How Cory Quirino Got Her Life Back

It has been a little over 5 months since Cory Quirino has relinquished her position as National Director for Miss World Philippines and she says that she “got her life back”.

She has held the ND position for 6 years in which she has produced: Megan Young- Miss World 2013, Gwendoline Ruais – Miss World 2012 1st Princess, Catriona Gray – Miss World 2016 3rd Princess, Hillarie Parungao, Queenrich Rehman and Valerie Wegmann – who were all semifinalists in their respective years. Cory however laments how the pageant took 40% of her time that ballooned to 100% during the preparations for the nationals. In a report by the Philippine Star, she mulled over whether she wants to be doing it for the next 10 years and this is what she had to say: “I asked myself, ‘How long do you see yourself doing this? Do you see yourself doing this 10 years from now?’ The answer is no.”But she also stresses that the pageant gave her unforgettable memories in her life.
The Philippine Star article also read: History shows that it takes 20 to 30 years to develop a Filipina Miss World. At 64 going on 65 in August, Cory doesn’t want to wait until she’s 80 to see another Filipina wearing the crown after Megan Young, who won in 2013.

Cory has now moved on and is focusing at her core competency, which is healthy living. She now doesn’t need to postpone tapings for her show “Graceful Living” and has more than enough time on her hands to do the things that make her happy. Being liberated from the things that gives her stress is her sure way of keeping healthy and looking young. Giving up the Miss World Philippines has surely given her life back.
