Albayana, Miss Fit Philippines 2022 1st Runner Up

LEGAZPI CITY- Aliya Ur Rahman Khan Clemeña Rohilla, a 21-year old from Tiwi, Albay won 1st Runner Up in Miss Fit Philippines 2022, held at Palazzo Verde, Vista Alabang, Las Piñas City on Tuesday, Jan. 31.

Aliya is currently a 2nd year Bachelor of Science in Aircraft Maintenance Technology (BSAMT) student at PATTS Aeronautics College in Parañaque City.

She started joining pageantry since she was 16 and has won several beauty pageant titles like, Mutya ng Bongabong 2018, Mutya ng Alinao 2018 1st Runner Up, Pacific Mall Grand Teen Hearthrob Grand Champion in 2018, Miss Teen International Philippines 2019 1st Runner Up, Miss Teen Supranational Philippines 2019, where she was supposed to represent the Philippines in Guatemala but was then cancelled due to pandemic, and Mutya ng Pili 2022 1st Runner Up.

According to Aliya, her journey to Miss Fit Philippines 2022 was difficult and tough because she didn’t have a pasarela [style of ramp or walk of a beauty queen] nor a Q and A coach.

“I was both a candidate and a trainer for myself. It was difficult because usually beauty queens prepare for that by having people who will actually guide them in those segments (pasarela and Q&A),” she said.

However, during her last minute of preparation Aliya said that there were people who reached out to her and helped her after watching her press presentation.

“I’m really grateful for the 4-day last minute trainings provided for me by Kuya Francis, Ate Basallo (pasarela) and Kuya Wyslly Ala (Q&A). They really saved my performance during the coronation night itself,” she added.

Meanwhile her mother, Xenia Clutario Clemeña, also gave advice to some beauty pageant mothers like her to always believe in their daughters.

“To all the mothers out there. Always believe that your daughter is destined to be significant in the world, prepare her to be resilient to the challenges that may come with it, and of course be her rock in every step that she take,” Clemeña said.

Both Aliya and her mother extended their gratitude to all the supporters of Aliya especially to all Albayanos.

“I sincerely appreciate your support. I just want to say a big thank you for the positive effect you have had on my Miss Fit Philippines 2022 journey. I appreciate your support and good tips, you will never know how much it means to me. I sincerely appreciate your help, without you, I could not have accomplished this,” Aliya stated. | Aimee Mae Gizelle Sesno
