Months after passing on the crown, Miss World Philippines 2016 Catriona Gray is set to conquer Binibining Pilipinas — and hopefully, Miss Universe soon. Over on Instagram, the Filipino-Australian beauty made the announcement, saying how joining Binibining Pilipinas “was no way planned, but sometimes the stars align to make things happen,” 

Gray may not have bagged the Miss World title, landing at top 5, but we sure are looking forward to see her up on another stage where the likes of Pia Wurtzbach, Kylie Verzosa, and more beauty queens made history. 

Here’s what you need to know about the 23-year-old beauty queen:

1. Gray’s Instagram feed will make you want to travel more. 

This beauty queen loves to hop from one island to another (Bohol happens to be her favorite “home away from home”) and even promotes the beauty of the Philippines while she’s at it.

2. She has been in the entertainment industry for years. 

If ever Gray looks familiar to you, chances are you’ve seen her in Pantene’s empowering ‘Whip It’ campaign back in 2013. 

3. The beauty queen creates art for a cause 

Beauty with a purpose? Check. Gray started Paraiso: The Bright Beginnings Project, which aims to fundraise for the Preschool in the Smokey Mountain, with multiple efforts like holding and performing at benefit concerts, and even auctioning off original artworks.
