Mrs. Universe
Western Pacific Asia

Joybelle Portabes
44 years old

"I firmly believe that the true beauty of a real beauty queen lies from within. She should have an immaculate and good heart and must be an effective advocate of worthy causes. I hope I will inspire a lot of married women that we can certainly make contributions to our country with a cause. It is my childhood quest to be of help and it honed me to be a better person. As a registered social worker it motivated me even more to realize my purpose. I indulge myself in charities and volunteer works that in my littlest of ways purpose has been served."

What three words best describe you? 

  • Upright, Honest & Persistent

  • Upright, I stand with the noble ideals of principle.

What are the things you are grateful for? 

  • I thank God for my family, who unceasingly dedicated their life to me. I am grateful for the relatives and friends who never doubted me and have supported me all the way.


What motivates you and why? 

  • My family is my fortress. I will do everything for them against all odds. It is my passion to lend a hand, which I considered a calling through my advocacies.


How do you define success? 

  • Success for me is not something that stays for yourself but rather shared.


What is woman empowerment to you?

  • In my viewpoint, women empowerment is an unparalleled right to fight for decency and equal access to all resources in various facets of life.


What is the relevance of beauty pageants in these times of difficulty? 

  • INSPIRATION gives us a platform and avenue to believe in the beauty of life. Trying times just come and go, a stage that hones the confidence that will serve as leverage to thrive for a better life.
