In preparation for the pageant the participants are enrolled in our Modeling and Refinement Program which focuses on the areas of self -esteem, social behavior, public speaking, etiquette, and cultural knowledge. The winner of the pageant is chosen by a panel of judges based on individual interviews, artistic presentations, projection, and participation in the course. This is not a contest of physical beauty, in the end it is a showcase of what they have learned and who they have become through this intense learning process.
