#AbreezaFashionForum invited bloggers and some media to a suppose to be intimate event with Monika Sta. Maria. I saw her on TV every now and then during her ANTM journey but I was not an avid follower but I was rooting for her secretly because she's a Filipina. I mean who doesn't support a fellow kababayan?

Monica Sta. Maria is the 1st runner up of Cycle 3 Asia's Next Top Model. She along with 13 contenders from different regions in Asia competed from March to June this year.

She shared to us her struggles, stories and insights about different topics. Like what a model should be, what a model should do to stand out, what she felt when she didn't win. 

I like how honest she was telling her fans that she was really sad when she didn't win. I mean who would be happy when your dream is just one step away but you're a step short. She also told us that unlike when she was on court during her varsity days, she didn't feel any nervousness on the runway.
She has a couple of advices that's inspiring like don't try too hard, be confident and comfortable with what you're wearing and lastly that your dreams is in your hands. 

Fashion related questions were asked like what her fave dress among all the dresses she tried, she said she liked the Alex Perry dress. Monica doesn't have a specific fashion icon, she wears what she feels like wearing on that day. 

The best advice she gave was Beauty is finding happiness in small things.

After that, she had a meet and greet session with her fans and davao bloggers would not let the opportunity pass without a group photo with her.
