Ira Patricia Malaluan for Bb. Pilipinas 2022

Binibini 19 Ira Patricia Malaluan may not be the most hyped contestant but she is definitely one of the girls to watch out for. Her performance at the recently concluded press presentation proved that she is indeed a dark horse.

Born and raised in Candelaria, Ira is representing Quezon Province in Bb. Pilipinas 2022 pageant. She is a Tourism and Travel Services Management graduate of Batangas State University. 

Definitely not just a beauty queen, she is also a queen of charity and goodwill. She is the founder of "A Thousand Journey Project", an organization that is willing to help and extend love to every people in different walks of life. In December 2021, they distributed 276 food packs for homeless people in Metro Manila. They also distributed school supplies for the children of Cagayan De Oro last February 2022. She is also an entrepreneur and own a pet supply chain called ‘WerePawse’ that sells affordable pet supplies nationwide.

The 5'7" stunner used to fly as flight attendant for Philippine Airline Express. She also worked as food coordinator of Senator Allan Cayetano's "Sampung Libong Pag-Asa Project" and a former Customer Service Manager of Cayetano's restaurants in BGC.

This is her first national pageant. Prior to that, she was joining schools and provincial competitions. She was crowned Miss Batangas State University 2018, Southern Tagalog Regional Association of State Universities and Colleges Festival Queen – Region IV 2018. She was first runner-up in both Miss Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges 2018 Binibining Niyogyugan-Quezon Province 2019 regional pageant.

Ira met some pageant press during her intimate meet and greet event on Saturday, July 9. 

She revealed in an interview that she was hesitant at first in joining Bb. Pilipinas knowing this is a prestigious pageant aside from being financially demanding.  On why she joined, she said, "I believe God called me to do this. I believe this is my calling. I'm just doing and enjoying this journey because I know God will do everything for me," she said.

She loves to speak up and voice out her thoughts. Coming from a broken family, she had experienced a lot of challenges growing up. She wanted to share these stories and inspire a lot of people through this platform.

She wanted to represent the country in an international pageant. But if given a chance, she is aiming for Bb. Pilipinas-Globe crown.
