Brianah was definitely a crowd’s favorite as she was highly applauded in every portion of the competition particularly in the evening gown portion where she bagged the best in gown award.
From twenty-two they were trimmed down into top five which they answered one common question:
“Bakit sa tingin mo ikaw ang pinaka the best na Saniata ti Agtutubo?” (Why do you consider yourself as the best Saniata ti Agtutubo?)
And despite with the very tight competition and pressure in standing in front of the big crowd, she strived her best to answer.wholeheartedly and confidently.
“Sa tingin ko po, ako ang the best na Miss Saniata ti Agtutubo kasi pinakita ko at inilabas ko ang aking talino, talento at kagandahan sa loob at labas. Gagamitin ko ito para maging isang magandang modelo sa mga batang kagaya ko.” Brianah said.
