Bulgarian beauty and reigning Top Model of the World Margo Cooper recently visited the Philippines for a series of activities as part of her international model duties. We caught up with the 23-year old journalism graduate in Puerto Princesa to talk about having the world as her backdrop and the one place she hopes to visit with a special someone.
Where is home right now?
I stay on the plane most of the time. I travel a lot. I just came back from India and before that I was in Dubai and Istanbul. I’m not based anywhere now because of work and I’m very happy.
What’s your favorite out of all the countries you’ve visited?
I must really say the Philippines. Actually, I didn’t travel to anywhere new for a long time and I just went to the same destinations. But for sure out of the new places I’ve visited, the Philippines is my favorite and I cannot wait to come back and see more of it. I want to go and discover the different islands.
Have you had the chance to eat Filipino food?
I tried a meat dish with sauce but I don’t remember the name. What I love the most about Filipino food is that you can eat meat for breakfast. That’s perfect.
Where are you headed next after the Philippines?
I’m going to Moscow just for 5 days then I’m going skiing in France. After that, I’m going to London for 2 weeks.
Are you more of a city person or a beach person?
I’m a Gemini so when I have a choice, I cannot give an exact answer but when I’m in the city, I want to be at the beach and when I’m at the beach, I miss the city. I like cities that have everything like Dubai where I used to live.
Maldives. I think people go there when they get married.. so hopefully!
