This is Miss Asia USA's 25th year. In 2013 we are utilizing social media to expand our reach and influence our growing Asian Communities in Southern California.
The Asian Communities are a huge economic force and growth in population in the last few years will soon surpass other population groups.
Miss Asia USA is but a few pageants that are cross cultural, although the Asian part of the name may imply only Asian countries, it includes all of Asia, including Siberia, Russia, Iran, Turkey , etc.
The only countries excepted are decidedly European, such as England, Spain. Italy. etc.
The pageant will take place in late November of 2013. Last year it was held at the Redondo Beach Performing arts Center.
The event was the highlight of many months of rehearsals, in which the contestants were taught posing, standing, walking, public speaking, They were invited to many social functions meeting many many influential members of the community,participating in fashion shows thanks to many of the sponsors. Participation in the event could be a life changing experience. Although one could call it a beauty pageant, it focuses on the participants ability to communicate effectively, and to impress the panel of judges with the community service aspect of being a respected member of society. The participants will represent their cultural countries although they may be US citizens, this allows more than one member to represent their original countries.
This is an opportunity for talented hairstylists and makeup artists to network with the participants, talented clothing designers also have an opportunity to work with the participants for their formal gowns. This can be a networking event. We will have many events, including fashion shows, fund raisers throughout this year 2013, MUAs and hairstylists are encourage some events and meet the participants, as well as clothing designers, vendors are welcome to sponsor and promote their business. This is an international event as participants can come from as far away as Korea, China, Japan, India , Vietnam, Taiwan. And many many others
