Mahalo to John Berger for inviting me to the Honolulu Star Advertiser today. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to talk about B.R.A.V.E Hawai’i and the Miss Latina Hawai’i Scholarship Pageant. All the staff that I met today were so nice.
Happy Holidays from the Miss Latina Hawaii Scholarship Program from our 2020 titleholders!
The last couple of years, we’ve conducted a Miss Photogenic competition with the Miss Hawaii contestants. Some pageants will let their photographer choose, others will hold a popularity poll. The fairest way was to let a group of professional photographers from across the country who do not know the girls vote for the contestant whom they feel is most photogenic based on their headshot. We create a gallery, number the contestants and ask the photographers to vote for one contestant. Poll is over a 24 hour period and the votes are tabulated.
This year’s Miss Photogenic is Miss Paradise Latina Aleksya Batoon. Congratulations Aleksya!
