We have a new queen: Miss Universe Philippines 2024 Chelsea Manalo! True to her name, she emerged as the winner at the prestigious pageant's coronation night held on May 22 at the Mall of Asia Arena. 


In her introduction video for the competition, she asked with her signature dimpled smile: "Is the universe ready for Bulacan?" Well, get ready, universe, because Chelsea is on her way to you! She filmed this video at the Bulacan airport development site, showcasing the province's huge progress. 


During the Q&A portion, 24-year-old Filipino-American Bulakenya was asked, "You are beautiful and confident, how will you use these qualities to empower others?" She said, "As a woman of color, I have always faced challenges in my life. I was told that beauty has standards, actually. But for me, I have listened and always believed in my mother to always believe in yourself, and uphold the values that you have in yourself. Because of this, I am already influencing a lot of you facing me right now as a transformational woman. I have here 52 other delegates with me who have helped me be the woman that I am. Thank you."
