Filipino-American model Kelsey Merritt received confirmation that she has aced her audition to become one of the models of the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Merritt is breaking new grounds as she becomes the first Filipino model to walk Victoria’s Secret runway.
An elated Merritt shared a photo on social media and captioned it “We did it, Philippines! I’m walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2018! I can’t believe this!”
While this is a source of pride for many Filipinos, a netizen said this is not groundbreaking as others think. She mentioned internationally-known Filipinos such as Pia Wurtzbach, Catriona Gray, and Liza Soberano but pointed out that they all don’t look Filipino like Merritt.
