It is no secret that Filipinas are among the most beautiful women in the world. Simply observe the countless beauty queens who dominated the internationally-acclaimed pageants in the recent years.
Everybody knows the eye-catching appeal of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and the elegance exuded by Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa. However, you do not need to possess a crown to prove that you are beautiful in your own right. You rise above the pack because of your extraordinary traits and charming disposition.
#1: Filipinas Value Their Families.
Close familial ties are deeply embedded into the Philippine culture. More often than not, you will encounter Filipinas who prioritize their own families first. They are willing to do anything in order to make their children’s lives more comfortable. This is probably one of the main reasons why overseas workers are often typecast as Filipinas. This is not a bad thing! It only manifests how capable and determined a Filipina is.
At a young age, most are taught about the strategies to efficiently manage the household by completing simple chores such as sweeping the room or washing the dishes. Some foreigners are attracted to the Filipinas’ ability to run a well-organized household.
#2: Filipinas Are Educated.
Aside from the unwavering importance posed on the familial ties, Filipinas were taught about the importance of quality education. Pinoy parents are usually eager to share the news of their children’s academic achievements. Furthermore, they desire to enroll their children in the best schools possible in order for them to succeed in life.
Some of the Filipinas who manifested that “beauty comes with brains” were Dr. Honoria Acosta-Sison and Ms. Leonor Orosa Goquingco. Dr. Honoria was the first Filipina physician who graduated from an American medical school. While, Ms. Leonor was given the National Artist Award in 1976. Modern Filipinas follow their inspiring footsteps.
#3: Filipinas Are Diverse.
Men are attracted to Filipinas because of their diversity. In this day and age, the standards for the Filipina beauty has changed. The stereotypical Filipina beauty known internationally rounds up the qualities of having a short stature, tan glow, and dark hair. The modern Filipinas broke the existing stereotypes by proving that they are beautiful in all shades, shapes, and sizes!
The media began to welcome the sun-kissed morena, the almond-eyed chinita, the mixed-raced mestiza, and everything in between. We are fortunate enough to live in a time where all forms of Filipina beauty are celebrated.
#4: Filipinas Are Trailblazers.
Filipinas know that looking good on the inside is as valuable as looking good on the outside. This is why they cultivate their appearance and skills.
Records have shown that Filipinas held more key positions in the government compared to its neighboring Southeast Asian countries. It is easy to find women who are presidents, CEOs, and managers of various companies. This ability to “lead the pack” is attractive to many people.
#5: Filipinas Are Generally Optimistic.
Despite the overwhelming trials and difficult problems that may come, our nation remains hopeful and optimistic about the future. Filipinas share a generally optimistic disposition too. Like the beaming rays of the soon, these women will delight you with their long anecdotes and humble chatter.
Humor is utilized even in the most unexpected situations. This is the kind of attitude that you want to be surrounded by.
#6: Filipinas Are Free to Speak Their Minds.
Most Filipinas are not afraid to speak up their minds, especially regarding the subject of human rights. Just observe the abundance of women’s organizations such as GABRIELA, LIKHAAN, and WEDPRO. These organizations exude courage and passion for pursuing change.
Whether they are fighting for choices or love, Filipinas know how to fight for their what they believe in!
The beauty of a Filipina shines through due to her extraordinary wits, charm, and strength. There is truly more than what meets the eye!
