How did Mandy Liang end up competing for Miss Chinese Toronto 2013?
Throughout her childhood, Mandy never competed in pageants. It was only with the encouragement of her family and friends she decided to give it a shot. They knew Mandy had a good chance to win since she was both pretty, smart, and talented. In the eyes of Mandy Liang’s family, they knew that she was the perfect fit for a pageant but she wasn’t so sure about that. Before she could start, she would first need to practice her pageant walk, get informed on the new style trends and what her talent would be.
When Mandy Liang Miss Chinese Toronto decided to sign up for the pageant, her friends and family were ecstatic on this decision. Mandy Liang seeked out former pageant competitors in order to receive as much advice as possible before getting herself into something unfamiliar. The first tip they gave her was to seek out a pageant coach in order for them to prepare her for what was coming up. The coach gave her tips on:
- How to act: before and during the pageant, you must never show how nervous you are and you must never be unpleasant to be around.
- How to walk: walking the runway is something that is never easy for first time pageant competitors. It tales a lot of practice and good balance to have the perfect walk. It takes a lot of confidence from an individual to walk on the runway and thankfully this was something that Mandy Liang developed.
- How to dress: it is very important to make sure you stick with the latest fashion trends. Having a neutral dress is suggested for the interview when you sign up, a dark bikini is always suggested and the dress really depends on what colours suit you and on the latest fashion trends.
A pageant is definitely not for everybody but Mandy Liang Miss Chinese Toronto actually enjoyed herself. She learnt a lot about who she is, how to deal with pressure and how mean people can be in order to get what they want or be successful. The pageant industry takes a lot of practice and patience and not everybody has this.
