Following the devastating Super Typhoon Haiyan sweeping across the central Philippines, Miss Universe 2013 contestant Ariella Arida posted two Instagram videos, showing her support for the victims of the storm.
In one she used a popular saying in the Philippines, “The Filipino spirit is waterproof,” which was coined in 2012 after Typhoon Grener struck the country.
She also dedicates her showing in the upcoming Miss Universe pageant to everyone in her home country. In the second video, she has three other Miss Universe contestants say the words “Pray for the Philippines” in their native tongues.
