PHILIPPINES – AirAsia Philippines, the official airline partner of the Miss Universe Philippines sends its warmest regards to Miss Universe Philippines Beatrice Luigi Gomez as she departs for Eilat, Israel for the 70th Miss Universe pageant.
Bea, who recently paid a visit to RedPoint, Home of the Filipino Allstars, vowed to do her best to win the 5th crown for the Philippines.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla and CFO Ray Berja welcomed Bea and shared with the 26-year old Cebuana how the company can best support her charitable advocacies under its Corporate Social Responsibility & Sustainability umbrella program, alwaysREDy: anytime, anywhere. Bea is an active children’s rights and welfare advocate. Tourism and environmental protection campaigns are also some of the advocacies very close to her heart.
“I mainly focused on the welfare of children. And I believe that the tourism industry has a big role to play in the welfare of the children because, you know, their parents could be beneficiaries or workers of the tourism industry who have been severely affected by the global health crisis.. A lot of children have also been suffering. So it’s very important that we prioritize our tourism so that these children will also get their opportunity,” Bea said.
Bea’s co-titler Ms. Universe Charity Victoria Velasquez Vincent also promised to support causes that would uplift the lives of the children while promoting heritage conservation. She also expressed enthusiasm in going the extra mile for a smile with AirAsia and it’s partner Operation Smile Philippines.
AirAsia Philippines Spokesperson Steve Dailisan said, “Bea, the AirAsia family is with you in praying that you arrive safely in Israel, and that you make good memories there with the other empowered women of your league. The Allstars will be cheering you on as you proudly wear the Philippine sash in every stage of the competition. Have fun and enjoy the moment.”
“We also look forward to working with Bea and Victoria in the months to come. We know that more than beauty and brains, our Miss Universe title holders also have a big heart to help other people, especially the underprivileged,” Dailisan added.
Bea, a model and Philippine Navy Reserve Seargeant made history as the first openly bisexual woman who was crowned Miss Universe Philippines.
AirAsia recently awarded the Cebuana beauty queen unlimited roundtrip tickets for two to all AirAsia destinations to support her causes during her reign as Miss Universe Philippines 2021.
