It is an absolute honor for every girl out there to be taking part in a beauty pageant like Miss Silka Northern Mindanao. Being a Miss Silka title-holder, you can do great things with different activities and events scheduled for you. However, the responsibility of wearing the crown does not end there, it is also about being a great ambassador for Silka Philippines, being passionate about the brand and being able to connect to a lot of people.
With so many responsibilities and limitations, it takes a brave woman like Judith Polestico to fight for the crown and become the reigning Miss Silka Northern Mindanao 2017.
