“Thank you Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc., for this blessing to continue my dream journey. This is such exciting news that my MI sisters and I have been praying for and messaging a lot about,” Arnold added.

Arnold shared that she’ll use the “extra time to spread more awareness about the United Nations Sustainable Goals” which aims to end “poverty, inequality, and climate change.” 

“Tuloy ang laban, see you in Japan in December,” Arnold said.
