Duty calls for Chaiyenne Huisman! Now that she’s back in the Philippines, we got to meet the reigning Miss Asia Pacific International and witness her multilingual ability first hand (more on that in a bit).
Long before she became a beauty queen, Chaiyenne was living her best life outdoors. Back home, she was a competitive show jumper. She is also a certified scuba diver.

Chaiy, as many call her, entered her first pageant at just 17 years old. Now 20, the tall blonde is ready to take on as many projects as possible until she returns to her native country of The Netherlands.
If there’s one interesting bit her MAPI stans know, its that she loves languages. Chaiy is fluent in English, Spanish, and Dutch. She understands French and German, and is currently learning Swedish.

In celebration of National Flirting Day, we put both her linguistic ability and knowledge of pickup lines to the test. Watch as we teach her one in Filipino, too!
