Two male foreigners who are making the Philippines as their second home after they won in pageants abroad have called on the youth to stay away from drugs because it will not lead them to anything good.
“Drugs will not lead you to anything good. Be healthy all the time. I always take care of myself always. God doesn’t like that so try to be good. Live longer life. Don’t think of yourself but think of other people who love you,” said Fernando Alvarez of Puerto Rico, 1st runner-up at 2016 Mr. World pageant held in the United Kingdom recently, during a press conference sponsored by Psalmstre Inc. in Quezon City.
Alvarez said that he keeps himself fit and healthy by hitting the gym all the time. “I do my cardio. I keep track of my micro-nutrients more than everything else and good hygiene.”
Filipino-Italian Andrea Biondo won second runner-up when he represented the Philippines in the second edition of the Mister Universal Ambassador held in Bali, Indonesia recently.
Biondo, who also won Mister Southeast Asia in the same male pageant,malso called on the youth to be role models and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
“Drugs will not make you look good and feel good. I try to stay away from drugs because I want to be healthy. I don’t smoke or drink. Let’s keep a healthy lifestyle,” said Biondo, who is also expected to sign a new endorsement deal with the popular beauty company headed by Jaime V. Acosta.
Biondo and Alvarez said that they intend to stay here in the Philippines and pursue careers in show business.
