20-year old 'brains-and-beauty' is 2007 Roxas fiesta queen
Roxas City (1 December) -- Twenty-year old Caressa Lynn Siglos, a stunning, statuesque, and talented young professional, is this year's Roxas City Fiesta Queen.
Her coronation will be one of the major highlights of this year's Sinadya sa Halaran festival here.
Her Majesty Queen Caressa Lynn, only daughter of Eduardo Magtibay Siglos of Gumaca, Quezon and Marilyn de Vicente of Capiz, was born on February 9, 1987. Growing up with no siblings and no close cousins made Caressa learn to interact with adults and relate to them even in her childhood years.
Caressa, as most people would agree, has always been brilliant. Studying at the President Manuel Roxas Memorial School-South after moving to Roxas City from Manila at age six, she won her first national (5th place) at the National Students' Press Conference in Isabela for a feature article on Jose P. Rizal. Her intellectual gifts served her well, as she graduated with honors and academic awards in most of her subjects.
She spent high school at the Colegio de la Purisima Concepcion, where she represented the province during the West Visayas Private Schools Athletic Association Regional Cultural Meet at Bago City, Negros Occidental, competing both in Vocal Solo (Classical) and Extemporaneous Speaking (English).
Again, she graduated with honors, receiving among others the President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo Leadership Award, the Journalism Award for being the editor-in-chief of their school paper, and the Cultural Award for her active participation in various cultural projects and activities.
She spent her college years at the College of St. John-De La Salle Supervised where she took up Bachelor of Science in Psychology. She won the title Mutya ng PACSA, besting beauties from all over the Philippines in this national pageant for student leaders. This proclaimed her as the Ambassadress of Goodwill for the Philippine Association of Campus Student Advisers and Student Leaders in Baguio City in 2003. She is a champion debater and extemporaneous speaker.
Currently, she is the Student Activities Coordinator and a college instructor at CSJ-DLSU here. She is a true woman, embodying the qualities and attributes of the true Capiceņa, thus deserving to be this year's Fiesta Queen. (PIA) [top]
