It’s the last stretch of the preparations, and she’s showing no signs of slowing down.
With just six weeks to go before the Miss Universe pageant, Miss Universe-Philippines Maxine Medina is preparing for what could be the most important event of her life.
The Filipina beauty queen is spending lots of time in the gym to work on her core and achieve a “toned, but feminine” look. Maxine’s trainer John Cuay, is the same guy who took care of Venus Raj and Pia Wurtzbach prior to their own competitions in 2010 and 2016 respectively.
In a report by Balitanghali, Maxine also shared that she wants to promote the Philippines in the right way during the competition.
Pia’s advice for her was very simple: To relax.
“Relax ka lang, kasi kasama mo naman ako throughout,” Pia supposedly told Maxine.
Maxine added that she is thankful for the help and support that she’s getting from the reigning Miss Universe.
Maxine will be share the stage with delegates from across the world on Jan 30, 2017 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
