It was the first pageant joined by Lemuel Berango, but this does not stop him to be crowned as Mr. URSAC 2013. Judge by the look, Lemuel had already won the crowd, which became his edge among the other contenders. Also, the 17-year old BS-Information Technology student had impressed the judges in Q&A portion as he answers the question on whether he will accept an international offer to work abroad or to stay working in the country. He said, he will accept the offer as way to prove to other country how better the Filipinos are; this remark made him part of the Top 3.
Unlike Lemuel, Angel Marinas, had already joined several beauty contests, and two of which are titles as Ms. Antipolo Tourism and the other one is in their barangay, and added to her title is this year’s Ms. URSAC 2013. The first year FBPS student stunningly showcased her flexibility in different competitions in the pageant as she won four of the special awards, such as: Best in Jeans Wear, Best in Swim Wear, Best in Talent, and Best in Festival Wear.
In the last round of the competition, the top three for each category has to interpret picture, which will determine the winners. Lemuel interpreted a picture of students going to school while stepping on the chairs that are submerged in the flood. He brightly interpreted it that if a student has dream of achieving something like finishing the studies, no calamity could ever stop him. However, Angel interpreted a picture of two waif children playing on the street. She remarked that a picture is a reminder that every child has to have their dreams in life if they wanted to be successful in life, and it’s the role of everyone to inspire and to help the children to build their dreams and to make those dreams come true.
Six pairs from the three colleges, College of Education, College of Small Scale Industry, and College of Hospitality Industry, vied for the title. CHI hosted the pageant with Prof. Mylene Balagot as the over-all in charge of the activity.
