We are now on the 8th pair of Official Candidates for Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018. Here we have the representative of San Pedro, Laguna who happens to be the brother of a showbiz personality. And a sweet young thing from Angeles City, Pampanga who originally came from Sulu.
Meet Lord Kenneth Snell #TheAspiringActor and Brazmeena Abdurajak #BabyGirlPrettyWoman:
Some of you might already know that Kenneth has a distinct connection to showbiz. He is the younger brother of daring millenial actress Nathalie Hart (previously known as Princess Snell) and is just as keen on entering the entertainment industry and making a name of his own as an actor. But for now, he is focused on doing his best as one of the Official Candidates of Mr & Miss Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018. If he can swing a win, then that just might fast-track his plans of becoming a titled celebrity himself.
Kenneth does not mince words when talking about his personal life.
“I come from a broken family. My parents got separated when I was still a kid. At one point, I went to Australia to stay with my family. That is where I studied a culinary course in Sydney. But I also needed to earn my own keep so I started working as a house cleaner – believe it or not. At a young age, I learned to stand on my own two feet and become independent. The reason I went back to the Philippines is because it has always been a childhood dream to become a good actor – be it in film, stage or television. I hope to make that dream a reality if all my plans fall into place. Aside from this, I am an eternal adventure seeker because I get precious life lessons when getting out of my comfort zone.”
Kenneth is driven to say the least. And he is not about to give up on what he wants to achieve in life – be it sooner or later.
Braz is like the animated character “Moana” in that she is brave enough to go beyond the reef to see what lies ahead. She was born and raised as a Muslim in Sulu. But there came a time when she wanted to go outside the confines of her sheltered existence and made the bold move of transplanting herself to Angeles City, Pampanga to start anew. No fuss, no drama. Just a baby girl wanting to do and achieve more.
“Firstly, I’ll tell something about myself that everyone in the family and circle of friends already know. I am what others would call #Pabebe, clingy and happy go lucky to be exact. I am very affectionate in that I tend to hug a lot and start conversations with funny stories. In short, I love being loved. But don’t take me as a softie. I am not afraid to own up to my shortcomings, failures and defeat. Instead, I welcome them as opportunities to improve and evolve.
Being an Official Candidate of Mr. & Ms. Hannah’s World Tourism Philippines 2018 is both an honor and a blessing. I can finally connect with a lot of people, gain friendships and make an impact on their lives as well. I believe with all my heart that the true act of kindness is to live a life of usefulness and service to others.”
