Binibining Pilipinas-Universe Ariella Arida brushes off bashers who slam her "iffy English"
She has a degree in Chemistry from the University of the Philippines Los Baños. Enough said.
ABS-CBNNews.com reports that on Monday, October 21, in an interview on ANC's Headstart, Binibining Pilipinas-Universe Ariella Arida reacted to bashers who pointed out that "she is not as fluent in English compared to other Filipina beauty queens."
Arida candidly said, "I'm aware of it, actually. You know, I've got a lot of failings, especially on my communication skills and I'm doing my best to really express myself, to communicate myself, to convey a message to all of the people."
In any case, Headstart host Karen Davila emphasized that Arida has a degree in Chemistry from the University of the Philippines Los Baños. So, she’s no slouch in the brains department.
