Kylie Verzosa’s Winning Speech in Miss International 2016

The sixth Filipina Miss International title was won by a mental health advocate and a nursery school teacher, Kylie Verzosa in  October 27, 2016.  Her winning Miss International speech is regarded as one of the benchmarks in terms of content, delivery and pace.

"Three things come to mind when I think of Miss International: culture, education, and international understanding. These 3 work together to make the brand of the Miss International beauty pageant relevant to the global community and to our time.

"If I become Miss International 2016, I will devote myself to cultural understanding and international understanding because I believe that it is by developing in each of us sensitivity to other cultures that we expand our horizons, tolerate difference, and appreciate diversity.
