Ariella Hernandez Arida[1] (born November 20, 1988 in Alaminos), also known as Ara Arida, is a Filipino fashion model and beauty titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe-Philippines 2013.[2]

Biography[edit]

Ara Arida was born in Alaminos, Laguna, Philippines to Public School Teachers, Estella (née Hernandez), of San Pablo, and Arlesito Arida, of Alaminos.[3][4] She is a graduate of the University of the Philippines Los Baños with a degree in Chemistry.[5][6] Prior to winning the title, Ara competed at Miss Philippines Earth 2012[7] and was a former Binibining Laguna contestant.

Pageants[edit]

Along with her modelling stints, Arida participated in the 2012 edition of Miss Philippines Earth,[7] but was unplaced.

Binibining Pilipinas 2013[edit]

Arida was crowned Miss Universe-Philippines by Miss Universe-Philipines 2012 and Miss Universe 2012 1st Runner-Up Janine Tugonon and garnered the award for Best in Swimsuit special at the Binibining Pilipinas 2013 pageant held in the Smart Araneta Coliseum on April 14, 2013. She was crowned along with Binibining Pilipinas-International, Bea Rose Santiago; Binibining Pilipinas-Tourism, Joanna Cindy Miranda; Miss Supranational Philippines, Mutya Johanna Datul; and 1st Runner-Up Pia Wurtzbach.[8][9][10][11] Judge, Philippine National Police chief, Director General Alan Purisima was the one who asked her final question. Her response was:

One lesson in life that we, women, can teach men is being sensitive. Because we all know that men are more logical when it comes to decision. They usually are more rational, straight forward. Unlike we, women, we use our heart and we tend to get emotional in some of our decisions. For me, sensitivity is something that we can teach men.

Miss Universe 2013[edit]

She represented the Philippines at the Miss Universe 2013 pageant at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia on November 9, 2013[12] where she won the 16th spot in the semifinals via online voting and eventually finished as 3rd Runner-Up. Philippines placed in the Top 5 for the 4th consecutive year. Arida was also the only delegate representing an Asian country to place in the Top 5 of Miss Universe 2013.[13][14]
