8 Nov – Kylie Verzosa recently expressed elation over the honour of winning Best Actress at the 2022 Distinctive International Arab Festivals Awards (DIAFA) for her performance in "The Housemaid".
The former beauty queen, who attended the event held in Dubai, UAE, likened the award to winning Miss International again like she did in 2016.
"Six years ago, when I won the international title for the Philippines, it was such a joyous moment for me," she said in her acceptance speech. "Today, I feel like winning another crown, and this time, for Best Actress. Nothing ever beats the feeling of winning something for your own country because of your own hard work."
Kylie also dedicated her win to all Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) whom she said have sacrificed their time and happiness for the sake of their families.
The actress also took to social media to share about her win, writing, "Dreams do come true. Thank you @diafaofficial proud to represent the Philippines."
It was last month that DIAFA announced that the actress will be honoured with the said accolade for her performance in the Roman Perez Jr movie.
