Empowered Mothers vie for Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2014

Being a mom is not easy. Aside for being the "ilaw ng tahanan", taking care of kids, making sure the house is in order, cook, clean, they're also their family's teacher, helper, yaya, playmate, storyteller, doctor, nurse, baby whisperer, and so on. I could go on and on why being a mom is not that easy. Some of us mommies also have a day job to support our family. I really have high respect for mommies who not only served her family but also know how to empower their workplace. 

So, when I was invited to the media presscon of Mrs. Philippines Globe held at SMX Aura, I was not surprised that these dedicated mommies are also conquering the beauty pageant. And I'm glad that Filipinos now are embracing the idea of mommy pageant instead of pageants just for singles only. 

Out of hundreds of applicants from all over the country, twenty three single moms and married women have been chosen to compete for the prestigious crown of Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2014. 

A nationwide search for women of substance fit to be the face of Mrs. Globe, Mrs. Philippines-Globe is a platform to empower married women of substance and single mothers as movers of society. 

“These are women who do not let age and civil status get in the way of fulfilling their dreams, and whose achievements, charitable acts and life stories serve as inspiration to others forming a community and sisterhood of empowered women. Women are usually stereotyped to skills confined inside homes but Mrs. Philippines-Globe tries to change how married women and single mothers perceive themselves,” said national pageant director Morena Carla Cabrera-Quimpo.

These hot mama's are working it out on the stage! When I saw them up-close parang grabe I can't believe that they are all mommies just like me! Pwede pala akong maging kasing sexy nila, hehe! :D

Ranging from 26 to 44 years old, this year’s finalists are composed of women from diverse fields of expertise: hotel and restaurant management, academe, dentistry, pediatrics, speech and language pathology, business process outsourcing, direct selling, civil service and real estate.

The winner of Mrs. Philippines-Globe 2014 will receive up to PhP 300,000 worth of prizes. She will also represent the Philippines in the prestigious Mrs. Globe 2015 World Finals at Shenzhen, China in November.

I really loved their swimsuit!
