WITH HER beauty, wit, and personality, Niña B. Alba, batch 2010-2011 graduate of Alabel National Science High School stood out among the 13 candidates for the Mutya ng Alabel 2011 in a rain showered pageant last night.
Niña, who represented Barangay Maribulan was also judged as Best in Long Gown and chosen as Ms. PCWorx.
Asked what preparations she did before the pageant, Niña exclaims, “Wala. Normal Lang. (Nothing. I just went on with my normal routines.)”
The First Runner-Up is also an ANSHS alumna, Roxanne B. Tan, who was sponsored by Emerald Salon.
Niña and Roxanne had been classmates in high school and both of them are now studying at the Mindanao State University in General Santos City.
In her speech, Mayor Corazon S. Grafilo challenged the candidates to aim for international beauty tilts, setting Gaydra Rama, who is competing for Miss World Philippines 2011, as an example.
Niña will compete in the Pearl of Sarangani next year and will hopefully join the ranks of fellow ANSHS alumnae, Abigail H. Labaniego and Jessa P. Timon, who were crowned Pearl of Sarangani in 2006 and 2007, respectively.
