Ms. BBTini 2017
By: Daphne De Leon
Ms. BBTini, a title sought after by the Instructors of BBTOGi. Just like the other beauty contest, Ms. BBTini is not simply a beauty competition. It requires the candidates to be bright and talented. Each one is judged based on how she carries herself confidently and how witty the answer is to the question.
For many years since this contest was launched, I not only supported but I allowed myself to be part of the contest.
In 2015, I received an award for BEST IN TALENT. Although I did not bag the best award, I was very happy.
In 2016, I again bagged one of the best titles, BEST IN SWIMWEAR. I was happy alright, but my motivation has already run low; convinced that I no longer would join the contest in the following year.
But when the Team Building 2017 was already undergoing program arrangements, I was again approached to join. To this, my answer was a big NO; I was already content to simply head one of the committees to help the organizers. But here comes our Managing Director, JVK; she would not accept NO for an answer. She pushed me into joining again, who knows, she says, I could probably make it this year.
Before the competition, I conditioned myself to just enjoy the program and have fun. It will be embarrassing to lose again as it would be my third time, but I had no way out. So I should give my best shot and make sure that those who’d watch would enjoy.
During the Q & A portion, I focused myself into giving a good, spontaneous answer and I did as if it was the last performance of my life. Oh my! The claps and yells got me inspired. The audience did react to my answer positively!
The moment of truth came and I was already feeling dreadful. But lo and behold, was it really my name that got called? Yes, indeed, I made it!! Finally, the title MS. BBTini 2017 is now mine!
This experience has taught me a lot. I learned that anything is possible if you work hard for it. We should not underestimate what we are capable of doing. Likewise, we must not agree to settle for anything less. In other words, dream big! Share your talent and use it to inspire people.
This is my story, my journey as this year’s Ms. BBTini 2017.
