Maria Venus Raj: University of the Philippines Graduate!

Education is the ticket to a better future says Miss Universe 2013 3rd runner-up Ariella Arida, and that is exactly what Venus Raj has shown us…

Miss Universe 2010 4th Runner Up, Maria Venus Raj graduated yesterday at the University of the Philippines with a Master’s Degree on Community Development. Dressed in a Barong-Tagalog dress by designer Jot Losa, the former Binibining Pilipinas winner walked the steps of the country’s premier university for her diploma.
“The dusky beauty also posted this message on her Instagram account:
Nagbunga na ang apat na taong pagsisikap. Sa mga kapwa ko magtatapos, isang taos-pusong pagbati sa inyo.”
[The results of four year’s hardwork has come into fruition. To my fellow graduates, a heart-felt congratulations to you all.]

While the Master’s Degree may not be as shiny as a pageant crown, it is far more valuable in weight. This only goes to show that Filipina queens are more than skin-deep. And we salute Venus for showing that education is indeed a ticket to a better future. Proud to call you kapwa Iskolar ng Bayan!
