From Princess to Queen, Cindy Obeñita, the newly crowned Miss Intercontinental


Cinderella Faye Obeñita was crowned Miss Intercontinental 2021 in Sharm El-Sheik, Egypt, on October 29, 2021 (early Saturday in the Philippines).


The 25-year-old from Cagayan de Oro graduated magna cum laude from Liceo de Cagayan University with a degree in Mass Communication.


Cindy was asked during the question and answer: As an international ambassador, do you believe that speaking English is important for Miss Intercontinental? Why or why not?


Cindy answered: "As an ambassador, I don't think that speaking a specific language is very important here in Miss Intercontinental or any pageant at all. As long as that woman is a woman of power and grace, commitment, and intelligence, No matter what language she speaks, and that woman is actually a woman of style and substance; then she can win any pageant or any endeavor she is into.


Also, it's very important, I have learned actually here in Miss Intercontinental, that a woman should possess power of substance, And I believe I am that woman because that is the essence of a modern-day Miss Intercontinental -- that we are living in a world that's very hard to survive. And as a Miss Intercontinental, I would like to be that source of hope, that source of inspiration on the true power of beauty, and that is felt on the kindness of our hearts and definitely on the sincerity of our loving actions. Shukran, Sharm El Sheikh!"


Cindy Obeñita truly deserves to be crowned Miss Intercontinental as she is a force to be reckoned with throughout the pageant.
