I had some stigma and prejudice myself about matandang dalaga, about being an old maid in our society because I saw a lot of matandang dalaga / old maid growing up and it's not a pretty picture.

Lyra Sanchez is many things — CEO, beauty queen, and jet-setter to name a few — but most of all, she is single, in her forties, and is more than happy to share with us how she deals with the stigma of being an old maid.
