President Rodrigo Roa Duterte welcomed Jeslyn Santos, a 23-year old Filipina who became the first Asian to be crowned Miss United Continents, during a courtesy call held in Davao City.
Jeslyn, who hails from Hagonoy, Bulacan, impressed the judges and audience with her remarkable and inspiring answer on how she will unite the continents of the world. During the question and answer portion, Jeslyn Santos delivered her response in Spanish. The pageant night was held at the Palacio De Cristal in Guayaquil, Equador last September 24, 2016.
