My Chinoy Inspiration: Up for the challenge?


This Wednesday, the twenty-four Mr. & Ms. Chinatown PH candidates have yet again shown how they can continually break barriers and get creative despite the online setting!


For the initial part of their second challenge, the candidates were tasked to do a photo challenge depicting their culture and heritage, using items that remind them of being Chinoy. With that, the goal of this challenge was to not just take Instagram-worthy shots, but, like everything in the pageant, it roots back to the four pillars of the RISE Movement: Rebuild, Inspire, Strengthen and Empower – and in this case, the candidates aimed to inspire others to be resilient, innovative and to be proud of who they are.


Scroll down to see the candidates’ entries for Challenge 2A: Creativity! If you’re interested in seeing this plus more Mr. & Ms. Chinatown 2020 news and updates, don’t forget to check out their Instagram @mrmschinatownph!
