Rachel Peters can't wait to compete in Miss Universe

8 Nov – With the country has already produced two beauty queens - Miss Earth 2017 Karen Ibasco and Reina Hispanoamericana Winwyn Marquez, it is easy for the next Philippines pageant bet to feel pressured to do their best.

But according to Miss Universe-Philippines Rachel Peters, it just made her more motivated and excited to show her worth.

"I want to go tomorrow. I want to be there already. It's like dragging so long because the excitement is there ever since they released the date of the pageant. I'm just ready to go and meet the girls and show the world, or the universe rather, what I can do," she said.

For now, Peters said that she has been using all the free time she has practicing, doing fittings, going to the gym, and everything that revolves around Miss Universe.

And whenever she is feeling doubtful of herself, Peters said that she would turn to her predecessors, Miss Universe-PH 2016 Maxine Medina and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach for advice.

"Pia told me to just enjoy myself, that if I stress myself too much, I will regret it later," she said.

The upcoming 66th Miss Universe pageant will be held on 26 November.
