ICYMI, content creator and entrepreneur Ayn Bernos is one of the Top 100 delegates for Miss Universe Philippines 2021. If she wins, she'll be representing the country in the 70th Miss Universe competition, which will be held in Israel.
This is a childhood dream of Ayn's. In an Instagram post, the 26-year-old told fans, "When I was a kid, I would always stay up late to watch major pageants. I looked up to these beauty queens. I have so much respect for them. I admired them so much and I've always wanted to be like them. But at the same time, as a pageant fan, I always knew that I was not qualified." When the Miss Universe Philippines organization removed the minimum height requirement this year, Ayn took that as a sign: She dropped everything and submitted her application.
And it looks like she's ready to put in the work. In her Instagram Stories, Ayn is seen posing next to Rodin Gilbert B. Flores, the founder of beauty camp Kagandahang Flores. She wrote, "Thank you Tito @rodinb.flores for welcoming me."
He posted a photo of them together as well; on his Stories, he wrote, "May the stars of the Universe align" with a hashtag we can't help but love: #AYNangKorona!
Good luck, Ayn!
