Miss Teen Earth & Little Miss Earth Philippines

After we placed in the 6 major beauty pageants last year, from Megan Young who became the first filipina to win the Miss International title to Ariella Arida who bagged the 3rd runner up in the Miss Universe,  there is no doubt, Philippines is home of beauty queens.

Last May 26, I attended a seminar facilitated by Jonas Gaffud, beauty queen maker, for the Miss Teen Earth and Little Miss Earth Philippines.

According to Vas Bismark, president of Captured Dream Productions and the pageants’ trademark owner, Miss Teen Earth Philippines and Little Miss Earth Philippines aim to reach out to young Filipinas and inspire them into thinking that beauty is not only a physical attribute but also an act of love. We want to spread awareness about the different environmental issues, organize activities to help preserve nature and be able to mobilize Filipinos to act with love and purpose in creating a cleaner, greener environment.

Jonas Gaffud discovered/trained countless beauty queens from Miss Universe 2010 4th runner up Venus Raj to Miss World 2013, Megan Young.

In the event, Jonas shared some facts about her passion to help women see beauty beyond the pretty face. He taught the contestants on what real beauty is, how to walk like a beauty queen and how to answer questions thrown in beauty pageants.

The talk followed by question and answer portion was highlighted by the surprise visit of Shamcey Supsup. The girls and teens (and their moms) excitedly grabbed their phones to take a picture of the gorgeous beauty queen. Shamcey also inspired the girls by sharing her experiences in becoming a beauty queen.

Additional Information
About the Crown
The crowns bear a striking resemblance to the Miss World Philippines crown simply because they are all donated by the same designer. Both of the crowns will be passed on year after year to the most deserving young girls who embody beauty, talent, and love for Mother Earth. Just one look at the crowns and it is definite that many young girls will wish to wear it on top of their heads. Wearing a crown may mean differently from one girl to another and some may regard it as the closest thing to becoming a princess but more than its prestige and beauty, these crowns represent the opportunity for the ladies to reach a wider audience in promoting environmental awareness. It symbolizes the launch pad for future projects and campaigns that will bring the pageant’s core closer to its mission. In retrospect, crowns go beyond the splendor of sparkling gems. It is the purpose that lies beneath it that makes it all the more beautiful. (Source)
