Keysi Sayago, Being Political

By now, everyone knows the political and economic turmoil that is plaguing Venezuela. But unlike other Venezuelan beauty queens who opted to be vocal on social media, reigning Miss Venezuela Keysi Sayago chose to join the rally for peace and political change.

But that is not all of it. Aside from joining rallies, she has posted several messages on her Instagram account as well:
I believe in my Venezuela! From what I have learned throughout my life, so my parents taught me about it, because I feel so much love, affection and commitment as Venezuelan and because God gave me this wonderful opportunity to represent it! ❤️🇻🇪 Always with you and for you! (April 6, 2017)
Today in the march for HEALTH where I had the honor to accompany many people dedicated to this guild, patients and any number of students! Remember: It’s not about being White, Red or Blue It’s about that we ALL are YELLOW, BLUE AND RED (May 23, 2017)
Today in support of Human Rights without distinction of sex, nationality or thought because we ALL have a universal right to respect LIFE and to express ourselves without fear in our beloved Venezuela. (May 30, 2017)

It is said that violence, lack/ scarcity of basic goods and an economy that is about to collapse is threatening the future of the oil-rich country. Hence the demand for change is strong and the demand for the current President Nicolas Maduro to step down. Keysi’s political stand is a strong contrast from previous MV winners who clearly stayed away from having a strong political stance. With pageant winners being given celebrity status in her country, it is high time that one uses her voice for the good of her country. Viva Keysi, may you and your country effect change and prosper. It will be difficult but it will be worth it, the Philippines can sympathize because we have been there. Venezuela you have our well wishes and prayers.
