Miss Philippines Delivers Her Winning Speech

This is the winning speech of Miss Philippines Bea Rose Santiago:
"The whole world saw how my country the Philippines suffered. The agony of my people was felt. But, one by one, country to country came to help. I would like to thank all the nations that helped my country. In our darkest hours you have opened my eyes and my heart on how important it is if we all just support each other. If I become Miss International, I will uphold international camaraderie to sustain the spirit for sympathy and to continually share the message of hope. I believe now that whatever calamity may come to us, as so long as we have each other, there will be hope."
