MCVP 6th Training
To be physically and mentally ready is the key to success in the Pageant. Miss Chinese Vancouver 2014 1st Runner Up Maggie Wu and Outstanding Intelligence Award winner Sandra Chou previously met with the contestants to share tips on how to excel at the Final.
Maggie expressed that enjoying the time on stage is the best way to show off an excellent performance and gave credits to her supporters who played an important factor in helping her overcome her nervousness. She encouraged the contestants to communicate more with friends and family. Once struggling to balance school and the Pageant, Maggie also pointed out that time management is very important and being well-prepared is half the battle. As the winner of the Outstanding Intelligent award, Sandra recently received a scholarship to enroll in medical school. Sandra understands that the most nerve-wracking part of the competition is definitely Q&A. To give an example, Sandra quizzed the 10 contestants with the same question that she received in the Pageant last year and suggested to each contestant on how to improve her answer. Last year, Sandra encountered an unfortunate slip-up during her hula-hoop dance talent performance. However, she managed to keep her composure and continue on performing, even excelling in the Q&A segment that followed. Sandra reminded the contestants to forget things that happened in the past and keep looking forward to the next performance with confidence. Maggie and Sandra’s tips provided the 10 contestants with a lot of encouragements and better prepared them for the December 9th competition.
