“It took a while for people to accept me as a representative of [the Philippines]. Usually, the representatives we send to the Miss Universe competition have dark skin. I’m on the fair side, and it took them a while to see if I could be an accurate representative of the Philippines. I went through a lot of experiments. The first year I put on some tanning lotion, and I didn’t win. My second year, I went and tanned [and didn’t win]. And on my third attempt, I didn’t go three shades darker. I won.”
