Beyond beauty and glamour, the Miss Silka Philippines 2019 pageant aims to serve as an inspiration to all Filipinas to value self-care or more known in Filipino as “alaga.”
“We want to focus on and remove the stigma from self-love, self-care, and independence.” said Eunice de Belen, Senior Brand Manager of Silka. “We want all Filipinas to know that self-care or “alaga sa sarili” is essential. It is not about being wrapped up in oneself, as it strengthens and enables us to fully support and take care of others (our loved ones), contributing positively to community, society, and one’s chosen advocacy. After all, we cannot give what we do not have. Caring ”alaga” has to start from oneself. Once you do that, you’ll see how much more you can give ’alaga’ to others.” de Belen said.
