The Q&A Mentor/Specialist of Aces & Queens – Atty. Nad Bronce – has now left the beauty camp.
I think it is through my training sessions with candidates that I developed my passion for mentoring. I have to constantly learn and relearn skills, styles and strategies throughout my 18 years of being the Q and A trainer for A&Q. Haha. I have to love challenges as I need to constantly challenge myself. Overall, this has been a learning experience. More than that, however, it is the friendships formed that are more invaluable. Thank you to all former and present AQ members for the friendship! Thank you, Mama J and Mama Ru! Direk Jeff, Direk Ces, and Tito Gerry, thank you for “discovering” me. Haha. I am grateful. I am most thankful though for all the girls I have trained. To paraphrase Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach’s words, it’s the candidates- the girls- who are A&Q’s legacy. I am forever thankful for the opportunity to meet all of you and though my contribution is just a little, I am happy to have been part of your lives. Proud of all of you! Lately though, I’ve been thinking about new challenges in legal and policy work. Yes, the responsibility of training girls and see them grow into confident women is an honor, but I hope to focus on these new challenges for now. So with a heavy heart, I have to leave A&Q. 😦 You have been a family! Thank you, Aces and Queens! My gratitude to all of you! #acesandqueens

Will our 7th Miss International be crowned soon? Will Atty. Bea Patricia Magtanong be the one to bring us that honor and follow the glorious trail started by the six women above?
We will all know during Tuesday night’s finals of Miss International 2019 LIVE from Tokyo Dome City Hall in Bunkyo district, Tokyo, Japan.
Ever wondered how the romance between Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa And Actor Jake Cuenca started?

I just love her equal dedication to this particular cause, aside from HIV Awareness. And the video above for World Health Organization further strengthens the involvement.

Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa is going beyond the beauty queen-turned-actress tag. She is now a Filipina Superhero as EPIK Studios launches her as #Osyana – “Beautiful, mysterious, wild and free. The ocean is all I want to be.”
At the History Con 2018 happening at the World Trade Center, our Queen was introduced as the lead star in the movie to be made based on the graphic novel by Charles Santino and illustrated by Jim Jimenez. Straight from the Filiipino folklores of the Badjaos, comes the fearless Sea Siren “Osyana”!
The movie will be have principal photography rolling in by 2019, with a projected release in 2020. Comic books are now available in your favorite news stands/book stores.

In what is considered the most unique three-way pageant with a cause, the Press Launch of Lhive Free Redvocates | The 2018 Search for the HIV/AIDS Advocacy Ambassadors was held at the Penthouse of West Avenue Suites with the presence of Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa, Beauty Queen Maker Rodgil Flores, Dr. Jose Gerard Belimac of DOH and Ms Marionne Callo-Briones of ICI Asia to explain more about this brand-new endeavor spearheaded by the Department of Health Philippines.
There will be three (3) categories: Male, Female and Transgender Women that effectively means having three (3) top winners during the finals set for September 28 at the SMX Convention Center Manila.
This tri-pageant aims to find the most committed individuals who will speak for the HIV/AIDS Awareness campaign of the DOH. But it will still run the usual course of a pageant, with a marked focus on the ability of each candidate to become creative influencers to different sectors of the society.
“The Lhive Free Redvocates is a search for exemplary individuals who are willing to be champions of this campaign. Just like Ms. Verzosa, they will help spread information about HIV and AIDS and promote safe sex with the goal of preventing new cases.” said Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III.
As a three-way pageant, men, women and transgender women are free to join LHIVE FREE Redvocates. It is open to individuals aged 20-26 years old who have good communication skills and are passionate about the campaign’s cause.
