After competing in pageants for years, Maureen Montagne ends her journey this year with the Miss Globe crown, a perfect happy ending to all the years of sacrifices.
Speaking to the Qrown Philippines last November 23, Maureen said: “It’s been such as long journey. From Mutya ng Pilipinas to Binibini, this has been so much hard work that went behind the scenes. It’s so fulfilling. It feels good, everything happens for a reason.”
Maureen credits her family most especially her mom Annabelle, who has pushed her years back to pursue pageantry and has been her biggest supporter in the journey. She said that she is excited to fly back for the Christmas holidays to spend time with them in the US.
With her win and fellow Binibini Cindy Obeñita’s Miss Intercontinental win, the Philippines is hoping to make it a 3-crown victory with Samantha Panlilio competing for the country’s first Miss Grand International crown.
“I think our chances are strong. She is a good communicator, her pasarela is strong, and her body is amazing. So why not?” Maureen said.
Although Maureen is currently taking a short break before doing more of her Miss Globe and Binibini duties, she mentioned that she’s looking forward to the plans the organizations have for her. Among the countries, she is set to visit are Greece, the Dominican Republic, and Canada to crown representatives of the Miss Globe pageant. She is also set to work more on her charity work focusing on hunger.
