Miss Universe 2021 Harnaaz Sandhu arrived in the Philippines on April 24 where she held court at the Platinum Skies Hangar Domestic Airport Compound. Hosting the welcome were Narvacan City Mayor, Hon. Chavit Singson and Architect Richelle Singson-Michael, LCS Group Vice Chairperson, Ako Ilokano Ako Partylist first nominee, and Host Committee Chairperson of the 65th Miss Universe that took place here in the Philippines.
Both Mayor Singson and Architect Singson-Michael have tirelessly continued to represent the country in the organization to make Miss Universe one of the most anticipated and inspired events in the country.
Architect Singson-Michael shared the delightful moments she had with the reigning Miss Universe, “We are more than happy to welcome Harnaaz. We had the opportunity to learn from each other as we tackled topics she wishes to address throughout her reign. Like a true beauty queen, she is confident yet humble, with the influence to make a positive change on a global scale.”
Mayor Singson also expressed his exuberance with Harnaaz’s visit, “Having her (Sandhu) visit our country and share her goals with us Filipinos is an inspiration. It’s also an opportunity for us to learn about her plans and advocacies as Miss Universe and extend to her all the help to promote her causes.”
“The Philippines has always been one of my dream destinations because of its stunning beauty, but more importantly, I feel that it is a country full of opportunities for me to contribute as Miss Universe.” shares Harnaaz when asked how she felt when she first arrived in the country. “I’m excited to work with people who share my passion for putting advocacy into action.”
Menstrual Equity is one of Harnaaz’s advocacies, where she mentioned, “This is a topic near and dear to my heart because I grew up watching my mother deal with this issue. So now that I’m able to address this problem globally, I’m going to devote my time and energy to help young girls and women overcome this challenge. I firmly believe that when women support other women, incredible things happen,” she continued.
Her arrival ramped up excitement among Filipino pageant fans who were looking forward to see her in the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 Coronation that happened last night at the Mall of Arena.
Harnaaz’s followers, on the other hand, are interested as to which destinations in the country she would visit.
