Binibining Pilipinas 2018 Catriona Gray is no stranger to pageantry. She was crowned Miss World Philippines in 2016 and made it to the Top 5 of Miss World. But her beauty is far more than what we all see when she is in the pageant scene. You might not know she’s also a travel blogger, a singer, and a philanthropist!

Catriona is a travel enthusiast. She blogs about her adventures on her personal site cat-elle.com and posts bits of it on her Instagram account with the hashtag #CatelleTravels. Just by looking through her photos, you can see how much she enjoys the beach and food the most every time she travels! In 2016, she got to tick another item off her bucket list—to have pizza at Times Square in New York City!
A music lover, Catriona’s special talents include singing and playing the guitar. She earned a Masters Certificate in Music Theory from the Berklee College of Music in Boston. In her talent showcase for the pageant, this binibini left the audience in awe with a power ballad!
Catriona gives importance to the welfare of others. For about three years now, she has been in an organization that offers free and accessible education to the youth of Tondo, Manila. Last year, some of the philanthropist’s artworks were up for sale and the proceeds were donated to a charity. She also shared in an Instagram post on that same year that she collected trash on a beach in Bohol to clean it up and encouraged others to do the same. Without a doubt, Catriona could be an inspiration to many!
