Bb. Pilipinas International 2014 Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti Competes for Miss International 2014
This time last year, Bea Rose Santiago left the country to make history as the Philippines' fifth Miss International. This year, Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti vies for an even bigger historical feat, as she guns for a back-to-back Miss International victory.
With a killer combination of beauty and brains, Bianca is well positioned to clutch the title. Svelte and statuesque at 5'8, Bianca possesses striking good looks and a charming smile. Bianca's educational background boasts a degree in European Studies at the Ateneo de Manila University. Shuttling back and forth from Brazil to Manila has also given her rich knowledge of language, speaking fluent English, Filipino, Spanish, and Portuguese and recently learning Japanese.
But beyond the impressive background is a golden heart and a noble cause. Prior to joining the Bb Pilipinas, she was a full time technical assistant for Community and Family Relations International, helping rehabilitate the oppressed and marginalized. As a Binibini, she also dedicated time to support non-government organizations like Red Cross, Gawad Kalinga, Operation Smile, Hero Foundation and many others. By representing the Philippines in Miss International, she hopes to reach out to more people and inspire volunteerism among everyday citizens.
“What inspires me the most is the opportunity to be able to impart my message to the world. I want more than anything is to make the world stop and listen,” she shares.
All eyes on a two-peat
Bianca is steadfast in her quest for the crown. Since winning the pageant earlier this year, Bianca wasted no time training for the Miss International. She took courses on personality development and cultural immersion from Dale Carnegie, had Q&A practice sessions from Entrepreneur School of Asia, and focused on doing toning exercises at Gold’s Gym.
She also has no less than the reigning Miss International herself to personally share actual pageant experiences and tips. Bea has always stressed the importance of studying and immersing oneself in the host country’s culture. But above all, Bea’s advice is to “love every moment, really own the crowd and the crown!”
With high expectations on Bianca, she admits feeling pressured but does not feel the need to compare herself to Bea. She shares, “Even if the circumstances were different, the responsibility and pressure I feel to win the crown would be just the same. My dedication and desire to win would be just as much. I definitely have big shoes to fill, but I think our similarities as well as my unique characteristics will help me gain ground in the competition.”
Both Bianca and Bea will be Tokyo-bound on October 25, to do pre-pageant activities on the lead up to the Nov 11 pageant at Grand Prince Hotel, Takanawa Japan.
Miss International is one of the most prestigious beauty pageants in the world. For 53 years, the pageant has culled the most beautiful women internationally to become ‘Ambassadors of Peace and Beauty,’ promoting world peace, goodwill and understanding. The Philippines leads the most titles from an Asian country, with 5 titlists, including Gemma Cruz Araneta (1964), Aurora Pijuan (1970), Melanie Marquez (1979), Precious Lara Quigaman (2005) and Bea Rose Santiago (2013).
