MUPH Davao stands up vs. VAWC

By Markie Cervantes/UM Intern

MISS UNIVERSE Philippines candidate Johanna Puyod Yulo continues to support advocacies that minimize, if not eliminate, violence against women and their children (VAWC) cases.

During the PEP talks at SM Lanang on March 26, Yulo, representing Davao Region in the Miss Universe Philippines pageant, shared her remarkable journey as a mother of two at 39 years old and a survivor of domestic violence.

Her advocacy centers on addressing the issue of VAWC. Yulo urged others not to lose hope, drawing from her own experiences with domestic violence, emphasizing the importance of seeking support in difficult times.

“I will be an inspirational peer to be the voice to those voiceless, and supporting violence against women to those who are suppressed, depressed, and oppressed individuals,” Yulo said.

In addition to her roles as a fashion model and entrepreneur, Yulo actively engages in fostering connections with relevant individuals and organizations. 

She also expressed amazement at her fellow contestants’ advocacies, emphasizing the significance of their camaraderie and shared experiences. 

“It is not just about their achievements but their heart in serving other people and sharing each gift we have,” Yulo said.

She will be vying for the crown transcending her advocacy on May 22 to the coronation night of  Miss Universe Philippines at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
