Did you know that before Jinkee Pacquiao became a media personality and a socialite, she used to be a beauty queen?

Jinkee took her Instagram followers for a stroll down memory lane with a throwback photo of her joining the Miss GenSan pageant in 1996—three years before she married boxing icon Senator Manny Pacquiao.

The 25-year-old photo showed Jinkee waving and smiling at the camera wearing a one-piece swimsuit alongside other contenders.

“Wow. A blast from the past. Memories ?. That’s me 25 years ago. ? ," she wrote on Instagram.

Celebrities like Ruffa Gutierrez and Francis Libiran liked and commented on the throwback photo, wowed by Jinkee's old pic.

On Manny's bid for presidency

She also shared photos of husband Manny Pacquiao at his faction's recent PDP-Laban national assembly where the senator announced his bid for presidency. 

Jinkee expressed support for the boxer in the post's caption.

"As a wife, I and our children stand beside him wholeheartedly supporting him with our love prayers and confidence," she wrote. "It has not been an easy decision for him but his heart and love for our country calls him to."
