This year’s runner-ups were Miss Netherlands Nathalie den Deker and Miss New Zealand Lorena Hermida.

 

When Bea was asked during the Q&A portion what will she do if she wins Miss International, the 23-year-old beauty queen answered: “The whole world saw how my country suffered. One by one, other countries helped. You have opened my heart and eyes on what we can do to help each other. I will work to sustain the spirit of sympathy and spirit of hope. As long as we work together, there is hope.”

 

A few hours after the coronation event at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel Hall, Bea said in her twitter that she is still shock from her win.
