Elaine Kay Moll Advised By Shamcey Supsup To Own It

Only on its fourth staging, the Miss Supranational 2012 saw this year's Binibining Pilipinas first runner-up Elaine Kay Moll, 21, compete for the crown of reigning Miss Supranational Monika Lewczuk in ceremonies held in Warsaw, Poland on Sept. 14.

A little surprised that she was tapped to compete abroad, Kay expressed her hopes of winning the crown during a recent media presentation put together by the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI), and graced by no other than BPCI Chairperson, Madame Stella Marquez Araneta.

Despite her surprise, though, Kay expressed excitement and nervousness "because this will be my first time in Europe, in Poland - and for a competition pa!"

Prior to leaving for Poland, however, she has already undergone continuous training in preparation for the competition, including "pasarela - catwalk or pageant walk; and I've been researching about Poland na rin, about the culture. Then, I read a lot."

She also gave the media a sampling of some of the Polish words she's learned so far, like phrases for "good day" and "thank you so much."

When asked what characteristic would make her stand out from among the hopefuls during a brief interview with Bulletin Entertainment, Kay replied, "I think I could be modest and aggressive at the same time. I know when or not to do things... be aggressive or modest or be just myself."

Present during the media event was Miss Universe 2011 third runner-up Shamcey Supsup. In an exclusive interview with Bulletin Entertainment, Shamcey said, "I told her nga na parang she should be very happy she was given this chance to travel abroad, [to] Poland. Sabi ko, 'Poland 'yan! Di pa ako nakakapunta diyan, Europe 'yan. Magdala ka ng camera.' I was telling her. I think she'll be able to know a lot more people and realize na parang there's a big world out there."

Based on her own pageant experience, Shamcey is positive Kay stands to gain more knowledge in ways that the young lady has yet to experience. "When I was in Miss Universe parang ang dami kong natutunan na parang, 'Ay, sa country pala na ganito ito yung nangyari, ito pala 'yung... this is what's happening now.' So parang it broadens your horizon and you realized na ang dami mong pwedeng gawin sa mundo, parang ganun. And even for me, it changed my mind-set na parang there's so many things that you can do aside from what you prepared yourself lang."

Considering Kay's background, Shamcey also noted, "Like for her, she was a varsity player, a basketball player, and now 'di ba, she's a beauty queen and she's representing the country. And I think after, she'll be able to learn about herself more, know what she wants, and be able to achieve kung ano 'yung na-formulate niya after she joined the contest."

Kay faced over 50 candidates at the Miss Supranational 2012 beauty pageant.
