Bb Pilipinas Intercontinental Karen Gallman Send Off Presscon

Karen Gallman raring to win PH's first Miss Intercontinental crown on home soil

Filipino - Australian Karen Gallman said she is eager to keep the ball rolling for Filipinas beauty queens ans shine the spotlight on the Philippines, where the Miss Intercontinental pageant will be held later this month. 

Gallman, the last to compete among last year's batch of Binibining Pilipinas queens, was given an exclusive send-off party by the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. at the Novotel Manila Araneta Center last Thursday, January 3, just before delegates from other nations start arriving on January 8.

"With Miss Intercontinental being held in my nation, it makes me very proud because not only I'll have my country supporting me there on stage every minute, but because it gives everyone on the outside the cahnce to see our amazing country," Gallman said. 

She also acknowledged the pressure of trying to win the crown, which has so far eluded the Philippines in the pageants 47-year history.

" It's a given when you are representing your country, and in addition, no Filipina has won the crown yet. So, yes a little. But having said that, I don't want to pressure myself but instead try to be as present as much as possible and enjoy the journey," Gallman said.

Last year's bet, Katarina Rodriguez, came close to finally winning the title, but settled for a first runner-up finish, while Mexico's Veronica Salas took home the crown.
