Noble Queen of the Universe
The former mayor is also an actress and a singer, now she has another accolade to add to her list of achievements. In an interview before the pageant took place, Cristina said that she wanted to become the “Noble Queen” as it would help her provide support and expand her work for abused women and children.

Cristina is the fourth person to win the title so far, it was first bestowed upon fellow actress Patricia Javier in 2019.
Cristina and Patricia’s Friendship
Patricia and Cristina are old friends and the former encouraged the latter to join the pageant. Cristina revealed “Patricia, being Noble Queen 2019, who is also my friend, she was the one who really encouraged me.
She added “Actually, she did it last year, but I told her ‘not yet’ because of the pandemic.”
She also spoke about getting convinced to take part in the event and said “It would be nice to join a group of women who have the same advocacy that I am also doing. You’ll be more encouraged to do it as a team. That’s what convinced me.”
Patricia went on to become the pageant’s national director for the Philippines. She also holds the title of international director and oversees the whole global organization.
In an early interview, Patricia said that the organization was a great way to recognize the participants, their efforts and contributions to the community, and society at large. This would be done by analyzing the various programs that they initiated in their respective communities.
