Here's a brief history of the international pageant as stated at Wikipedia:
The pageant began in 1991 as Reina Sudamericana (South American Queen) in Bolivia and was participated by 10 countries which are restricted from South America until 2003. The first winner of the pageant was Patricia Godói of Brazil. In 2004 participants from Panama and Costa Rica in Central America were invited; and in 2006 beauties from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico and  Spain joined. By 2007, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and the  United States were added, the pageant changed its name to "Reina Hispanoamericana".
In 2008, Carribean Islands Curaçao and Haiti were added in the pageant.

The Philippines is the only Hispanic country in Asia that made a Filipina debut in the pageant.

Winwyn hopes that like her aunt Miss International 1979 Melanie Marquez, to bring home an international pageant crown. Goodluck Winwyn!
