PH bet Elizabeth Clenci is 2nd Runner-up at Miss Grand International 2017

It was another almost for the Philippines. After a stellar performance in the speech segment, swimsuit, evening gown, and final question and answer, Miss Philippines Elizabeth Clenci placed Second Runner-up to Miss Peru at Miss Grand International 2017. 

For the second consecutive year, a Filipina almost won the crown after Nicole Cordoves missed it by a hairline, finishing First Runner-up last year. 

Peruvian Maria Jose Lora was crowned at the pageant night held in the Vietnamese city of Phu Quoc. Miss Venezuela Tulia Aleman came in as First Runner-up. Another Latina placed Third Runner-up, Brenda Azaria of Puerto Rico. While Miss Czech Republic, Nikola Uhlirova,  finished as the Fourth Runner-up. 

In her speech on peace, this is what Clenci said: "The fight for peace is far more significant than any other and one that holds dearly to my heart. For we all know the horrors of war and the many that fighted but a wiser few are willing to fight for peace. Today, I stand here knowing that it is my responsibility to fight for peace and to strive for peace in this world through love, compassion, understanding and education. Tonight, I stand here with all of these women behind me, spreading the message of peace. I'm here to remind you all as Philippine peace ambassador that this is your responsibility too. This is our responsibility... today, tomorrow and  for the generations to come."
