Twelve young ladies from across the country competed for the much-coveted crown Miss Chinatown 2013 in public speaking, singing and dancing last Saturday, reported Asian Week. These contestants practiced and rehearsed for weeks before descending in San Francisco for a final face-off.
Leah Li, Miss Chinatown of Mercer Island, Washington, stole the show on pageant day with her ethnic costume. She came home with the Miss Chinatown USA crown and a scholarship prize.
The Miss Chinatown USA Pageant has been held in San Francisco for the past 56 years. This year’s theme is “Reflections of Beauty.”
