A student of Bicol University won in last Friday's Binibining Ligao Pageant in Ligao City.

Amity Rose Rivero is taking up AB English in said institution. She also studied at Oas Polytechnic School previously.

Observers say that Rivero still has a long career in pageants ahead of her, and should consider joining bigger competitions.

Meanwhile, in a statement on her Facebook account, Rivero expressed her joy in winning the pageant.

"I am still overwhelmed by the greetings and support of the people for the last night's pageant. I can't imagine myself having the crown, it's like..I can't still believe it!  After how many times I tried, at last I made it! It's really a matter of determination. I'm so much thankful for giving me the opportunity to be your Binibining Ligao 2014," she said.

Binibining Ligao is a prestigious annual beauty and brains contest that has attracted not only locals but also tourists from other parts of the province. It is one of the highlights of the six-day celebration of the Sunflower Festival and the anniversary of Ligao's cityhood.

Television actor Martin del Rosario, who is also a native of Ligao, graced the event with his presence.
