Among the 13 stunning candidates from across the province, Ms. Mary Ann Niones, who represented Camalig, Albay, was hailed as the Ginang Albay KALIPI 1st runner-up.
Acknowledged by Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) Head MS. Edlyn Noble, RSW, during the flag-raising ceremony on Monday, Ms. Niones proudly wore and presented the crown and sash, which she refers to as the fruit of her incredible journey to empower the voices of women with a greater sense of confidence.
Being an advocate of women empowerment by heart and a teacher by profession, this Camaligueña beauty has instilled positive change and promoted social causes, particularly in fostering development and empowerment through community activities and advancing livelihood practices for women and their families for improved socio-economic status.
Camalig Local Chief Executive, Hon. Carlos “Caloy” Irwin G. Baldo Jr. expressed his big congratulations to Ms. Niones for bringing pride to Camalig, highlighting that a Camaligueña is really an epitome of beauty, grace, and resilience.
Ms. Niones’ impressive performance on stage made her shine as she bagged multiple awards like the Darling of the Crowd, Best in Ramp, Best in Production Number, Best in Active Wear, and Miss Body Beautiful during the pageant proper held last March 20, 2024, at Albay Astrodome, Legazpi City, Albay.
