Miss Norway and Miss Philippines, both at the same time? What’s up, Kirby?
Because I’m half-Filipino, I was allowed to enter Miss Philippines last year, and then I ended up winning it! That still didn’t stop me from entering Miss Norway, which also gave a good outcome. Which left me with two titles to my name!
That’s right, you came in third in the finals for Miss Norway last year. That didn’t hold you back from entering this year, though?
The first time I entered was just for fun. I didn’t expect diddly. And still came out as number three! And the winner that year became a close friend. She encouraged me to try again, and with that extra little bit of experience, I figured I had very little to lose. Which was true!
