Who will succeed the Miss World Philippines franchise?
In her official statement released to Inquirer she said –
“It will be assigned to someone else, hopefully a friend or associate whom I already introduced to [the Miss World Organization].” she said.
“To [Miss World Organization President] Julia Morley, I extend my sincerest gratitude. I only have respect and admiration for the Miss World Organization. Inspired by Beauty With a Purpose, we are happy to leave behind a legacy–Miss World’s very own Beauty With a Purpose pediatric cancer ward at the Philippine General Hospital. Having served as license holder of Miss World Philippines for six years has been both memorable and fulfilling.”
After Miss World Philippines, Ms. Cory Quirino would be continuing on the major projects she left.
She would focus on promoting health and wellness using her column and radio program. Currently, she is a member of Rotary International District 3830, and the director of Red Cross Muntinlupa.
