UST Graduate wins BB. Pilipinas Universe 2012

A pharmacy graduate of University of Sto. Tomas (UST) was crowned Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2012 in the coronation night held on Sunday, April 15 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Tugonon (No. 18) bested 29 other contestants for the right to represent the country in this year's Ms. Universe pageant that will be held in Florida, USA.

In the question and answer portion, Tugonon was asked the question, "Many women nowadays forego a happy family life for a successful career. How do you feel about this?"

Her answer reflected her views as a modern Filipina. "Well, I believe that women have the right to choose between what they want, but for me, you'll have to go for what God has called you to do, whatever it is between the two. You must do what your purpose is in this world. Just have a childlike faith and a mature obedience and everything will go smooth."

Janine is a veteran in the BB. Pilipinas pageant. She placed first runner-up during Bb. Pilipinas 2011.

Nicole Schmitz (No. 8) was crowned Bb. Pilipinas-International and Katrina Jayne Dimaranan (No. 13) was proclaimed Bb. Pilipinas-Tourism. Elaine Kay Moll was declared 1st runner-up while Annalie Forbes was 2nd runner-up.
