MANILA, Philippines – The top 15 candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2019 shared their thoughts on various issues as they participated in the pageant’s Q&A segment.

In what may be the most nerve-wracking part of the pageant, the women answered questions on topics ranging from press freedom to mental health.

Here’s how each of the candidates answered:


Joahnna Carla Saad, Dumaguete City

James Reid: In this day and age of gender equality can you say that Filipino men still practice chivalry or courtesy towards women? Why or why not?

Answer: I have a trust for Filipino people, that we Filipinos, women and men, are able to show the capabilities of a heart of a Filipino, that we are able to show to the people that we are not just Filipinos with ordinary capabilities, but we are Filipinos with extraordinary capabilities

Gazini Christiana Ganados, Talisay, Cebu

Bobby Barreiro: If you win the crown tonight, what can you do to get more women in the workplace?

Answer: If I win the crown tonight, what I will do is to promote my advocacy. My advocacy is for us women to fight for our rights and for the elderly care and for us to be able to know that someone is loving and someone is pushing us to whatever ambitions that we have. We will be able to rise from our decisions to whatever dreams that we have, goals that we have, and we will achieve it because of those values, those wisdoms that they gave us. Thank you.

Resham Ramirez Saeed, Maguindanao

Brian Cu: Recently migration and migrating became the most searched words on Google. What would you like to say to those disheartened Filipinos who seem to have lost hope for our country?

Answer: I would say that history has shown us that Filipinos are very good at remaining steadfast despite any hardships or any violent shown towards us. We do not stand for discrimination and I would say that if you’ve lost your way, turn back to God and walk towards him. Thank you.

Maria Andrea “Aya” Abesamis, Pasig

Nadine Lustre: What advice would you give a 16 year old girl for her to become more socially aware and become an empowered young lady?

Answer: What advice that I could give to a 16 year old girl is that for her to read more and to also understand life because in the future if you do not read more or understand life, you wouldn’t know what’s really happening and that would be a hard thing for you, and that’s it. Thank you.

Emma Mary Tiglao, Pampanga

Giorgio Guglielmino: Is free press important in a democratic society?

Answer: Yes it’s important because with the press we are able to be aware not only in our country Philippines but also around the world of what’s happening and as a press we should be responsible, and also as a citizen we should be responsible on the credible sites that we should look for. Thank you.

Samantha Ashley Lo, Cebu City

Christian Standhardinger: What is your best non-physical asset and why do you say so?

Answer: I believe the best non-physical asset could be your spirit. I believe that when we have a strong spirit, a strong aura, we shine from within, we spread it. It’s a beautiful butterfly effect and I continue to encourage everyone to have positivity and show love. There’s no need for negativity, there’s nothing productive about it. Let’s continue to shine and show love [inaudible] thank you.

Bea Patricia Magtanong, Bataan

Reinerio Borja: If you could have the opportunity to meet somebody globally influential, who would that be and why?

I really idolize Angelina Jolie because she was blessed with such a thriving career in Hollywood but then as a woman she was able to use that influence, that voice, and that audience, to advocate for the causes that she believes in, like world hunger with the UN, and someday, if I am given the chance, I would like to be just like her. Thank you.
