Miss Asia Hawaii Mission Statement

In 1989, beloved Rita Paet launched her dream that would influence so many others. She created the Miss Asia Hawaii Pageant through her passion for pageantry that highlighted the glamour, excitement and vitality of Asian pageantry in the islands. She worked very hard to build this pageant, through her company, All Promotions, Inc., and she inspired so many people. Rita was special. She was adored and well loved by everyone. In part, the the Miss Asia Hawaii Pageant was revived to honor her legacy, and with the ideals of empowering the young Asian women of the islands of Hawaii to develop a deeper understanding of their heritage, cultivate self confidence and a sense of self as well as esteem. This process will help them polish their personal appearance and presentation skills. All these skills and qualities are requisite for success in any lifetime endeavor. This will, in turn, help them launch dreams and help others. The Miss Asia Hawaii Pageant is also a forum for these women and the Hawaiian community to celebrate Asian beauty, elegance and style.

The pageant program is designed to encourage contestants to always reach higher, while cultivating their skills and noble characteristics. This will help them succeed in education, relationships, careers, and life in general. It should also make them realize that success is not what appears on the outside, but what they possess inside. The efforts and enthusiasm invested in this experience will transform into an indomitable spirit always moving forward in life, overcoming obstacles, and embracing each achievement at a time.

The Miss Asia Hawaii Pageant is unique because it focuses on fostering positive traits and skills in the women of Hawaii’s Asian community. Miss Asia Hawaii will represent the epitome of Asian beauty and elegance, and will be responsible for representing and serving her community well. The queen and her court will have a memorable and rewarding year. They will appear in local, state, and national community events for civic, cultural, charitable, and educational events that benefit the community.
