After Fernando’s stint with Mr. International in 2015, he continued his journey to the world of ramp modeling and has been featured in several magazine covers. In his hometown of Coamo, he is most remembered for having won Puerto Rico’s Best Male Model twice and for his appearance on international ramps upon invitation of renowned personalities in the fashion world.
He tried his luck and joined Mr. World 2016 upon the prodding of his Puerto Rican Manager Miguel René Deliz and Jaime Acosta, CEO and founder of Psalmstre Enterprises, Inc., maker of New Placenta for Men. His first runner-up finish has been the latest addition to his achievements. “New Placenta congratulates Fernando for his impressive finish at the Mr. World 2016 competition. Once again he has proven that he truly embodies what our brand stands for, that is, world-class appeal, competitive, and a dependable winner,” said Acosta during the press conference held for Fernando in Fishermall in Quezon City which was attended by pageant press, tri-media representatives and bloggers.
Acosta also said that Fernando will continue to undergo training with CREWorks Asia, PEI’s marketing and public relations arm, in support of Fernando’s pursuit of local showbiz career.
