Here's Borromeo's answer during the Q&A round:

Question: The Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs by the United Nations have targets that are set to be achieved by 2030. What have you done so far in terms of SDG initiatives?

"As someone who experienced the wrath of natural disasters, home is everything. I've worked tirelessly with Habitat for Humanity and the SDG's goal number 11 of sustainable cities and communities. It is through this volunteer work that I could see in the faces of the children how much they wanted to help, how much they wanted to be a part of the future. Because when it comes to sustainability, we must keep in mind that it is not only for the next generation, but to include them in the process," she said.

During the national costume portion, Borromeo wowed with a stunning costume inspired by the sea urchin designed by Axel Que.

Last year, Binibining Pilipinas International 2021 Hannah Arnold was the only Asian to have placed in the Top 15 semifinal round through the online poll.

The six Filipina winners in Miss International include Gemma Cruz (1964), Aurora Pijuan (1970), Mimilanie Marquez (1979), Lara Quigaman (2005), Bea Rose Santiago (2013) and Kylie Verzosa (2016).
