After the viral golden girl Margielyn Didal, we have more Filipinas waving Pinoy pride! For one there’s Fil-am ‘So You Think Can Dance’ 2018 winner Hannahlei Cabanilla. And yes, she totally proved that she CAN dance.
Then, there’re are also top trending models like Victoria’s Secret model Kelsey Meritt, and Asia’s Next Top Model contestants Jachin Manere and Adela Marshall. It’s really been a great week for Filipinas waving Pinoy pride to the whole world. And whether through their dancing, modelling, and even their sports, we’re SUPER proud of them all!
Get to know more about them with us as we round up their successes on this list!
1. Hannahlei Cabanilla
Hannahlei is the first Filipino-American to win the $250,000 prize as the grand winner of this season of “So You Think You Can Dance.”
Yes, Filipinos can DEFINITELY dance. And we know that you don’t even have to go out of the country to do this! If you want to see great Filipino dancers, why not join us for All The Way Up?
And you won’t only see Filipinas dancing in that competition, you’ll see Filipino guys and even kids strut their stuff with their talented crews too!

We know, we know. We were only talking about viral Filipinas waving Pinoy pride, but we can’t help but include Joshua too!
Blue’s Clues might’ve been a big part of your childhood, and now a Filipino is going to be part of other kids’ childhood too! That’s Filipino pride, alright.
Filipinas (and Filipinos) are very talented. And we’re sure that in the following days, there will be more of our kababayans who will be waving Pinoy pride for us! And don’t worry, we’ll keep you updated through our Facebook and Twitter @UDoUPh all the time.
