Meanwhile here are some trivia about Ruffa Nava:
Her family most especially her mother did not expect her to be a beauty queen one day because she looks and lives totally different during her growing up years.
She was conceived by her mother to an American actress Phoebe Cates and named her after Ruffa Gutierrez who was crowned Binibining Pilipinas World 1993 the year she was born.
During her younger years, Ruffa Nava was a dark or ebony young girl, skinny and boyish.
At an early age, Ruffa had to work just to have some money for school. She used to sell ice candy, ice pop, pork cracklings and peanuts at the Iloilo Fort San Pedro.
Inspite of this, Ruffa was never ashamed of their poverty instead she persevered just to provide food for her family.
After graduating in high school, Ruffa entered the modelling world to send her siblings and nephews to school.
One of the things she bought on her first salary was GI Sheets for their house to stop the leakage on their ceiling during the rainy days.
Ruffa is a member of the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) where the members include Miss International Kylie Versoza, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2016 Jennifer Ruth Hammond and Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina.
Indeed she has a beautiful life story that Ruffa Nava hoped has inspired many people not just women but people of all ages, color, shapes and backgrounds. Her life story will not in any way help her win the title but her astounding stunning performance in the competition fueled by her fire of determination and perseverance and motivation brought by all the insurmountable odds and adversities she had faced and at present experiences. Most of all her unwavering faith in God triumphs and achieves everything that will fulfill all her heart's desires. She is a legendary mythical phoenix who rises from all hardships, struggles and adversities to triumph and reach the top.
