Miss Julia Novel Gonowon, the lovely 21-year old lass from Iriga City is crowned as the first ever Miss Millennial 2017, TV Eat Bulaga’s biggest beauty and tourism pageant, which was held on September 30, 2017 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena amidst the uproar and fanfare of crowd supporters and fans alike.
As Miss Millennial, Julia received PhP550,000.00 cash prize, a brand new Montero SUV, and a fully-furnished condo unit in Metro Manila. She also won a special award as Miss Flawlessly U.
The other ladies in the competition were all heavy weights in their own right but what stood out for Julia above the rest was her smart and heartfelt response to the Q & A which clinched for her the win!
In May this year, Julia was also crowned as Miss Kaogma 2017 and just in early September before the Penafrañcia festivities, she landed 2nd Runner Up in the Miss Bicolandia 2017 pageant in Naga City.
Julia is a BS Psychology student of the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA - Las Piñas and was given full support and financial assistance by Camarines Sur Gov. Migz Villafuerte as part of the competition and as a showcase of the tourism potentials in the province. JMTS/MMEC
