Patricia is currently in Macau aiming for the 5th Miss International crown after Precious Lara Quigaman in 2005. The other Filipina beauties that have been crowned Miss International were Melanie Marquez, Aurora Pijuan and Gemma Cruz.
Patricia has two vantages that will make her stand out in the crowd of stunning beauties around the world: talent and brains. She is a graduate of BA Speech Communication from the University of the Philippines and she can play the piano.
She trained for months at the Dale Carnegie Training and learned 3 languages including Mandarin and Nihonggo in order to communicate well in Macau where the pageant is currently being held.
“Please, please pray for me. I badly need your prayers. I hope I will be your fifth Miss International,” she said. “I’m nervous, but I hope I will be able to make our country proud.”
The coronation night of the 48th Miss International is happening on November 8, 2008, a day before the 8th Miss Earth is crowned.
