The much-awaited pageant officially started with the press presentation of the candidates’ last November 13 at Edsa Shangri-La with with forty-two beautiful and empowered women from all over the world vying for the crown.
The mother of all beauty pageants Miss Asia Pacific lnternational (MAPI) in Asia returns in the Philippines. It has been around since the 1960’s and is now under new ownership and management. The organization has positioned itself to be a pedestal for women who want to be the voice of celebrating beauty and harmony in diversity – empowering women to embrace and exercise their individuality, and encourages them to respect and appreciate those of others.
More than having the girls compete with each other, the organization is focused on forging solidarity among the girls and inspiring them to be epitomes of a strong and confident woman who is proud of herself, her culture, and everything that makes her what she is. This is not just another beauty pageant – this is a program that hopes to create ambassadors that ignite positive change in the global community.
Miss Asia Pacific international was in hiatus for a decade and was re-launched last year with the 22-year old Tessa Helena Le Conge from the Netherlands taking the crown.
The event took place at the renowned Sheridan Beach Resort & Spa in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Now she is back in the country to tum-over the title and the spearheading of the organization’s advocacy to the next MAPI queen.
