Janina San Miguel 17 years old is declared winner of the Binibining Pilipinas-World 2008 pageant despite what could have been a disastrous Question and Answer portion. If you saw that portion from YouTube, you wouldn’t be surprised why it still continuous to be given much hullabaloo yielding half a million viewership as I am writing this message.

What’s amazing about her is her determination to fight her stage fright back and to exit from the situation with grace and yes, lots of confidence. Must be tough being put on the spot and asked by no less than Vivianne Tan.

However, on the other hand, she could have anticipated this although one never knows how much preparation she did for this moment. But I think that only people who have worn her shoes have the right to criticize her. And that makes Ruffa Gutierrez highly qualifed to do so. I agree with Ruffa’s suggestion that Janina should focus on speech lessons as she has seven more months to prepare for the Miss World Pageant.
