Limgas na Pangasinan 2019 Gwendoline Meliz Soriano enjoins Pangasinenses in her bid to win the first Miss Millennial Philippines crown of the province.
Soriano, a resident of Labrador town, was presented publicly on September 9 during the regular flag raising ceremony of the provincial government held at the Sison Auditorium, where she sought the support of her provincemates on her drive to win the Miss Millennial Phillipines 2019, a featured segment of GMA-7’s Eat Bulaga.
The proud Pangasinan maiden, solicits support from Pangasinenses all over the world to follow her Miss Millennial Philippines journey in the following social media accounts:
· Miss Millennial Pangasinan 2019 (facebook)
· @mmphpangasinan2019 (instagram)
· @mmphpang2019 (twitter)
“Every share, like or heart in our weekly challenges counts to gauge social media popularity,” Soriano said.
Asked in an interview how she maximizes the Miss Millennial Philippines search to promote her home province, Soriano said that aside from showcasing the natural and manmade wonders, culture and heritage, and famous delicacies of Pangasinan, she takes pride in giving emphasis to the distinct values and character traits of her fellow Pangasinenses.
“We are not ‘pangalatok.’ This term is derogatory for us. We are Pangasinenses or Pangasinan,” Soriano clarified.
“Pangasinan is a term used to denote the place, the people, and the language spoken,” she added.
It can be recalled that Pangasinan’s (first) candidate to the debut edition of Miss Millennial Philippines held in 2017 was Limgas na Pangasinan 2017 Annie Uson, who finished as a top 10 finalist in said search.
Both Uson and Soriano are from Labrador town.
