Michelle Dee takes on new role as tourism ambassador

(UPDATE) MISS Universe Philippines 2023 Michelle Daniela Marquez Dee will be the country's tourism ambassador.
Dee accepted the invitation to promote the Philippines during her courtesy call to Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco at the Department of Tourism (DoT) Central Office in Makati City on Friday.

«Thank you for the honor that you have bestowed upon all Filipinos by carrying the flag of the Philippines so excellently and by declaring to the world your love for the Philippines and reminding the world of the many reasons to love the Philippines,» Frasco said.
She also invited Dee «to continue to be an ambassador of tourism for our country.»

Frasco asked the beauty queen to participate in the DoT's latest promotional initiative, the Philippine Experience Program (PEP), which celebrates the country's rich heritage, arts and culture through a series of regional caravans.
«I'm so excited. I'm so humbled and honored. I didn't expect this kind of overwhelming flow of reception, love, and support,» Dee said.

«It's no secret that I've always been proud to call the Philippines my home, and I really wanted it to shine on the Miss Universe stage because it is an amazing platform to showcase what you are passionate about,» she said.
Dee was crowned Miss World Philippines in 2019. She competed in the Miss World 2019 pageant in London, England, finishing in the top 12.
She represented the Philippines in the Miss Universe 2023 pageant in El Salvador, and was among the top 10 semifinalists.
«We will spread that goal and that passion to really make the universe know what tourism in the Philippines has to offer,» Dee said.
