MANILA — Senator Raffy Tulfo has been proud of Herlene Budol for winning the Bb. Pilipinas 2022 as first runner title, saying that she proved that English language proficiency is not the only measure of anyone’s capability to be successful in life.

Budol, who collaborated with Tulfo for video content prior to making it to the finals of the pageant, paid him a courtesy visit at the Senate on August 9.

The senator said he was impressed by her answer during the pageant’s question-and-answer portion in which Budol answered an English question in Filipino.

“Congratulations! I’m really very proud of you. Narinig ko ang sagot mo sa pageant, napakaganda. Ito lamang ay patunay na hindi naman lahat ng tao kailangang maging magaling sa Ingles to be succesful in life,” he said.

“Katulad mo, mayroong iba na sa kabila ng mga pagsubok sa buhay ay nagsumikap sila that’s why they managed to go up the ladder. Ikaw ay magandang ehemplo sa mga kababayan natin,” he added.

During the visit, Budol thanked Tulfo for recognizing her achievement and reminding her to believe in her capabilities when she told the Senator of her struggles in speaking English fluently.

“Hindi ka man magaling sa Ingles, pero malayo na ang narating mo,” the Senator told Budol. (ai/mtvn)
