Some beautiful Filipinas take years to even get the opportunity to represent the country in an international beauty competition abroad. Not Lucia Alcantara. This 16 year-old is getting ready to wear the Philippine sash in Miss Teen International 2017 to be held in Yangon, Myanmar from May 22-29.
Lucia may not be barely legal yet, but she already facial features and a height (5’9″) that qualifies her for the said contest for teens. And this early, the handling team (led by Macky Balisacan) is making a good job of preparing her for the challenge up ahead. It may not be a big beauty derby yet, but the experience will definitely benefit her in the long run.
Best of luck to you, Lucia Alcantara!
