Miss Colorado Teen USA 2018 Contestants


Ysabelle A.
When I first received the invitation letter from Future Productions in the mail, I was speechless. Being that there are few Filipino idols in mainstream media, this was a rare opportunity for me to emphasize the beauty in diversity. I was excited to utilize this opportunity as a platform to voice what I stand for; however, that excitement quickly turned into anxiety as I began to wonder if I could afford the application fee. Now, I am proud to say that with the selfless support of Tracy Giang, River Rasmussen, Kate Donahue, Rowen Duyan Aya, Megan West, Precy Hilario, Jimmy Stephans, Lynn Concordia, and my two sisters Joanne and Lauren, I am one step closer to achieving my dreams of competing for the title of 2018’s Miss Teen Colorado.
