Some 40 candidates are set to compete in the fifth edition of the international contest which encourages contestants to express their individuality with poise, grace and wits.

“Being the winner of Miss Global, a beauty and cultural pageant, is being a sponsor of goodwill, a trendsetter for leadership, and an ambassador for beauty and cultural diversity,” organizers said.

Although the reign of Miss Global is a year long, this remarkable Queen will travel throughout the world to participate in charitable fundraisers while promoting the beauty, intelligence and charm of women throughout the world.

She will have a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity to gain innumerable contacts, lifelong friendship and endless support from diverse communities that will advance her status beyond imaginable outlooks, the pageant’s website said.

Mary Ann Mungcal, of Pampanga, will represent the Philippines in the international pageant.

Asked to whom she would dedicate her stint to the pageant, Mungcal replied: “Of course, it’s for the Philippines.”

Mungcal said she is excited to meet the other contestants in the pageant and promote to them our country.

“Our country has so much to offer these days. I hope they can visit our country real soon. It still is more fun in the Philippines,” said Mungcal, during press send-off held at a hotel in Makati City on Sunday.

It was only in 2006 when Cambodia fielded its first woman to an international pageant. But the Cambodian government has not consistently sent candidates to beauty pageants abroad unless they have private sponsors.

Officials also said they would only field delegates to beauty contests abroad if the Cambodian economy is strong.
