Old yearbook photos give us a glimpse into the character of people before they were famous: Were they studious? Were they honor students? In the case of newly crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo, she was both. 

Mateo graduated high school from the Saint Candida School in Iloilo, one of the institutions around the world run by the Congregation of Hijas De Jesus.

Her yearbook writeup reads: 

“A girl with glamorous smile. Every boy is mesmerized with her sophisticated looks. The darling of Year IV-Saint Agnes. Those shimmering tan skin catches everyone’s attention especially the boys. She has a towering height. When she starts speaking, you should ready your handkerchiefs for your nose might bleed. She is a very sensitive person so be careful with the words you choose. She is sweet like sugar. That’s what makes Rabiya “Byang”: Brilliant, Youth, Admirable, narcissist and Gorgeous (sic).”

Mateo’s achievements were first honorable mention, best in communication, and performer of the year.
