Jen Vinzon on Daughter Lala’s Pageant Journey: “It’s Just the Start”

Jen Vinzon says that the family is proud of Lala’s accomplishments in Binibining Pilipinas despite failing to make it to the Top 12.

Lala Vinzon may have not made it to the Top 12 in the recent Binibining Pilipinas competition but for her mom Jen Vinzon, the participation is just the start.

Speaking to Modern Parenting after the competition, Jen told her daughter not to be discouraged about the results.

“Sabi ko nga, huwag ka mag-give up. Maybe it’s not your time now pero sa nakikita ko, parang more improvement pa,” Jen said of her daughter’s performance.

Jen said that in these types of competitions, those who join should not lose hope because it’s all about timing.

“Hindi ito ang dahilan para mag-stop ka. So it’s up to her kung gusto pa niya ipagpatuloy itong pinasok niyang career. But for me, dapat niya ipagpatuloy para masabi niya this is not the end This is just the start lang.”

Lala won the Miss Talent award which was given during the coronation night.

Rest time for Lala

With the competition behind them, Jen said that the family, including husband Roi Vinzon, plans to bring Lala for a quick vacation with Baguio as the itinerary.

“Yung talaga ang unang-una [sa] list niya na after this journey, bakasyon muna kami sa Baguio,” she said.
