GWENDOLYNE FOURNIOL PROFILE – Here are some details about 21-year-old Miss World Philippines 2022 Gwendolyne Fourniol.
21-year-old French-Filipino beauty Gwendolyne Bolivar Fourniol of Negros Occidental was crowned this year’s Miss World Philippines. The grand coronation night was held at the the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City early morning, Monday, June 6, where she bested out 35 other candidates.
The other winners are:
- Alison Black, Las Pinas City – Miss Supranational Philippines 2022

Fourniol, before partaking in this year’s pageant, was pursuing an Economics degree at Oxford Brooks in London in the United Kingdom. After graduation, she plans to seek internship in JP Morgan and is hoping to launch a French tutorial service in the Philippines.
Last year, she had a top 15 finish in the competition and this time around, she finally snatched the prestigious title. Her mother, coming from a poor family, was a former beneficiary of the ERDA (Educational Research and Development Assistance) Foundation. This is an organization that aims to send underprivileged children to school.
As a winner, the newly-crowned queen will also automatically wear corporate titles like Miss PAL, Miss Blue Water Day Spa, and Miss Megaworld. She will be taking home Php 500,000.00 and a year-long contract with the ALV Talent Management.
In the pageant, she was asked in the question and answer portion: How do we cope [with] an education deficit accumulated due to the pandemic?
And this is her winning answer:
“As an advocate of education, I do agree that during the pandemic we have suffered the most, but the children who have a lack of access to education have suffered the greatest. And working hand in hand with ERDA Foundation who empowered the marginalized Filipino, I believe by uniting benefactors and encouraging children and allowing them to go back to school especially during this pandemic will make this world a better place because education is the greatest weapon against poverty.”
