Winwyn was crowned by Reina Hispanoamericana 2016 Maria Camila Soleibe of Colombia.


The Pinay beauty who was last to get asked a question in the Q&A portion gave a well-thought-out answer enough to impressed the judges.

She was asked: "How would you promote Hispanic Americana culture with language barriers?"

Here's Winwyn's answer:

Language can be learned, but the will and determination to contribute something to the organization cannot.

It has to come from the heart and it has to be natural.

I believe that kindness is a universal language. If you treat people with tolerance, patience, and love, you will understand each other.
Hispanic culture is not about language only.

It's about love for God, love for country, love for history and culture, and love for family.

As a Filipina with a unique heritage, I have instilled that.

I am ready to promote the Hispanic culture, not just in Asia, but in the whole world.

It is time to celebrate the Hispanic culture. It is meant to be celebrated.

Marquez is the daughter of actors Joey Marquez and Alma Moreno, and the niece of former Miss International Melanie Marquez.
