24 Jan – Miss World Philippines Michelle Dee has recently been named the new Goodwill Ambassador of Autism Society Philippines (ASP).
The beauty queen shared the good news on Instagram with a photo of her at the press conference that was held to announce her appointment, writing, "My heart is full and I'm so grateful for the trust."
"With everything that we've done and to everything we're about to do, cheers to a brighter and more inclusive Autism-Ok nation," she added.
It is noted that Dee is no stranger to raising awareness about the disorder, as she herself has two siblings with autism.
In a previous YouTube post, Dee shared her experience of growing up with her two siblings, saying, "Every day was a struggle, every single day was a battle in my head between what was normal and what was normal for the world. I think about them all the time. Their future, their well-being. I just want them to be okay."
