Miss Asia Calgary x Social Beer Haus Official Launch!

If I’m being completely honest, I never thought I would ever compete in a beauty pageant, much less become a titleholder. I admit that I was close-minded about the world of pageantry, believing that “pageant girls” were shallow to take part in something so outdated, allowing themselves to be perform such a narrow definition of femininity.

But when the opportunity presented itself to me, I received tremendous support and encouragement from my family and friends to participate in Miss Asia Calgary. Little did I know, this “Why not?” moment would open so many doors for me. It was unlike anything I ever imagined a pageant would be like.

My Miss Asia Calgary experience taught me how to truly appreciate the cultural and ethnic diversity we have here in Canada. It taught me to pursue my passions relentlessly and to share them, because they’re a gift to the world. It taught me how to become more confident in my own skin and that it’s okay to be yourself. And yes, it taught me how to walk properly in high heels, too! Can you imagine? I would have been deprived of this entire journey had it not been for the our sponsors who made our event a reality!

You might be wondering what post-pageant life is like. I can tell you that it's just as busy, if not even busier, then before! 😂 ⁣ ⁣ Since the big event, I've formed relationships with our many sponsors, including the Social Beer Haus team. They are true community champions and the reason behind the success of our recent pageant. I'm honoured to have spoken at their Official Launch and Media Night! ⁣ ⁣ Without their sponsorship, I would not be given the platform to advocate for women's health and representation of marginalized groups in the media. I'll always be grateful for the opportunity to represent the Philippines 🇵🇭 and I can only hope that I'll be half the role model that other women were before me! Maraming salamat and thank you very much! ⁣ ⁣ I can't wait to tell you what other shenanigans I've been getting into since the show! I'm taking on exciting media projects that I really think you'll love. Stay tuned xo ⁣ ⁣ Read my recent blog post on the Social Beer Haus launch + media night on my blog: www.lumenbeltran.com 💫 Link in bio!⁣ ⁣ @socialbeerhaus @missasiayyc

Oh, and if you’re a fan of Texas style barbecue and local beer, you’ll want to visit Social Beer Haus on Stephen Ave! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Love always,
