Pageant Training

My experience in John Robert Powers’ Pageant Training is transformative! It is really one step forward to being a queen! Maybe not a beauty queen but a queen of one’s own right. From being a plain Jane who is often hit by petty insecurities, I was able to realize better my self-worth and became very happy with who I have become. I learned that the validation that I am a beautiful person has to come first from me. In a nutshell, the most significant lessons I learned from the pageant training is to be poised and to be effective when I speak. JRP taught me that a queen always has to maintain poise at all times, whether standing waiting in line for the train or from dining in a formal setting. Her poise can go a long way and this should enable her to be spotted even from a distance. Seems like a lot of work but it is really a mindset to be developed. I used to dread public speaking as I was conscious of the people looking at me, but I learned that once on stage, I have to focus on the goal, which is to basically convey a message. Ever since, I always try to keep my composure during public speaking and direct my energy in delivering the message, which always has to makes sense and delivered in a clear manner. These two things were my main takeaway from JRP’s pageant training and I know these will make me the queen I am meant to be!

The reason why I joined this beauty pageant training is because I want to develop into my full potential and to enhance my talents and skills in engaging to bigger pageants in the future. As I experienced the two-day training, I met people from different walks of life that helped me to socialize better with other people. I realized that for you to beautify your physical appearance, you have to consider your inner beauty as well. Since I am planning to join bigger pageants, I am now more confident that I can compete and handle myself. I am very thankful and blessed to be a part of this pageant training.

I was indeed blessed to be one of the few students to be chosen for the sponsored beauty pageant training. This training helped me to be more confident and to feel good about myself. It changed how I behave and socialize with others. It helped improve the way I walk, talk and dress-up. It also made me realize that inner beauty is the most important thing. Since I’m a pageant enthusiast, I was able to use all I’ve learned in JRP and applied it to all the pageants I recently joined. This training really established a good foundation for me and will continue to apply everything I’ve learned as I join bigger pageants in the future.

The free pageant training last August 2016 was a surprise blessing for me. I never thought of being in the top 12 participants of John Robert Powers. At first, I was nervous of what will happen next and upon auditioning in the said event, the whole staff of John Robert Powers were accommodating and friendly. It was an excellent learning experience to be part of them. I feel at home with the teachers and staffs. They treated us like family. During the training, I have learned all the manners and etiquettes of a beauty queen. It was delivered very well. Kudos to JRP! Thank you for choosing me as one of the participants of your free pageant training. It was a fulfillment of a dream to be part of an institution who will mold you to your greatest!

It has been almost 6 months since I was selected to be part of Sponsored Beauty Pageant Training last August 2016. I didn’t expect that I will be chosen because I have no experience joining beauty pageants. What I know is that I have a dream to become one of the successful Filipina beauty queens. I am happy and delighted. I am able to learn and to gain knowledge on what the industry is doing. It is difficult to compete in beauty pageants because you have to be mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually ready. John Robert Powers taught me to believe in myself and to fill my self with confidence. Every woman has her own advantage but if you wear confidence and believe you can, definitely you will win the competition. My two-day journey for the Beauty Pageant Training was filled with so much confidence and fresh start of my journey to become the better version of myself. I treasure that day because it is the beginning of the new me. I started to think of ways and apply the lessons I learned during the training. I always tell myself that it takes time for me to become a beauty queen. I need to train myself and be ready for the battle of becoming the next Filipina beauty queen who will represent the country in international competitions. Thank you John Robert Powers! If you have not chosen me to be part of that Beauty Pageant Training, I would still be thinking of how I will be able to start my journey to be a beauty queen. Everything starts from a dream and I am amazed that that dream will come to reality. John Robert Powers will always be a part of that journey.

Being a participant in the sponsored Beauty Pageant Training was a huge milestone for me. It was an affirmation of my dream of becoming a beauty queen. The education I received from John Robert Powers gave me a strong foundation towards reaching my best self. It taught me how to have a winner’s mindset, that in everything that I do, I should strive for excellence. I had the privilege of being mentored by the country’s finest trainers who are experts in their field. They recognized my potential and they cheered me on as I take steps toward turning my dream into a reality. The past 6 months have been eventful for me in all aspects of my life. As the saying goes, “Success favors the prepared mind.” I have sought opportunities to continuously enhance myself so that I will be 110% ready by the time I compete at a beauty pageant. My daily routine is geared towards becoming 1% better than I was yesterday. I started leading a healthier lifestyle, incorporating workouts/exercises on a daily basis, having a proper diet and getting the right amount of sleep. I researched on learning the essentials of becoming a beauty queen – the right make-up, the proper walk and how to dress like one. I lived each day acting as if I were a queen already, being at my best at all times physically and mentally. I surrounded myself with people who encourage me to chase after my dream. I developed a positive self-image and it reflected with the way I live my life – finding beauty and purpose in everything that I do. I am thankful to John Robert Powers for providing such an opportunity. As a kid, I could only dream of being a product of JRP. If it were not for their Sponsored Beauty Pageant Training, I would not have the confidence to push myself out of my comfort zone and overcome my fears. Thanks to JRP, I am confidently beautiful with a heart.

Truly grateful for the opportunity! We were not only taught of the HOWs (social graces and etiquette, catwalk, applying make-up, projecting on the camera, etc. ). Most importantly, John Robert Powers made sure that we know our WHYs. Beyond fame and glamor, why are we willing to put ourselves into the subject of scrutinization? Pageants made me realize that I could do things I never thought I could. Through practice, preparations and utmost belief in myself, I can be whoever I want to be and even more of who already am. These experiences helped improve my career and personal life. I'm still a work-in-progress to be the woman I wanted to be and I think JRP has been a great part of my journey in achieving the best version of myself! Can't wait to join and win a national competition!

My JRP Training is one of the greatest highlights of my life. I owe the improvement of my self-esteem to them. They made me realize that I am worthy and capable of reaching my dreams for as long as I become confident and give my best shot on everything. Among all the other girls who auditioned for the Pageant Training, I was blessed to be chosen for the Top 12- I had no excuse for not trusting my capabilities because JRP believed in me, so I should believe in myself, too. As one of JRP’s alumni, I promise to make them proud of me by never giving up on my dreams.
