Expat Media spoke with Cory Quirino, President and National Director of Mutya ng Pilipinas, on the Dubai version of the popular pageant. Here is the Q&A

Tell us about your experience in pageantry.

I entered beauty pageantry in 2011. Then, I was tasked to re-launch Miss World Philippines. By 2013, the Philippines ended the long wait by winning its first Miss World crown with Megan Young. I ended my pageantry career in 2016 with Catriona Gray finishing in the Top 4 in Miss World. After my hiatus from pageantry, I re-entered the industry as President and National Director of Mutya ng Pilipinas in 2019. It gives me a great sense of fulfillment to discover aspiring beauty queens in their respective hometowns. It has been more than 13 years of commitment to moulding the lives of young ladies.

When was Mutya ng Pilipinas Dubai launched and what is its purpose?

Mutya ng Pilipinas Dubai was launched last August 2023 by Majestic Events Management under Meryl Adan.

Describe your ideal Mutya ng Pilipinas Dubai queen.

She is a young lady who will use the platform of Mutya ng Pilipinas wisely for the betterment of all women. She will be an admirable example of a modern Filipina whose roots are deeply embedded in Philippine tradition and culture.

Following the March 3 coronation, what is next for the title holder?

Depending on the title she win , the winner will represent the Philippines with dignity and pride

What do you hope to achieve with Mutya ng Pilipinas?

Mutya ng Pilipinas hopes to expand its reach to all Filipinas here and abroad. My message to all aspiring queens is to simply reach out to us. Our doors are open and so are our hearts. ICA/Expat Media
