"What a journey this has been! A year filled with emotions, learning, friendship and growth. It has been an honor and a pleasure for me to be crowned as the Ms. United Nations 2009.
I have learned so many things through this event like knowing the importance of celebrating the United Nations Day and the reason why we are celebrating it. We are celebrating UN to keep peace throughout the world; to develop friendly relations among nations; to help nations work together to improve the lives of poor people, to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms.
This experience has changed my entire perspective on life. So many people have given me so much strength, inspiration and gift of dreams answered. I want to thank all the people who helped and supported me. To my friends, to my significant others, and most especially to my parents, you are my Inspiration and I love you
To my co-Divineans, please bear this in your mind. As what our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal, said. We, the CHILDREN, are the FUTURE of our NATION. We are not just young people; we are people and citizens of this world. We have the will, the knowledge, the sensitivity and the dedication. We are the children of the world, and despite our different backgrounds, we share a common reality. We are united by our struggle to make the world a better place for all. They call us the future, but we are also the present.
I, Mariell Chloe Trozado, stood with faith in my Maker a year ago, I stand with him now and thank Him for His blessing as I pass along a wonderful gift to a new Miss United Nations.
