Pauline Amelinckx is still grateful and proud for placing second in the recently concluded Miss Supranational 2023, saying it is still a victory.

“All my love to you, Philippines,” said the Boholana beauty queen who took to social media a day after the pageant. Her post accompanied a photo of her waving the Philippine flag.

Miss Ecuador Andrea Aguilera won the title during the pageant held in Poland on Saturday morning (Manila time).

“Ever since I stepped on our national stage it has been my greatest ambition to represent the Philippines internationally. It has been my greatest honor and pleasure to turn that ambition into reality and finally have been able to attach Philippines to my name,” she added.

Amelinckx thanked all those who helped her in her Supra journey.

“This is not a one-woman journey and I have so many people to thank for where I am right now and the victory that we share. (It IS a victory). I am lowkey amazed at myself too. It felt so surreal to go through all the challenges and ups and downs of this journey and still have been able to make it this far and its all the training, hard work, heart work and yes, dedication that made this happen,” she said.

“It takes a great amount of dedication toward your own personal growth and belief in your own worth to see rejection as redirection. But one thing that I [learned] over the course of this journey is that we can tap into our inner strength to grow and bloom where life plants us,” Amelinckx said.
