PBB CE2 Housemate #11: Zara Aldana
Zara Aldana, formerly known as Zephora Mayon, is PBB’s â€œPoor Beauty Queen.â€ After winning the crown as Mutya Ng Pilipinas, she battled her way across discrimination for not being ‘sosyal’ and fluent in English like the typical beauty queens that we know. Unfortunately, the situation led to her relinquishing her crown. But now, as Zara embarks on a new journey in her life, she bravely tells all her detractors that she is out to prove them wrong.
Zara comes from a poor family. She never met her real father and instead grew up with a step father who treated her as their own. Her mom suffered from an illness that prevented her from acquiring a regular job. The whole family is supported by relatives who send them money from abroad.
Joining beauty contests is not new to Zara, not to mention that it also runs in her blood (Michelle Aldana, also a Mutya ng Pilipinas holder, is said to be a relative). From elementary to high school, Zara has already won numerous campus titles which has helped a lot with the family finances. In fact, she took home the Ms STI International and Bb. Las PiÃ±as crown in 2006 and was granted full scholarship to college.
She created waves after winning the Mutya ng Pilipinas-Asia Pacific title in 2007. However, in less than two months of her reign, Zara was reported to have given up the crown. Many reasons came up as to why she abdicated her throne: discrimination within the organization, unclear contract, lack of support from the organizers and â€˜fatigueâ€™ from the sudden lifestyle change.
