When asked about her plans for the Miss International title in case she wins, Nicole responded: “The cause of Miss International is to promote understanding, especially among countries. From the relationship we already have between the Philippines and Japan, it’s great to have all these similarities and differences that we can embrace. During my potential reign, I would like it to be filled with activities to come and join. For example, Japan has an activity like the tea ceremony. I feel so blessed to experience that. But why don’t we make it more accessible to the public for everyone to enjoy and learn about the cultural differences we can embrace? It can also go the other way around with our cultures and traditions.”
