Not all winners get to keep their 3,000 euro crown with them after winning the Miss Globe title. We spoke with Maureen Montagne, Miss Globe 2021, fresh from Albania and in her quarantine hotel in Quezon City.

“I feel honored to be the second Miss Globe and moreso, I am taking this with me,” said she. “It is not common for the winners to have their crowns and I will be one. So this is mine, property of Maureen. Hahaha! I will definitely, proudly display it in my home.”

The Miss Globe crown takes three months to make and is handcrafted by experts in Albania. The crown is made of pure silver, and blue sapphire and red ruby stones. But just as precious as her crown is her mission.

“After quarantine, I will definitely hit the ground running. I cannot wait. I will start with my programs dito sa Pilipinas. I will be a very active Miss Globe because I was told that the queen is in the pilot seat of her activities so that is what I am planning,” said Maureen.

Her first tour would be in key areas around the globe. “So, I am scheduled to attend Miss Globe pageant in Canada, Albania, and in Greece. And I think we have more countries on the way. I am excited.”

Maureen also has a very global approach as to what she wanted to do.

“My advocacy is feeding the hungry,” said she. “During the onslaught of the pandemic, I was stuck in Siargao for six months and that’s what I focused on there. I realized it’s a cause I can do anywhere in the world.”

Besides being stuck in Siargao, the 28-year-old beauty is missing her family in the other side of the world.

“Grabe! I haven’t seen my family in almost three years!” said Maureen. “I am the youngest in the family and I cannot wait to hug my mother. I gave up so much but it’s a good thing it was all worth it.”

After fixing the first leg of her reign, Maureen is going back to the United States, where she grew up to be reunited with her family for the holidays.

January, it is game time for her as she made it clear that besides her pageant life, she is also interested in the glitz and glamour of showbiz.

“I am definitely open for showbiz,” said she. “I do enjoy hosting, that is one of my passions. Let’s see the opportunity.”
