Miss Janine Tugonon arrived in the country the other day with the First Runner-Up 2012 Miss Universe title from Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. She well accepted the honor and presented it with great pride and humility to the nation upon her arrival. The Philippines once again, regained its mark as a land of world class beautiful women having Janine garnered her title in the recent world beauty pageant.
Miss Tugonon did her best being the representative of the country in that celebrated beauty contest. She came home with much sense of accomplishment and the whole nation welcomed her with pride and honor. Indeed, she is an added feather to the national pride of the Filipino people.
She is a good example and a model of the Filipino youths who always aspire to become the best of what they are. She is a beacon light for everyone to follow on top of hard work and industry as she said, " I achieved it because of hard work."
