Reina Hispanoamericana 2017 Teresita Ssen ‘Winwyn’ Marquez attended the annual Dakar Rally, the world’s biggest and toughest rally, in La Paz, Bolivia.
She shared photos of her experience on Instagram on Wednesday, January 17.
The photos showed her with the President and Vice President of Bolivia and enjoying the party of the event.
Another first for me! I met and got a recognition from the President and Vice President of Bolivia at the DAKAR in La Paz! what an experience. I still can’t believe that I am the First Filipino to be invited as a special guest at the biggest and toughest rally in the world.✨ I may have missed the Boulevard Carnaval but let’s look at the bright side.. I was at the DAKAR 2018 and I was invited to be a part of the Boulevard Carnaval and knew I had a wonderful spot in it. Maybe next year diba? Who knows ❤️ #ReinaTeresita #PrimeraFilipina
Winwyn was also supposed to be the first Filipina to be a special guest in the Boulevard Carnaval as part of the carnival activities in Santa Cruz. Due to bad weather conditions and conflicting schedules, Winwyn had to skip the event, but she shared one of her outfits on Instagram for her fans to see.
Due to the bad weather yesterday the Boulevard Carnaval was moved today pero hindi na po ako makakasali dahil naka schedule ang 3 connecting flights ko ngayon na umaabot ng 3 days ang byahe and mahirap na i-rebook dahil sa oras kaya kinakailangan na makauwi today plus meron din hinahabol na work sa Pilipinas ? kaya nag decide din kami ng RHA na umuwi nadin ako para makasiguro ako sa flight. isa toh sa mga susuotin ko for the show and may 3 pang napaka gaganda na damit ng carnaval..pero hindi ko na maipapakita 🙁 it’s sad but nag papa salamat padin ako sa sa week na toh kahit ang daming nangyari may purpose din bakit nangyari toh diba.. See you soon Manila.
