th year as a beauty pageant, thus the hash tags #Mutya50th #MutyaGold and #MutyangPilipinas2018.
Congratulations to the new queens!
