Niña Ruth Vega, daughter of the former police beat reporter of Manila Bulletin Vic Vega and Sports Reporter Virgie Rodriguez Vega, was able to take the judges’ breath away with the entirety of her performance.

A strong, confident, beautiful young lady is what she portrayed to be crowned and staged as the Miss Millennial Philippines 2020 Quarantine Edition.

At the final question and answer portion of the pageant, Ruth was asked: “If you win tonight, how can you contribute “Millennial Spirits” to others?”

Ruth answered, “If I will be the one who will win the crown tonight, it would be an honor, worthy of appreciation. This can become my key to spread love, happiness, and moral lesson to the youth by the use of my voice and social media. I can use this platform to encourage more people to be positive during these tough times we need each other and also becoming a role model for the upcoming generation, because I do believe united as one would be an impact for the greater good of the society”.

Throughout the performance, it is greatly evident that Ruth stood out from the 44 beautiful young ladies, from different regions, who also competed for the crown of Miss Millennial Philippines 2020.

Aside from the crown, Ruth also won some major and special awards in the pageant, including Best in Resorts Wear, Best in Catwalk, People’s Choice Award, Best in Pageant Walk, Best Photo, Best in Designer’s Choice of Formal Wear at Elsie Delos Reyes Creations Ambassadress.

Wholeheartedly, Ruth expressed her gratitude to the people who have been there with her every step of the way. To the Lord above all, then to her family, friends, and others who inspired her to continue aiming for the best version of herself.

“God’s timing is always perfect. Thank you, Lord. Thank you to my family and friends. Thank you to the organizer of the pageant P4 sir Kenneth Nabua. Thank you so much to my coach and handler Brylle Solidum, Garcia Sullano and photogs Januz Morrisey Lugay. I love you all,” she stated.

After the coronation last Sunday, Sept. 27, Ruth and her coach Brylle are now beginning preparations for an international competition in Thailand, where she will proudly represent her homeland, the Philippines.

The 17-year-old Ruth grew up in Las Piñas City. She showed honor, dignity, and good example of the youth of Las Piñas. She is a grade 11 senior high school student of University of Perpetual Help, System Dalta, Las Piñas Campus.

Ruth was also crowned Miss Teen Glam Philippines 2020, and the very first Miss Magnetico Philippines World 2019.
