The country's still pretty much buzzing about the Binibining Pilipinas 2019 grand coronation night, and everyone's also especially curious to learn more about our next representative to Miss Universe, Gazini Ganados.
From what we know, Gazini's a 23-year-old Cebuana and a single child who was mostly raised by her mother, a single mom. Her grandparents, whom she calls "Nanay" and "Tatay," also played a key role in bringing her up to be the lady she is today. This is primarily the reason why her advocacy is for the care of the elderly.
On a recent guesting on morning talk show Magandang Buhay, Gazini gives thanks to her mom who has always been there to support her, especially after the death of her grandparents.
When asked to give a message to her biological father, whom she has never known, Gazini couldn't help but suddenly get emotional and break into tears.
"To my dad or to my Papa [whom] I never met..." she trails off before tears start welling in her eyes. "Hoping to meet you someday and I never had the grudge of how and why I didn't have a dad because everything happens for a reason. I hope to meet you someday."
Gazini was born in Zamboanga del Norte to her Pinay mom and a Palestinian father. She hopes that by winning the pageant, she may have the chance to finally get to meet him.
