After the international com­petition, Mugford said that she will go back to school and might pursue her singing career.

“I’ve always been someone who prioritizes my education. Right now, I am in school. On top of my singing ca­reer, pageant career, and school, I’ve always tried to find a balance. So af­ter this competition, it will be school and my singing career,” she said. (ROBERT R. REQUINTINA)
