World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Please tell us about yourself.

My name is Jasmine Fontanilla and I am 16 years old. I was born and raised in Calgary AB, I am full Filipino. I can understand Tagalog fluently but can only speak a little bit of Taglish. Though I grew up in Canada, my family always raised me in a traditional Filipino household which I appreciate a lot. I get to experience my own culture. I am more of an “artsy” kind of person when it comes to hobbies and personal interests. Listening to music, cooking, and drawing are part of my everyday life. These things help me calm down when I'm feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed. If you see me in public I'll always have my headphones, a snack, or even a notepad to draw with me, no matter where I am. I've worked as a line cook for two and a half years and I've been a server/hostess for about six months.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Please tell us about your education.

I currently go to Notre Dame highschool and i am in grade 11. I have always attended schools in the Catholic district. For college I am planning to go to an esthetician school here in Calgary since beauty has always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. My other option is culinary school since that has also been one of my biggest passions in life, but I'll just have to see where life takes me.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does women Empowerment mean to you?

When I hear about the term women empowerment, my mind immediately thinks about strength, equality, independence, and self confidence. These terms greatly resemble all of the hard work women have gone through to get us where we are in today's society. Over the years women have been able to prove themselves that they are just as capable of doing certain things as men are, but I'm not going to get political so I'm just going to leave it at that. Aside from political matters, I value women empowerment. It's a term that brings us together and encourages us to support one another as women and bring each other up as we are meant to. Women empowerment gives us a sense of nationality.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history.

When I got discovered for my first pageant it was accidental. I was helping my mom with a photo booth for a model casting for Bathala International. One of the managers saw me and told me that I should try pageantry. I was skeptical at first but at the end of the day, I just told myself “why not?”. My first pageant was in October of 2022. This experience was very new for me since I had only competed in karate my whole life, it was definitely a big change of perspective. Overall, I was able to meet a lot of new people, develop more confidence, and gain a lot of experience and exposure. My second pageant was in October of 2023. This time I was more prepared for what was to come. This time I learned more about polishing up my technique in pageantry. I was still able to gain experience, skill, and exposure, meet new people, gain confidence and knowledge of the pageant world.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant?

I joined my first pageant in hopes to gain experience, reach new boundaries, gain self love, develop my social skills, and overall just to learn something new. Since I was a kid I had been competing in karate tournaments (from 4 to 14 years old). So I really wanted to see if I had more talents. I kept thinking to myself things like “why not?’ and “you only have one life, so why limit yourself?”.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?

I chose to compete for my current title because to be honest I really missed the thrill of being in a pageant, getting all of your routines ready, trying new clothes, the adrenaline rush that you get before getting on that stage, getting to have your own moment on stage, and the overwhelming but thrilling cheers of the audience. I also wanted to see if I could do better than my last competition. Not to win or to be better than someone else, but to prove to myself that there are still limits that are meant to be pushed and met.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What makes your director different from others?

My directors treat their clients with deep care. They don't only treat us like some stranger, they make an effort to learn more about our lifestyle and hobbies. They make sure that you are pleased with their work, and to be honest. They never disappoint. They will wake up very early in the morning and take time out of their days to take care of us. They have brought me a vast amount of opportunities as well. For example, runways, fiestas, little and big events.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition?

Though it is called a beauty pageant, they are not only judging you for your appearance, but for your attitude, kindness, the way you treat others and the way you present yourself. Small things like your posture, the way you speak, punctuality, how you dress, and your aura.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition.

My experience was a mix of a vast spectrum of mixed emotions, but it was all so worth it. At first I wasn't so sure if I would fit in with the pageant community, but as time passed and more experience was gained, I realized that I actually love it. All of the anxiety, doubt, and self invalidation became worth it once I learned how to have confidence, self love, and knowing my self worth. Through my competitions, I got to experience what it's like to love myself .

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your platform or what cause you volunteer for.

I don't volunteer for any causes but I do hope that I can inspire others to love themselves and their bodies. On my platform, I like to post myself in different styles in hopes to show others that it's okay to have your own unique style, and it isn't a bad thing to show it off to the world. I hope to inspire others to have confidence in their true selves and let them know that we don't all have to be the same, variety and uniqueness is needed and accepted in today's world.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What appearances have you done with your title?

After I earned my title, I was able to make appearances at runways, and Filipino events such as Fiesta Filipino.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are some of your achievements?

Some of my achievements are getting to attend more runways and events due to exposure. I don’t only have a passion for beauty pageants but also for modeling in runways.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls?

Standing out doesn’t always have to come from looks. It’s also about sticking to who you are. For me, I like to stick to my personality and who I am, I like to show my hobbies, my personal style, and my culture.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner.

For my titles, I felt so proud of myself, though it wasn’t first place, I still felt pride in what I have accomplished in my short experience with pageantry. In that moment I saw that all of the hard work and self development was worth the while.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen?

To me, being a beauty queen means to show your true beauty, talents, and personality. It’s all about being proud in your true self and showing that pride and confidence in who you are.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did competing in pageants helped your life?

Competing in pageants helped me get into the world. In more depth, it helped me developed my personality, professionalism, social skills, and taught me how to confidently express myself.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image?

Pageants helped me realize the not everyone has to have the “perfect model image or standard” to be a beauty queen. Especially with the swimsuit category, I was able to develop confidence in myself and own the stage, to be proud of my body.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel?

It feels like the biggest accomplishment I’ve reached in my young life. I always wanted to help others be proud of their true selves, and it gives me excitement in life, something to be proud about. It is also very heartwarming knowing that I am able to help others.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over?

I really like to connect with the judges, make eye contact. I always keep in mind that I’m not just there to present the clothes I’m wearing, but also to create an exhilarating chemistry with the judges and audience.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition?

It took a lot of self pep talks. Going on that stage takes a lot of confidence. I worked on my strategy, self love, and self pride. It was a long journey to learn my self worth, but all of that work was worth it in the end, not only for the competitions but also for my own life.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk?

You have to walk with confidence, own the stage. This is your time to shine, all eyes are on you and that can be overwhelming but learning to own that stage and walk with pride is the best asset to have when you’re on that stage.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress?

First, find your colour, something that compliments your skin tone, hair, and eyes. Don’t pick colors that make your skin look dull. Also with the colour, find a colour that is eye catching but not ugly, not too busy either, keep it elegant and classy at the same time. For the fitting, find a dress that suits your body type and enhances your body’s shape, no need for hip pads or push ups, embrace your body and love it as it is. At the same time, never go on stage in something that you’re not comfortable in, the more comfortable you are, the more confident you’ll be on stage.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview?

Don’t be cocky, it’s okay to be proud and confident but don’t push it too far by having a big ego. You wanna try to convince the judges that you are worthy of the title, not forcing them.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it?

The biggest mistake I’ve made on stage is not having enough facial expressions. Again, you wanna entice the judges and get reaction out of them. Of course, always have a big bright smile but it’s okay to go from excitement or fierce back to smiling.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest?

The biggest mistake I see is something that can be easily worked on, not by training, but by self development. It is the lack of confidence that is missing. When it comes to walking on stage, interview, and meet and greets, it all needs self improvement.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Any modeling or acting experience?

I started modelling in summer of 2022 with Bathala international. Since then I’ve been to several runways here in Calgary, Lethbridge, and Red Deer.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your plans for 2024 as a Queen?

I plan to keep influencing others and remind them how to stay true to themselves and be proud of it.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?

I want to leave behind a message. That sticking to the beauty standards doesn’t always have to be the case, it’s okay to stick to who you are, your personality, morals, styles, and natural beauty. It’s all beautiful so you should own it, don’t change yourself for others, only be better, stand tall, be confident and proud for yourself, not for others.
