Rachel Peters: Give Mocha Uson a chance!

19 May - While Miss International Philippines Mariel de Leon was critical of Mocha Uson's appointment as the Assistant Secretary of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), Miss Universe Philippines Rachel Peters seemed to be more welcoming when asked about it.

As reported on Coconuts Manila, Peters, who spoke to the media about the appointment recently, expressed her opinion that a person should be given a chance to show their worth.

"You can't judge a book by its cover, that's something that I was always taught by my parents. We should all give her a chance. We should stand behind President Duterte," she said.

Last week, de Leon expressed her annoyance with the news of Uson's appointment, writing online that her heart breaks at finding out about Uson's position in the government.

Although she later deleted her comments, de Leon said that she will not stop using her voice and platform to be part of the change.
