“I am blessed and overwhelmed now to be crowned the new Limgas,” the emotional Soriano, a senior mass communication student at the Trinity University Asia, said in an interview.

As the newly-crowned Limgas, Soriano received her sash as Miss Millennial Pangasinan who shall represent the province in the upcoming Miss Millennial Philippines search.

Rounding off the top eight finalists were the top three winners, two runners-up, along with Tiffany Munoz (Asingan), Bonna Brexie Molina (Urdaneta City), and Felice Nicolle Carino (Mangaldan).

The 15 Limgas crown hopefuls were trimmed to the top eight finalists, who responded to the final question: “What do you think is Pangasinan’s most immediate concern, and as a Limgas na Pangasinan, what would you propose to address and to resolve it?”
