November 10, 2023

After being crowned as Miss Reserved Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Luzon 2023, Angel Brahms Malavega Bernalde, a first-year student at the Bicol University College of Education (BUCE), snatched the first-ever Miss ROTC Games Philippines 2023 during the coronation night at the Cuneta Astrodome, Pasay City, on October 21, 2023.

Hailing from Rapu-Rapu, Albay, the morena beauty bested 23 other ROTC cadet candidates from different Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) nationwide. 

In the question and answer portion, Angel was believed to have dominated the pageant with her unique beauty and strong presence throughout the competition. 

“Ever since I joined the ROTC Program, I have strongly shown the cadets in our school my strong work ethic and genuine love for the country, which makes me deserving. Coupled with my genuine passion to serve my country, I take it as important that I know what I want to do and what I can do,” Bernaldez answered.

The BUeño received a cash prize of P50,000, a laptop, and gift certificates from a clothing store. Mikaela Ingaran from the Angeles University Foundation and Julianne Rose Reyes of Patts College of Aeronautics from the Air Force Unit were crowned runner-ups. 

Angel also holds the title of Spotlight Couronne Internationale Inc. (SCI) Philippines 2023, a fashion and clothing brand. | by Arnold C. Noda, MPS I-CPRO
