Here's Gazini's opening statement.

"The world is aging... My grandparents raised me and I've worked in an organization that was supportive of elderly care. I learned, I realized that there's this stigma between ageism, poverty, and invinsibility.

It is [right] for us to remember that they were the ones who paved the way for us, and we should reciprocate that love and no one should ever be left behind."

While she didn't make it to the top 10, we're sure Gazini will continue on with her mission after the pageant. 

Aside from supporting the elderly, Gazini has also helped spread awareness against HIV.

And has worked with Smile Train Philippines, an organization that gives free cleft lip/palate surgeries for those in need.
