Teresita Ssen “Winwyn” Marquez marks another milestone in pageant history as she bagged Philippines’ first-ever Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 crown last Saturday, November 4 in Sta. Cruz, Bolivia.
The Kapuso actress is the first Filipina and Asian delegate to compete in the said annual pageant that celebrates Hispanic heritage, language and culture.
Winwyn started her career in GMA. She hosted Candies, a lifestyle program which was aired on QTV Channel 11.
She’s also proven her prowess in acting in various Kapuso drama programs Blusang Itim, One True Love, Dormitoryo, Kambal Sirena, The Half Sisters, Little Nanay, Encantadia and Mulawin vs. Ravena.
Aside from being an actress, Winwyn was one of the regular performers on Network’s musical-variety programs Party Pilipinas and Sunday All Stars.
After winning the coveted crown, Winwyn shared her message as Reina Hispanoamericana on the pageant’s official Facebook page last Sunday.
“Hola, hello everyone! I’m your new Reina Hispanoamericana, I am very happy and I promise, I will make the Hispanic culture alive. She ended with “I love you Filipinas. Mabuhay! Te amo, Bolivia. Gracias!”
