1 Mar – 19-year-old Philippine beauty Sophia Senoron was recently named the first ever winner of the Miss Multinational pageant, which was held in India recently.
The news was announced by Arnold Vegafria, the national director for Miss World Philippines and Miss Multinational, who wrote on Instagram, "Our very own [Sophia Senoron] is the first winner of MISS MULTINATIONAL 2017 - 2018! Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!"
Vegafria was also given the opportunity to crown Senoron herself, saying that the organiser has decided that the national director of the winner should crown their own candidate.
On the other hand, Germany's Saskia Kuban became the first runner-up, while Shefali Sharma from India won third place.
Senoron is the third Pinay beauty queen to win this year, following Teresita "Wyn" Marquez (Reina Hispanoamericana), and Karen Ibasco (Miss Earth 2017).
