RABIYA MATEO – The Miss Universe Philippines 2020 titleholder recently took to social media to share that she finally acquired a house for her family in Iloilo.
To recall, Rabiya represented the Philippines in the 69th Miss Universe pageant where she finished in the Top 21. She also pursued a career as a host and an actress.
On Sunday, Rabiya posted a video on her Instagram account where she gave a glimpse of the new property that she acquired for her family. She also recalled the hard times she and her family went through.
According to the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 titleholder, God has been so good to her and to her family.
She also said that she’s looking forward to improving their house in the coming years.
“Nandito ako ngayon sa labas ng kakabili kong bahay para sa pamilya ko sa Iloilo…” she said. “I’m getting kind of emotional kasi parang looking back then, it was so impossible for us to have a property kasi nagre-rent lang kami. Tapos no permanent address din, nakailang lipat din ng bahay.”
