Miss Universe Philippines 2023 Michelle Dee was named on Friday (December 1) as the new tourism ambassador of the Philippines.
The beauty queen was appointed by the Department of Tourism (DOT) and was conferred the title DOT Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco.
Dee was one of the favourites at the recently concluded Miss Universe pageant where she finished at the Top 10. She won four special awards, including Best in National Costume, Miss Universe Fan Vote, Spirit of Carnival Award and Voice for Change award.
Her new role as tourism ambassador of the Philippines is aimed at helping promote Philippine tourism and raise awareness about its unique culture.
Earlier this year, Hollywood actress Vanessa Hudgens was tapped as a global tourism ambassador for the Philippines.
The Filipino-American star received the award in a ceremony in Malacañang, with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. conferring the title.
Meanwhile, Miss Universe Philippines issued an announcement on Friday for interested candidates to join the 2024 pageant.
The organization issued a call for those who “aspire to be a force for good and you have the dream, dedication and heart to represent the country” to send in their applications. ICA/Expat Media
