She knew it was in her...
I used to be shy and unable to hold my own. In 2011, at the age of 19, I competed in my first pageant in order to prove to myself that I could do it. After that, I was hooked. I competed in pageants annually until 2017, and then officially retired from pageantry. Through the years, I’ve gained a set of pageant sisters, self-presentation skills, self-confidence, and a platform to give back to my community. I hope to give an even better opportunity to other young women in the community through this pageant.
The Miss Chinese Chicago pageant was founded in 2018 and born out of the desire for more Chinese female leaders in the community. Innovative thinking, collective and inclusive mindset, and kindness are all traits we hope to foster in the next generation of Chinese American female leaders.
Our contestants do not pay any fees to apply or participate. They are also not required to find event sponsors. We hope to have an inclusive pageant that allows young women to showcase themselves without being burdened by costs. Therefore, sponsorship is solely what makes this pageant possible. If you’d like to learn how to sponsor, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
