(UPDATED) Miss World Philippines 2021 Tracy Maureen Perez announced that her Beauty with a Purpose project Para Kay Nanay: A Single Mother’s Journey to Love was chosen as one of the six projects under the Miss World’s Beauty with a Purpose category.
On Instagram stories, Tracy recalled that moment, saying she’s happy single moms will get a chance again. As one of the chosen six, the Miss World Organization will come to the Philippines and fund the project in Cebu.
In another update, Tracy gave more details about the win.
“Philippines!! We made it to the top 5 of the BWAP final round. Miss World Organization will also be coming to the Philippines to fund my project. Mommy Chona, this is for you and to all the solo parents out there. This was all just a dream and now it’s finally happening. Thank you everyone for the continuous support!! A few more days before the coronation night, lalaban tayo!! “
During the head-to-head challenge wherein they spoke about their projects, Tracy talked about advocating for single moms and how her late mom Chona inspired her. She also said that the project allows single moms another chance to have a purpose.
“It gives them hope that they can still go out there and learn new things and build a good life for their families. Because that’s what I want for them, that’s what they deserve, and that’s what I would have wanted for my mom if she was still here. That is my commitment, that is my dream.”
Tracy’s win secures her in the Top 30 of the Miss World pageant with its finals night happening live from Puerto Rico on Friday, December 17, Manila time.
