14 Jul – Catriona Gray recently revealed that she and Nicole Cordoves will be holding a mentorship programme for the 40 candidates of the 2020 Binibining Pilipinas pageant.
The Miss Universe 2018 shared the good news on Instagram on 14 July, writing, "I hope to impart my belief that being a Miss Universe or successful in pageantry is not limited to walking well and being 'beautiful', but rather being anchored to a cause and being a voice."
"I envision a generation of Filipinas that are prepared, value-driven and, confident enough to take a seat at the table. To be a vessel of good works, and also amplifier of the communities whose voices need to be heard. Our mentorship has begun."
The said programme will be held under the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI).
In an interview soon after, Gray stated that she was able to win the previous pageant due to good mentorship and support system, and had since vowed to do the same for the future beauty queens if such opportunity arises.
