Shamcey Supsup-Lee expressed her appreciation to all those who continue to support the Miss Universe Philippines pageant.
Amid the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic to the pageant, Shamcey remains optimistic that everything will push through smoothly.
Shamcey was named the national director of the Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) organization just last December. The MUP replaced the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. and Araneta Group that used to handle the Miss Universe franchise in the Philippines for more than 50 years.
On Instagram, the beauty queen said she is going to Baguio City to be with the pageant contestants. The coronation night will be on October 25 in Baguio City.
Shamcey wrote, “Feeling a bit under the weather the past few days. I blame this on the gloomy rainy weather. So glad that my Covid test came out negative today and I’ll be able to join my girls in Baguio.”
She went on to sincerely thank those who still support the pageant. Shamcey wrote, “To everyone who has been supporting @themissuniverseph from the very beginning, thank you from the bottom of my heart. And yes we HEAR you guys loud and clear.”
She said they will continue with the pageant despite the challenges because this would help show how strong the Filipino spirit is.
Shamcey wrote, “To say that it has been a challenging year for us is an understatement. But I say, this is not just our fight, nor our candidates fight for the crown, this is for every Filipino that faces adversity, that no matter how difficult life is now, we should never give up nor lose hope and to keep on fighting. Padayon ta!”
