30 Jan – Catriona Gray has been named one of this year's ambassadors of the National Commission of Culture and Arts (NCCA).

The beauty queen shared the good news on social media writing, "Such an honor to be recognized as the 2020 Ambassador for the Arts by the Philippine National Commission of Culture and Arts.

"I believe artists always create with intention. And in my pursuit to conquer my universe and to achieve my dream I sought to take the opportunity to celebrate our national Philippine heritage, art, history, textiles, music and dance to bring forth a new-found interest in Philippine Arts to the younger generation. It brings me great pride to continue sharing our unique, Filipino heritage in the arts to my universal platform as it has become my advocacy, aside from advocating for education and HIV/AIDS, to advocate for love of country," she expressed.

Aside from Gray, two other artistes who were announced as this year's ambassadors are singer KZ Tandingan and actress Julia Ann San Jose.
