Drama unfolded as Miss Earth 2012 Stephany Stefanowitz, resigned from her post
as chief operating officer of Miss Global Philippines hours before the staging of the pageant’s international edition on Thursday, October 22.
“I just cannot work with them anymore,” said an emotional Stefanowitz, during a press conference for Kapamilya actor Ejay Falcon organized by Psalmstre Enterprises, Inc.under its President and CEO Jaime V. Acosta in Sta. Mesa, Manila last Thursday.
The half-German, half-Filipino beauty queen said that she sent the organization an email and text messages informing them of her decision on Thursday morning. But she did not receive any reply from the group.
“I heard nothing from them anymore in spite of what I have done for them. But I still respect them and I still wish them all the best. To be honest, I was hurt,” said Stefanowitz, celebrity endorser for New Placenta soap by Psalmstre. She did not give other details.
Reporters who attended the press briefing were surprised as Stefanowitz poured her heart out on her decision to give up the post which she held for more than one year.
Stefanowitz worked for Miss Global Philippines in tandem with Pauline Sofia Laping, head of Miss Global Philippines Foundation, Inc. in 2014. Laping has not commented on the resignation of Stefanowitz.
