Liceo U has been tagged as the home of the queens for a good reason. The victory of Ms. Charinna Barro, a BS-Accountancy student adds to the long list of Miss Cagayan de Oro titleholders from Liceo U. Charinna, representing Barangay Macasandig edged out her competitors in a very tight race after she gracefully answered the question during the final round during the grand coronation night held last August 22 at the Atrium of the LImketkai Center. When asked, what is the one thing she would do to change the world, she quipped that changing one’s self, a change from within is the one thing she will do for she believes that big things come from small beginnings. Her consistent performance during the preliminaries plus her final answer proved to be a winning combination making her the fourth straight Miss Cagayan de Oro titleholder studying in Liceo U
since 2012 and the third beauty queen to have made waves from Liceo U in the past months after the runner-up finish of Beatrice Alvarez (AB-International Studies graduate) in the 2015 Miss Philippines Earth competition and Julee Ann Marie Bourgoin’s 1st Runner-up win in the recently concluded Mutya ng Pilipinas search. Bourgoin is a BS Mass Communications graduate.
Charinna previously won as Miss Silka Northern Mindanao 2014 and represented the region in the national tilt. She originally hails from Gingoog City but now considers Cagayan de Oro her home. Her Miss CDO court also includes another Licean, Ms. Cagayan de Oro 1st Runner-up Dylanna Bax, an HRIM graduate with top honor s and a former campus youth leader.
