MANILA – Miss World Philippines 2019 Michelle Dee didn’t let the COVID-19 pandemic get in the way of her personal growth as she completed an entrepreneurship course at Harvard Business School Online.
The model and actress recently posted their Entrepreneurship Essentials Certificate on Instagram: “Nothing beats the satisfaction of finishing something you’ve challenged yourself to.”
“When you become obsessed with your personal growth, you push yourself to keep learning new things, and that’s how I got that,” she said.
“I remember cracking the deadlines because I was still in the lockdown band, but here we are!” She added.
Dee followed in her mother’s footsteps, Miss International 1979 Melanie Marquez, when she joined Miss World in 2019.
She finished the competition, which was won by Toni-Anne Singh from Jamaica, in the top 12.
Only actress-model Megan Young has won the Miss World crown for the Philippines so far. She joined in 2013 and has since been co-host of the pageant.
