The 18-year-old junior BS Accountancy student of Foundation University won this year’s Ms. JPIA, besting four other candidates in the search held Sunday night at the FU Sofia Soller Sinco Hall.

Edmerl Abad, a newbie in beauty pageants, wowed the judges not just with how she carried herself during the competition, but also with her answer to the final question: “How do you promote accountancy as a profession?”

Abad said she would “lead to build an advocacy, an act that could spread the importance and essence of credibility, reliability, accountability, and transparency since the course is the foundation of goodness and betterment and an instrument to stopping illegal project alignment, deficits, and corruption.”

In winning the crown, Abad replaced Ms. JPIA 2012 from St. Paul University.

Apart from the pageant being the highlight of the celebration, the two-day activity was also boosting with blazing series of ball games and a burst of mind-enhancing competitions that were categorically divided into three: the Major Events, the Non Academics and the Academics. Some of the activities included the modern dance contest, Kalokalike, Eco-Dress Fashion Show, T-Shirt Design, Minute to Win It, and the Acoustic competition among others.

On July 20-21, 2013, the stage became a battlefield for those who got the guts. This two-day celebration of the Accountancy Week has always been one of the most challenging parts of being a JPIAn. It’s that time of the year where excitement and amusement is evident, and student are steaming up and displaying their hidden talents.

After the two-day celebration, Foundation University ranked 2nd in the overall competition next to Silliman University.

Sponsored by the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants, these events were held not only for the competition, not for those who were striving to be the best. JPIA week is held “to make new friends, to discover talents, to develop unity, and most importantly, to have fun while learning.” (Paul Bajas)
