Amid the barrage of online assaults, Miss Universe Philippines 2016 Maxine Medina chose to remain silent, keeping her composure like a beauty queen should.

On Wednesday, she left a message for everyone, fans and bashers alike, on her Instagram page.

“Embrace your flaws and speak from your heart because if you do you’ll never get lost on the path that you choose. #missuniverse2016,” she said.

Embrace your flaws and speak from your heart because if you do you’ll never get lost on the path that you choose. #missuniverse2016

Her post was lauded by netizens.

Medina finished at the Top 6 of the 65th Miss Universe held in the Philippines last Jan. 30. Netizens had a heyday blaming her “unsatisfactory” answer for her failure to land in the Top 3.  Clarizel Abanilla

    Alam na namin yan, Maxine. We loved you, Maxine, we had absolutely nothing against you. We had only wanted you to use an interpreter para yung sagot mo eh ma-formulate mo sana ng maayos. Kasi kung pag-iisipan mo ang sagot mo and at the same time kailangan bigkasin mo pa ito sa wikang hindi ka naman masyadong at home ay makakabawas talaga yan sa lalim ng naiisip mong sagot. Better luck next time. And next time use an interpreter na lang talaga. Good luck, ‘teh!
    At sana yung mga susunod sa iyo ay matutong tanggapin ang katotohahan na hindi dapat magpilit sumagot sa English kung di naman talaga enough ang kakayahan.

    Kaya pala natalo si Maxine, yon sagot niya galing sa puso at di sa ulo or utak…tsk tsk tsk.

    So that means to say ang may kasalanan niyan ay ang pumili sayo to represent us in the Pageant. Baka naman gawa ng “palakasan” kaya dahil kaibigan ka ni Pia? Knowing though you ae dead gorgeous wala ka namang utak napili ka pa rin. Besides to tell the nation you have four year degrees in College palpak naman ang sagot di ba sapak sa mukha yan ng karamihan sa Pinoy. O baka naman ang may kasalanan yung mga teacher dyan? You were saying speak from the heart yes you did and that’s how exactly who you are..

    okay na top 6 maxine, you did your best. dapat maintindihan ng lahat na hindi naman karaka raka nade-develop ang wit at kagalingan lalo na pagsagot sa lengwahe na di ka naman bihasa. it’s water under the bridge para pag diskuyunan kung ano dapat mong sinagot, inaamin mo naman ang weakness mo, nasa iyo na na kung gusto mong mag improve lalo na kung magbabasa ka ng iba’t ibang tema lalo na current events. importante sa isang tao ang aware sa nangyayare sa kapaligiran at walang tama o maling opinyon pagdating doon basta alam mo sinasabi mo.

    hindi pa rin hadlang ang kahinaan mo para ka umangat, just find your niche girl!

    That means the Philippine Miss Universe representative has no knowledge of what is going on in this world that affected the environment, humanity, countries, peace, women, men , children, technologies and many more in the last 10 years. Pick one global topic that’s a common problem or solution. That’s supposed to be one of the qualities of every Miss Universe that represents her country in order to have a chance of winning. If you don’t have it, the Philippines should train one and pick the right person. You are not there just to represent. You are there to win it attitude.
