The first quarter of a new year is usually the launching period for national beauty contests in the country like Bb. Pilipinas and Miss Earth Philippines. And in the US, the search has likewise started for their annual Miss Philippines US – the most prestigious Filipino-American pageant in the USA – which seeks to crown the lady who will both epitomize a woman of substance and prove that she is beyond beautiful.The mission of the organizers is to develop the finest Ambassadors of Goodwill and role models for the Filipino-American community. Just like reigning titleholder Janet Lyn Hammond (sister of Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2016 Jennifer Hammond) who continues to be primed for the task of advocating for its several causes like the Breast Cancer Walk, Historic Filipinotown Festival & 5K Run and ABS-CBN Foundation among others.
I encourage you, young and beautiful Fil-Ams to step up and go for this experience of a lifetime. Previous winners Nicole Guerrero (left photo, who has been staying here in the Philippines to fulfill her residency requirements for our nationals) and Jazlynn Dizon have only the best things to say about their respective turns and how life-changing the entire journey can become.
You will learn more about Miss Philippines US soon, and how this year’s edition (which is scheduled to have its finals on July 19) promises to be its biggest one yet!
