A college student makes history as the country’s first deaf beauty queen.

17-year-old Princess Pura was crowned among the top three winners in the ‘Queen of the Philippines’ in Subic, Zambales.

Being deaf since birth, the Hotel and Restaurant Management student says winning a beauty pageant is a dream come true.

Princess will represent the country in the ‘Face of Beauty International’ competition in China this September.

She says she wants to be an inspiration to other disabled women to pursue their ambitions. Full video article below:

Congratulations, Princess Pura!! Your achievement is the first of its kind in the Philippine Deaf community. This blogger salutes your success!!! You are truly blessed. 🙂

 


  1. Embarrassing! Please Princess Pura, why? You should have look squarely to interviewer’s eyes, not at the interpreter. He is just interpreting for them, not as a speaker. She is speaker. Come on.
