Laura Lehmann's dream of becoming a beauty queen finally came true early Monday morning when she was hailed as the 2017 Miss World Philippines.
You can say that for many avid sports fans, Lau was already a queen in her own right, but now, she has a diamond-encrusted crown to show for it.
You've seen her on TV as the reporter and now you've seen her as the victor, so let's delve deeper into some of the things that separate Lau from past beauty queens.
1. She was an Ateneo courtside queen
Let's start with the basics. Laura Lehmann's rise to prominence started to truly come about when she made her courtside debut for the Ateneo Blue Eagles back in season 77.
2. She's a hosting pro
Aside from being a courtside darling for Ateneo, Lau was also taken in last year as the panel-at-large for the now-defunct V-League.
That's when her pro hosting chops was tested during her kulitan moments with the players (especially the Ateneo Lady Eagles) that just brought must-see T.V. for any volleyball fan.
3. She's also a FUN travel show host
We're sticking to the hosting theme here, but this time, Lau wears a different cap, showing her other interest as a host for Lifestyle Network's travel show 'Listed'.
It may be a different brand of TV altogether, but one thing remains the same: Lau is still her goofy yet adorably inviting self, that never fails to draw in and entertain viewers.
Case in point:
4. She's in a relationship with San Miguel guard Von Pessumal
#VonLau has been going strong since their days in Ateneo. A basketball star and his school's courtside queen just makes for a perfect couple, right? Absolutely.
And Von has nothing but sweet things to say about the beauty queen. In an interview with ABS-CBN Sports way back in 2015, the former Blue Eagle bared:
“She cares a lot. She worries a lot to a fault. But it’s not a bad thing, you know. Gano’n talaga ang pagkatao niya, eh. From her beautiful eyes, you can instantly say that she cares.”
5. She's a former Philippine national softball team player
More than beauty, more than brains, Lau has proved a long time ago that she's a competitive athlete as well.
Lau's consistent success in anything she tries is really just a testament to her upbringing and undying drive for excellence. So no one can really be blamed for thinking that the future looks even brighter for this wide-eyed gal.
