Following her win as Miss Intercontinental last October 30, the opportunities continue to pour in for Cindy Obeñita. She has made TV appearances, joined her fellow Binibining Pilipinas sisters to light the Christmas tree at Araneta City, had her homecoming in Misamis Oriental and celebrated with Miss Globe 2021 Maureen Montagne during the double homecoming last November 23.
During an interview with the Qrown Philippines, Cindy said that she was overwhelmed by the opportunities being offered to her.
“Like now I am having invitations to guest for this specific TV show and to guest for news programs. I am so happy. Aside from that, I’ll be continuing with my work in the government,” she said.
Cindy, who works as a tourism officer in Misamis Oriental, said that she had a long talk with the Miss Intercontinental Organization about her work in the LGU after they initially asked her to be based abroad.
“I want to make this clear that we had a conversation with [the] Miss Intercontinental Organization and they want me to stay in Spain. And when I said to them that I work for Misamis Oriental LGU, they have been understanding. Because some of the people also in Miss Intercontinental are from the European Union so they know the dynamics of working in the LGU,” she said.
“We will celebrate it with our individual families as we have been away from home. I’ve been away from home I think for 2 years because of Binibini and the delays. But I think it’s rewarding, fruitful. So this Christmas, I really want to physically be with my family because ang dami naming pinagdaanan and talagang matagumpay ang naging resulta so I really would want to celebrate with them. They really deserve such a huge celebration,” she said.
