Ariella H. Arida (BS Chemistry 2010),bested 49 other candidates and was crowned Binibining Pilipinas 2013 on Sunday night April 14 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.

Arida, 24, impressed the judges in the question and answer portion where she was asked about what women can teach men.

Her winning answer: “One lesson in life that women can teach men is being sensitive. Men are more logical when it comes to decisions. They’re rational and straightforward. Unlike women, we use our hearts and we tend to get emotional when we make our decisions. Sensitivity is something that we women can teach to men.”

The 5’7” Arida, who hails from Alaminos, Laguna, said she loves the outdoors, especially the beach. She was also judged best in swimsuit.

Previously, she did ramp modeling after graduating from UPLB. She was also a lead majorette during her teenage years in Laguna.
