Every year, the Sinulog Festival Committee never fails to wow Cebuanos with an array of beautiful and smart Ms Cebu contestants. After the many pictorials, TV guestings, interviews, rehearsals, and other pre-pageant events, Ms Cebu 2014 finally named its latest victor through a grand coronation night last January 15 in Waterfront Cebu City Hotel's Pacific Grand Ballroom.
Out of 12 candidates, Cheriemel Diane Muego emerged as the best Cebuana for this year's Ms Cebu competition. Muego is a 19-year-old Political Science student from University of the Philippines Cebu and a native of Ormoc City. Her winning answer during the final Q&A (what they will do to inspire Yolanda survivors) was “I believe that I have already started even if I’m not yet Miss Cebu. In my own way, I have contributed in sparking volunteerism. By working together, we can inspire others and give hope and inspire people to rise again”.
Muego's 1st runner-up was Eva Psychee Patalinghug who was also the crowd favorite and won 4 minor awards namely Miss Friendship, Miss Photogenic, Kapamilya Star of the Night, and Best in Evening Gown. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th runner-ups, on the other hand, were Hannah Marie Gore, Grace Anne Marie Yap, and Crystal Star Aberasturi, respectively.
Congratulations to all the participants, and to the Ms Cebu 2014, you indeed deserve the win! Looking forward to the next Ms Cebu pageant. =)
