Kelsey Merritt making history for the Philippines is making her Filipino supporters ooze with pride, including us!
You’ve heard of the very stunning Kelsey Merritt and how she’s making her Filipino fans grin from ear to ear with her achievements. But with the massive hype caused by the Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2018, we just need to talk about our very own Kelsey Merritt making history for her country!
Who is Kelsey Merritt?
Kelsey Merritt is a 22-year old Filipino-American and is the first Filipina to walk the runway of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! (Really, how fabulous is that?)
She graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts major in Communication Arts at the Ateneo de Manila University despite flying in and out of the country for her modeling career. She rejected modeling training and offers in the US in order for her to finish her studies as a full-time student. Yup, our girl certainly is beauty and brains!
Her huge achievement as the first Filipina to be a part of Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show definitely caused a great hype amongst the Filipino crowd.
The Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2018
Ladies and gents all over the globe await the world-class runway of The Victoria Secret Fashion Show every year! And we are amongst the millions of viewers who are always so excited for this event as stunning ladies grace us with their catwalk extravaganza.
Every year, Victoria’s Secret show brings its famous bejeweled Angels together. But last November 8, things were very different for us as our very own Kelsey Merritt walks the runway representing the Philippines.
And Kelsey Merritt generously gifted us with a lot of BTS and updates of the much-awaited catwalk! Let’s have a recap on that, shall we?
The post that hyped us all:
The entire country was abuzz when Kelsey posted this one! We know we went nuts! And we surely can’t stop seeing reposts of this photo all over various social media platforms.
Farewell, Adriana (huhuhu we’re not crying, you are!)

Well-deserved VS Angel title!

This song from first segment of the fashion show always brings me to tears… So powerful. “When the sharpest words wanna cut me down I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out I am brave, I am bruised I am who I'm meant to be, this is me” #VSFashionShow @victoriassecret ❤️❤️❤️
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Yep, that song is for you, Kelsey! You are definitely where you’re meant to be! We’re just so proud! #PinoyPride
Stunner! We are definitely swooning!
