    Hello, everyone! Yana here! I have some exciting news to share with you all, and I thought I’d write about it in this post.

    What is Miss Supranational?

    Miss Supranational is an annual international competition, usually hosted in Poland. 🇵🇱✨ If I win the national contest in Japan, I will compete against representatives from other countries on the global stage this July to showcase women’s true beauty and strength. 

    While Miss Universe is the most famous competition, there are many different beauty pageants. I will be competing for Miss Supranational Japan this time. The other major competitions include Miss World, Miss International, and Miss Earth.

    My Pageant History

    ➤ 3rd place in Miss Universe Japan

    ➤ 2nd place in Miss Supranational Japan

    Yes, this will be my second time participating in Miss Supranational Japan!

    Why Did I Decide to Participate in Miss Supranational?

    I’ve participated in many beauty contests. However, despite my track record, I’ve never won a title. When I participated in Miss Universe Japan, I trained for a year in the Philippines and was fully prepared. Unfortunately, I did not win, which was a deeply frustrating experience for me. 😭

    However, I am currently working as an actress in the Philippines and want to inspire others by taking on this final challenge!

    I moved to Japan when I was 10 years old and had a tough time during my elementary school years because I couldn’t speak Japanese. During those difficult moments, Filipino TV shows encouraged me. I believe entertainment is something that “never gives up and gives courage and hope.” As an entertainer, I want to show everyone that if you don’t give up, you can gradually make progress! With this, I’ve decided to participate in my final beauty contest. ✨

    The Best Creative Team!

    Speaking of beauty pageants, one crucial element is the photos shared on social media. I’ve brought together an incredible creative team, and we managed to take some fantastic photos! How do you like this one? 😉 

    The theme was to express the strength and beauty of women. You can find a video from the shoot here; please take a look! 🙏🏽
