Angel Jed Zaragoza Latorre was recently crowned Miss Teen International Philippines last November 12, at the Tanghalang Pasigueno, Pasig City.
This 17-year-old stunner, a Grade 12 – HUMSS student of the Senior High School department of the University of San Agustin, is the first Ilongga to win the title. As shown in her final interview, her advocacy of inspiring young Filipinos and embracing one’s identity paved the way for her victory during the coronation night.
“I believe that each and every one, male, female, of all genders, bodies, characteristics is their own, so who am I to say that I want to change it, right? So instead of changing [them], I would like to encourage them, empower them to love each inch [and] flaw,” Ms. Latorre answered during the Q and A portion.
Ms. Latorre will once again bring pride to the University as she will represent the Philippines for the upcoming Miss Teen International 2022 this December in India.
The Augustinian community congratulates Angel Jed Latorre and wishes her good luck in her next journey.
