Miss Philippines Wins Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2015
Congratulations to Leren Mae Bautista for winning the Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2015 on December 31,2015 at the Putrajaya Marriot Hotel, Grand Ballroom in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The Philippines has totally proven its supreme reign at beauty pageant competitions when it once again bagged another award before the year 2015 ended. Fresh from our win of Miss Universe courtesy of the lovely Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, we again revel in delight hearing about another win of our fellow Filipino.
The candidate from Laguna, Philippines was already another favorite even before the top 12 finalists were announced. Belarus, Bolivia, China, Uganda, Malaysia, Portugal, Lithuania, Iceland, Dominican Republic, Mongolia, India and the Philippines made it to the list.
The Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International (formerly known as Queen of the Year International) is unique beauty pageant that showcases the gems of the respective participating nation. The first ever Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International was staged in Kuala Lumpur, the City of Lights in 1993.
Like a diamond, the pageant unfolds the brilliance and magnificence of its distinctiveness and grace of a perfect woman. Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International is an international world class event that honours the exceptional women of today, women who gracefully uphold the epitome of beauty, poise, good moral character and personality.
Globally recognized as a premier international pageant, the Miss Tourism International world final is the only New Year’s Eve pageant that plays host to more than 30 international beauty queens from around the world. The significance of the title cannot be belittled as it elevates the whole premise of beauty pageants to a higher level, directing international attention to the role of women in today’s society.
This award makes 3 crowns already for the Philippines which previously won the title back in 1996 and 1999.
Other winners are Miss Iceland as Miss Tourism Cosmopolitan International, Miss Lithuania as Miss Tourism Global International and Miss Uganda as Miss Tourism Metropolitan International.
Leren bested 29 other aspirants to win as Mutya ng Pilipinas-Asia Pacific International during the coronation ceremonies at Resorts World Manila’s Newport Performing Arts Theater in Pasay City. She was born and raised in the Special Science and Nature City of the Philippines: Los Baños, Laguna.
