Angeli Dion Gomez, 20, from Cebu, Philippines was crowned Miss Tourism International 2013/2014 during the 17th edition of the pageant in Putrajaya, Malaysia on New Year's Eve. This is the first time that the Philippines won back-to-back; Gomez's predecessor, Rizzini Gomez (no relation), is also from the Philippines. The 20-year-old, who wanted to be a film director, was ecstatic to bring back the crown to Philippines after the country won it last year.

"The first thing I plan to do is to meet my family whom I have not met for about one month and have a nice breakfast with them tomorrow," she told reporters. As the title holder, Gomez will be tasked as travelling ambassador in promoting informal international relations between countries to spread the message of peace, goodwill and friendship.
