What a great era it is to be a Filipina!
After the coronation of Pia Wurtzbach as Miss Universe 2016, the Philippines earned another crown as Baby Newfield, a 48-year old beauty was hailed as the winner of Mrs. Grandma Universe 2016 held in Bulgaria.
Not only was she hailed as the winner, Baby also won the award for best national costume. Heck, the universe might have fallen in love with our country!
She vowed to “be the voice of all grandmothers,” saying that there are some who still don’t consider people of her age as deserving of equality and opportunity compared to younger generations.
“We work hard; patience and determination are secrets in life that make us successful,” Newfield remarked.
Newfield is an entrepreneur from Alabang, Muntinlupa and leads Cartridge World Philippines, a global firm that manufactures ink and toners for distribution domestically and internationally.
A widow, mother to four, grandmother to four and an entrepreneur bested 50 other grand moms of the world.
Grandma Universal is a pageant for older women advocating for age equality, so hurrah for more equality!
