OC Alumna hails Miss Intercontinental 2019

Karen Gallman, a graduate of Olivarez College Basic Education Department, represented the Philippines in the Miss Intercontinental 2019 pageant held in the Mall of Asia Arena on January 27, 2019.

She made history when she became the first Filipino woman to win the Miss Intercontinental crown after 46 long years, besting 82 other aspirants in the pageant.

Her winning, straightforward and concise answer on the question, “how would you define success?” is her path to get the coveted crown.  “For me, success is not just about winning in life but setting goals — smaller goals — and achieving your dreams and working hard for everything you want and always looking up to God and being thankful for everything. For me, that is success,” she very well said.
