Venus Raj open to running for public office
Saksi video: Venus Raj says it’s not impossible for her to run for public office.
Miss Universe fourth runner-up Venus Raj is open to running for public office, reports GMANews.TV. Before she accepted on September 7 the House resolution commending her pageant achievement, Raj told reporters she would "start small" should she win an electoral position. For instance, she said she would push for cleanliness in her town in Camarines Sur. She would also campaign for additional funds for the training of aspiring beauty queens and recognition of people who bring honor to the Philippines.
"Pero hindi ka puwedeng mag-act alone. Definitely kailangan mo pa rin ng tulong ng ibang tao (But you can’t act alone. You would definitely still need help from other people)," Raj, 22, said. She revealed that she ran for a position in Bicol when she was 20 years old. "Pero hindi ako nanalo kasi bata pa ako (But I didn’t win because I was too young)."
