Legaspi, 24, refused to give details of the break-up. She just thought that things happen for a reason.

“All I can say is that fed na raw s’ya,” said Legaspi during an interview at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 in Paranaque City last Sunday.

Now, Legaspi has a new boyfriend who is a nurse. “Very supportive s’ya sa career ko sa pageant. He told me to get in touch with him in case I need help and that he would just be around.”

Legaspi few to Singapore for the 2017 Miss Lumiere International World pageant. Later, she and the other candidates will fly to Malaysia for the pageant’s finals on November 4.

Born and raised in San Pedro, Laguna, Legaspi said that her parents and elder brother are volunteer preachers.

“I am the daughter of volunteer preachers. And since my parents do not have regular income, I use all my God-given talents to support my family. I stopped my studies so I can focus on supporting them because I  believe that education will always be there if I wanted to go back.

“On the other hand, I can’t have my family forever by my side so I am giving everything that I can offer,” said Legaspi.

Asked if she would like to be a preacher in the future, Legaspi said: “Why not? In the meantime, I am focused on pageants. I also want to finish school.”

Legaspi said that she wants to teach the young  how to be creative in fashion.

“Nowadays, the young ones are always trying to be like the people they see on television – buying branded wear and trying to be somebody else. I want to teach and help them on how to be fashionable not because it is the trend but because they should dress and style themselves like they’re showcasing their whole identity.

“For instance, I am a huge fan of garage sale or “ukay-ukay”. I love it because aside from being practical, I  explore my creativity  challenging myself and going beyond my limits so I could bring out the best in it,” said Legaspi.

“Fashion should be in the sense that it can speak for itself,  how you carry your clothes whether it is costly or cheap,” she added.

Prior to winning the Miss Philippine Islands, Legaspi won 2nd runner-up during Miss Global Philippines 2016, crowned Miss Sophie Paris Philippines 2016  and was named Saniata ti Ilocos Earth 2016. She also became an official candidate of Binibining Pilipinas 2017.
