As response to this question, Miss World Philippines, Gwendoline Ruais, said:
“To be Miss World is my dream job, and I say job because it has a lot of responsibilities but there’s nothing I love more than communicating with other people. As Miss World you get to use your potential and your voice to help people from all around the world, and what is more wonderful than doing what you love by helping others.”

In an interview, Gwendoline said: “Everybody can help people in their own way. Of course when you’re all alone, it’s harder to do it, but now, being a part of Miss World, I have the privilege of being able to help people from all around the world. ”
