Miss Universe Bahrain Evlin Khalifa took to Instagram to thank her team for their support in her pageant journey.

On Thursday, Evlin penned a touching message to her walk trainer, makeup artist, stylist, designer—all of them Filipinos.

"In Bahrain, it might be a new opportunity for us to join the greatest competition of its kind @missuniverse but the wind beneath my wings are undoubtedly the best in pageantry," she said.

"This post is dedicated to my undying gratitude to my Filipino Team, without them - I can never call myself a queen."

Evlin also gave a shoutout to Miss Universe Bahrain Organization national directors Josh Yugen and Ian Borromeo.

"Both of them have given me their entire efforts, time and wisdom so I can stand on the Miss Universe stage as they help me become a true transformational queen," she said.

Evlin titled her post "For Filipinos" and told her team "Mahal ko kayo."

"Pilipinas, Maraming Salamat!" she closed.

The 71st Miss Universe coronation is on January 15 (Philippine time) at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Edwards was known for competing in drag pageantry (notably Miss Gay America 2010) before rising to international attention as a contestant on the fifth season of RuPaul's Drag Race, becoming a fan favorite during and after her time on the show.

She was crowned Miss Universe Sri Lanka in 2006, and represented her country at Miss Universe 2006. While on a modelling assignment in India in 2009, Fernandez successfully auditioned for Sujoy Ghosh's fantasy drama Aladin, which marked her acting debut.
