Cinderella Faye Obeñita hailed as Bb. Intercontinental in Binibining Pilipinas 2021


Cinderella Faye Obeñita was hailed Bb. Intercontinental at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Metro Manila, on July 11, 2021, during the Binibining Pilipinas 2021.


The 25-year-old from Cagayan de Oro City will represent the Philippines at the Miss Intercontinental 2021.


During the opening statement, Cindy said: “As your tourism operations officer who assisted homebound FIlipinos during the pandemic, I realize that no virus could kill our individual and collective dreams. There is no insurmountable fear when we fight for family, community, and country.”


Throughout the top 13 question and answer round, Cindy was asked by Michael Cinco: “How important are luxury items like bags, clothes, and jewelry for a woman, when the national economy is down and struggling?”


Cindy answered: “In life, we always find ourselves in a crossroad of choices. Women always have a choice - whether to prioritize luxury items while we are facing a pandemic, and we also have a choice to embrace the concept of a New Beautiful, which is responsive to the needs of the times, and adaptive to the change of times. I think I would choose to be that woman, the one who understands the problems of the Philippines, the problems of my community, so that we may be able to uplift each other. I would be that kind of woman, to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”


Cinderella Faye Obeñita graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Mass Communication at Liceo de Cagayan University.
