The 27-year-old Boholana beauty is representing the country in the 14th edition of the Poland-based beauty pageant which will crown its titleholder at the Strzelecki Park Amphitheater on July 14.

In the latest developments of the competition, Pauline topped her “SupraChat” group on June 22, making her enter the Top 10 of the semi-final round of the online challenge.

The “SupraChat” challenge features delegates being divided into ten groups and individually undergoing interviews.

Winners will be determined from online views and the votes that they have garnered from their fans through the Miss Supranational app.
