From three-time UAAP champion to Miss Philippines-Globe, Michele Gumabao has truly made a leap.
Thanks to a consistent showing thoughout the contest, the 25-year-old Gumabao went home with the Bb. Pilipinas Globe tiara.
The current Creamline Cool Smasher shone in the question and answer portion, delivering an astute take on fake news.
“I know that fake news is rampant nowadays, but, in order to fight this, we must first know what we are reporting, know what we are reading, and, at the same time, be accountable for what we say — especially online. And I hope that media always uses their resources to deliver the truth,” said the former DLSU Lady Spiker.
Gumabao will try to become the second Filipina to win the Miss Globe pageant.
The 5-foot-10 spiker also won the Ms. Cream Silk award.
This adds to her growing list of accolades that includes a UAAP Women’s Volleyball Finals MVP plum (Season 75) and a PVL Reinforces Finals MVP trophy (13th season).
