“Good evening! I am Yorisbeth San Ho. I am 22 years old and today I win the contest of Chinese Queen. I feel very excited. I am really wordless to describe this moment. I feel so good going to El Salvador in August to represent Panama at the regional contest for Central America.”

All the 12 participants parade in sportswear, swimsuits and evening gowns among other outfits during the pageant.

“The competition is held with the participation of 12 candidates from the Chinese community in Panama. It is hot rivalry. It is a success tonight, because the girls not only have their stage life, but also begin a stage of friendship among the 12 of them.”

Except for their beauty, the jury will take into account their skills in Spanish and ability expression.

“It is not just a competition, but also a promotion of the values of the Chinese community, because the Chinese community strives to teach their children and the whole family to unite above all else and foster beauty for the enhancement of Chinese females.”

From August 24 to 27, Yorisbeth San Ho is scheduled to attend the Miss China Contest for Central America in El Salvador .
