Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2018 Michele Gumabao took a break from her very busy schedule to participate in a worthy cause: a book-reading and -giving event organized by the Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (Canvas) in the Vargas Museum at the University of the Philippines Diliman last Friday, July 20.
Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2018 Michele Gumabao took a break from her very busy schedule to participate in a worthy cause: a book-reading and -giving event organized by the Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (Canvas) in the Vargas Museum at the University of the Philippines Diliman last Friday, July 20.

Despite the inclement weather, Gumabao was a ray of sunshine as she read the story “Aklatang Pusa” by Eugene Evasco and mingled with grade school students from various schools in Quezon City.

A booklover herself, Gumabao stressed the importance of reading and education especially to the youth.

“Reading plays an important role in learning and in our education. The youth must understand that education is their ticket to a brighter future and it opens a lot of doors for them,” Gumabao said.



Aside from competing in international pageants, Gumabao and the Binibining Pilipinas queens are also ambassadors of various charities and important causes. Last April, the queens lent their voices for autism awareness.

“Our job as a beauty queen is not just to smile for the cameras and dress up, although all that is really fun. Our job is to be a voice, to be an inspiration to those who need us,” Gumabao said.

The book-reading activity, a partnership between Canvas, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc., and the J. Amado Araneta Foundation, coincides with Canvas’ Tumba-Tumba Children’s Museum of Philippine Art proof-of-concept show which opened last June 19. The exhibit will run until July 27 at the Vargas Museum. For more information, email info@canvas.ph.
