The Pinay beauty queen is known for her strong words and opinion about certain issues.
Her recent Instagram story, on the other hand, revealed that there was a point she let others’ voice reign over her being.

However, Mariel de Leon did not bring home the crown. She took to Instagram the revelation that she regretted listening to other people’s words rather than listen to herself.
She also said that she felt pressured that she did not follow her heart and her own choice of what to do.
The beauty queen then shared an advise that she realized after that experience.
Mariel said “Do what you know would make you happy. Do what you feel is right for yourself. Live for you!”
This was initiated by a quote she shared from “Motivation for Life”.
Mariel de Leon is the daughter of veteran stars Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong.
After her stint in beauty pageants, she also ventured to acting following the footsteps of her parents.
Her debut movie was ‘Ang Panday’ with Kapamilya actor Coco Martin and fellow beauty queen Kylie Verzosa.
The said movie was an official entry during the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2017.
Mariel’s real name is Maria Angelica de Leon.
