Arielle Roces of HS IV-Efficiency proved once again that Southville students got both beauty and brains by bagging titles, special awards, cash prizes and gift items from two different beauty contests.
She was hailed as Ms. Photogenic and 1st runner-up in the Generation East 2011 Model Search held last June 4, 2011. This competition sponsored by Sta. Lucia Malls has produced the likes of actresses Angel Locsin and Arci Muñoz. Days after, she again competed and won as the new endorser of Binibining Mestiza, a soap brand. In that tilt held last June 12, 2011, she also received the Best in Swimsuit and Best in Long Gown awards.
Though oftentimes Arielle was the youngest among the candidates, she was never intimidated. She cheerfully shared, “Southville has taught me everything that a pageant wants a candidate to be. I have the confidence, good moral character, pleasing personality and of course, knowledge. I appreciate that my school keeps on encouraging its students to achieve their goals in life and make a difference.”
