In the Top 10 semifinal round, Winwyn’s answer to the powerful question on promoting hispanic language around the world:
“Language can be learned, but the will and determination to contribute something to the organization cannot.
It has to come from the heart and it has to be natural.
I believe that kindness is a universal language — that if you treat people with tolerance, patience, and love, you will understand each other.
Hispanic culture is not about language only. It’s about love for God, love for country, love for history and culture,, and love for family.
As a Filipina with a unique heritage, I am ready to promote the Hispanic culture, not just in Asia, but in the whole world.
It is time to celebrate the Hispanic culture. It is meant to be celebrated.
Winwyn Marquez is an actress in the Philippines and the first Filipina and Asian to join the prestigious Hispanic search. She’s one of those favored by Bolivian press and photographers, predicted to snatch the crown.
