World Class Beauty Queens: Please tell us about yourself.
I am a child of Christ. I was born in Laos, the youngest of 11 children and migrated to Australia when I was only 1 years of age. My nationality is Australian /Chinese / Vietnamese / Laotian.
My Chinese given name, Sec, means ‘diamond’ and my Italian name, Lucia, means ‘graceful light’. I also have one other adopted brother and I was co-cared / fostered by Italian parents as well as my biological own. I have been fortunate enough to have an upbringing filled with memories of warmth, love, support and happiness. My immediate multicultural family alone expands over 100 members, in which over 30 of them are my nieces and nephews and now great nieces and great nephews.
I continue to be surrounded by people who prove to be great references in my life.
My passion lies in photography, the art of capturing light, and it is essentially my language of love. Through my lens I am able to paint the best version of how my subject wants to see themselves.
I love sparkly things and anything super hero. My favourite superhero’s are Superman & Wonder Woman.
My favourite colour is red because it’s bold, sexy and the colour of love. Many women are afraid to wear red because it’s so intense. I also love the different shades and spectrum of blue because I associate it with calm and the sea and ocean, where I love to dive like I am a mermaid and watch corpuscular rays shine through the water.
So, like my favourite colours, I am described as an extremist in anything I put my heart and soul in as well as a very kind and compassionate person.
Career wise I wear many hats; I am a Director of a Building and Maintenance company, Painter and Plasterer, Photographer, Media Manager, PR, Public Speaker, MC, Creative Director, Reigning Queen, Charity Ambassador… but my biggest accomplishment of all, is that I am a Mother to two amazing, energetic and funny children.
My focus is on influencing positive outcomes for change & empowerment.
My life aspiration encompasses passive self-improvement & inspiring others to live extraordinary lives whilst empowering their dreams and to always maintain integrity and empathy as a role model, providing great references in life, especially to my very own two children.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us why you decide to become World Class Beauty Queens Australia Ambassador?
There is a certain honour in serving the country that you call home. Australia is the most multicultural country in the world that celebrates all people from all ethnic backgrounds and nationalities in harmony.
World Class Beauty Queens: How does it feel to be the 1st Cover Girl Of World Class Queens Of Australia Magazine?
Saying I have to constantly pinch myself is an understatement. The World Class Beauty Queen brand is about women empowerment and recognizing the humanitarian work that lives in the heart of that beauty. So to be at the forefront for my home country is more than an honour.
World Class Beauty Queens: Have you done any appearances as World Class Beauty Queens Oceania Ambassador?
Yes I have worn my crown proudly at many events where I have represented as the MC, Host, Community Ambassador & Celebrity Guest.
World Class Beauty Queens: Any appearance plans as the Ambassador for 2018 /2019?
I plan to represent well at all my events that allow me the opportunity. I aspire to inspire, so being a part of something I am very proud of allows me to cause that ripple effect of empowering others, with such grace as I have myself received.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your pageant history.
As a professional photographer, I have been photographing beauty queens and pageant finals for over 5 years.
In 2016, I was invited by a former Mrs Australia Globe title holder to enter and reluctantly dismissed the idea at first, as I had just turned 40 years of age, had no modelling or pageant experience, nor did I even own any makeup products at all.
After being further encouraged by fellow friends whom I had mentioned the idea to, I imagined the possibility of the ability to expand my platform towards advocating about issues that are close to my heart, so I said YES.
In 2016, competing alongside more than 20 finalists in my first ever pageant at the age of 40, I am proud to look back and say that I was the first Asian in the Mrs Australia Globe to have ever won 2 titles in the one pageant year; Mrs Australia Globe Peoples Choice & Mrs Coral Sea Globe.
The last Mrs Coral Sea title was awarded 6 years ago.
In 2016 I competed alongside more than 60 countries internationally in the Mrs Globe international event in China Hainan and placed in the top finals.
In 2017 I was awarded at an international level, the title Mrs Oceania Globe, as the regional favourite of the world, where I also placed in the top finals in China Shenzhen out of 72 countries at the Mrs Globe international event.
In the same year I am also proud to say that my sister Kim Michael, won the title Mrs Australia Globe Classic 2017 (for women aged 45 years and over), which she then competed at the Mrs Globe U.S of A & Classic international finals in Las Vegas.
Kim & I are the first ever sisters winning titles in the Mrs Australia Globe / Mrs Globe pageant within the same year. It has an honour representing alongside my sister as the reigning queens for our country.
In all my experience working in the pageant industry as a photographer and stylist, I have never imagined beyond my wildest dreams that I would be inspired to change from ‘hiding behind’ to ’shining in front’ of the camera.
In 2018, this year I was graced as an ambassador for the World Class Beauty Queen brand, Editor in Chief, Oceania 2018, Australia 2018 & Woman Of The Year 2018. I feel like my journey has just begun and looking forward to endless possibilities of what can be achieved.
World Class Beauty Queens: What inspired you to do your first pageant?
As I have been involved with creating media portfolios for beauty queens over 5 years, getting to know their personality and purpose have been a big factor of where I drew part of the inspiration from.
Humanitarian work lives in the heart of pageantry & the goodness that came out of their efforts intrigued me. Witnessing the new era of ‘beauty with brains and a purpose’ and seeing that most finalists were aspiring individuals such as accomplished doctors, lawyers & change makers also intrigued me. Witnessing how pageantry provided a platform to be the voice for those who cannot be heard intrigued me the most.
I resonated with a quote I read from one of my dear friend’s post that said, ‘If an opportunity intrigues you, even just a bit, say YES then figure it out later. Be generous, but also be selective, but when you say YES, give it your all’, so I said YES!
I imagined the possibility of the ability to expand my platform towards advocating about issues that are close to my heart, such as the various charities I had partnered with over the past five years, surrounding issues such as; bullying, homelessness, sex exploitation and slavery, children born with heart disease, disadvantaged children, victims of abuse, mental health and women empowerment.
I imagined that if could challenging myself, by being brave enough to take the leap out of my comfort zone, be humble enough to accept that there is so much more to learn, be proud enough to believe I am worthy, be grounded enough to know beauty shines from within, be confident enough to represent , be faithful enough to understand this is part of my destiny & also be passionate enough to truly want to further inspire others as a role model, then I would really be walking the walk and talking the talk and proving that there are no age, religion, race or gender limitations to what seems impossible become possible.
So at the age of 40, with no pageant experience and who didn’t even know how to apply make up, I was inspired with everything that intrigued me and the dream of being an active part of a ripple effect of goodness, I said yes toward the opportunity to giving it my all.
World Class Beauty Queens: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?
I was fortunate enough, that the work I had completed in my previous title, Mrs Australia
Globe Peoples Choice & Mrs Coral Sea Globe 2016, was highly recognized and afforded me the honour of being awarded the 2017 Mrs Oceania Globe title. It is the title awarded to the regional favourite of the world by Mrs Globe from the international stage.
I chose to accept the title for the continual ability to further grow and use my title for awareness of my platform. One of the highlights of pageantry competition is that you get to design and wear a national costume whilst waving your country flag and participating in a professional choreographed stage production, alongside many other inspiring women around the world, whom you have now adopted as your royal global family. One year I represented as a mermaid and in the recent year I represented as a pearl in a clam shell costume that my sister generously made for me. For me it is a lifetime opportunity, and no other place I would feel delighted and comfortable to dance and strut my body on stage, at the age of 40, in as little as a bikini, just like a Victoria Secret Model!
It is also an great privilege and honour to represent my country, culture and lead the way for the next generation.
World Class Beauty Queens: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about?
Mrs Globe is longest and largest ‘consecutively’ running international pageant in the world for the miss/ms/mrs. The pageant prides itself as producing one of the most recognised and celebrated international pageants in the world and is a celebration of beauty, culture, and charity for women.
Mrs Australia Globe is a registered trademark of Mrs Globe and manages the titles of Mrs Australia Globe, Mrs Oceania Globe, Mrs Australasia Globe & Mrs Coral Sea Globe.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are you being judged on during the competition?
Evening gown, Swimwear & 60 seconds Personality Profile speech, as well as the top finalist on stage questions for those who made the final 10-15 internationally.
Your overall presence, professional attributes, and personality also plays a part in your overall success in winning the awards.
World Class Beauty Queens: How was your experience during the competition.
As this was my second year in a row competing internationally under the same pageant system, I would have to say my first experience was most memorable and personally more rewarding, as I had as my entourage; my photography partner, my own personal make up artist, and a really strong Australian team along side me on my journey. With all the familiar feelings of nervousness and excitement, I missed the presence of my personal confidants and comrades. I also allowed the behaviour and stress of others effect my ability to shine to my fullest. In the first year the whole Australian team placed in the top finals. In the latest year, Mrs Oceania Globe, was the only title from the Australia team to make it in the top finals. I am proud to reveal that I also made it into the top dancing group, which was a huge advancement from the year before. Overall, It was an experience that awarded me a larger royal global family of more than 70 new global queens and allowed me to further explore and embrace China’s culture as the beautiful host country for the Mrs Globe 2017 international event. I was very proud to represent my title.
World Class Beauty Queens: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for.
I am proudly the first official ambassador for Project Karma. Project Karma saves children from sex exploitation and slavery across South East Asia. My focus is to spread awareness on this taboo topic that for decades no one wants to talk about and continues to be a huge human rights violation that is going largely unnoticed around the world.
Project Karma is a not-for-profit charity organisation and is comprised of; Australian and foreign law enforcement officers, investigators, operatives and other volunteers to combat the sexual exploitation of children both within Australia and in key regions of South East (SE) Asia where the majority of these crimes occur. In collaboration with Australian and SE Asian partners and networks Project Karma aims to: Develop and implement strategic action plans to combat these issues, Bring legal actions against sexual abusers of children, Rescue and rehabilitate child victims and potential victims of these crimes, Create and deliver awareness and education programs at all levels in SE Asia, Australia and beyond about sexual abuse and exploitation of children, & Lobby Government for recognition and action to address key causes surrounding these crimes.
The global industry for underage sex trafficking and sexual exploitation of children is worth at around $36 Billion US a year! Involving an estimated 5.5 million child victims were trafficked last year, where the majority of these children live in South East Asia. This number is growing at an estimated 20% per year and exists mainly because it is so accessible, targeted at the world’s poorest children by organised crime. Not only do some of these children live on less than $2 a day, these children routinely face sexual and physical violence being trapped in the worst forms of exploitation such as drug trafficking and prostitution. Some children as young as 1 years old are subject to prolific abuse and the sexual assault filmed to be sold and distributed to sick pedophiles throughout the black underworld market. Children as young as 5 years of age, are found drugged and chained to the floor, sold and abused as sex slaves. As a mother of two young children, my heart aches from knowing the reality that so many millions of children have to endure this injustice at such an innocent age. I am still in disbelief that we live in the 21st century with so much advancement in technology, and yet the world is so behind in humanity within this taboo topic.
Project Karma is prepared to take the risks necessary as its focus is to disrupt the Organised Crime networks that create and supply a market of children for sexual exploitation.
Project Karma is currently implementing a 3-year Sentinel Pilot Project aiming at working with government bodies to review current allocation systems and establishing crisis assessment centre and aftercare programs to the following regions including: Bali (Indonesia), Cebu (Philippines), Bangkok, Pattaya and other regions of Thailand. Following a review of these pilot projects Project Karma will expand the model to: India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. Through delivery of the Sentinel Project Project Karma aims to: Deliver training packages on investigation and vigilance of these crimes to local SE Asian police and other law enforcement agencies, Create trustworthy intelligence networks and private investigation teams, Facilitate legal action against child abusers and traffickers, Rescue sexually exploited and abused children, Provide support for welfare, rehabilitation and legal services for victims, Create and deliver ongoing programs of advocacy, awareness and education to local community members, universities and beyond & Establish local partnerships for ongoing project delivery including signed memorandum of understandings.
Through awareness I believe we can all can make a difference. Together we can rescue and rehabilitate children, disrupt criminal networks, prosecute offenders, influence governments to create better laws, empower communities to stamp out these crimes and take this fight to its core.

World Class Beauty Queens: What appearances have you done with your title?
As a reigning queen and the ambassador for Project Karma, I have been able to grow awareness through various forms of media such as;
Magazines, newspapers, radios, events, public speaking & television. I have also used my title to support a range of other charities and causes at their events such as Bully Zero Australia Foundation, The Victorian Cultural Association Inc, The Holi Festival, The Melbourne Indian Film Festival, Heart Kids Australia, Women In Need Foundation, Western Health Foundation, CDF Transport Charity and many more.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are some of your achievements?
In relation to my personal life’s journey, I was able to accomplish academic achievements and receive promotions within my career.
I even purchased my first Ferrari 355 Spider and made top 10 finance consultant in my early twenties.
My greatest achievement of all would have to be the arrival of my two young children in my thirties.
I am an awarding winning photographer and a proud charity partner to many great causes.
I am currently the face of Saka Water China and the proudest ambassador for Project Karma.
Pageant related, some of my achievements are that, I made international queen in my first pageant experience. I have learnt that this is a huge achievement because many people compete for years in pageants in their own country but never make it internationally.
I was the first Asian to be crowned in the Mrs Australia Globe.
I was also the first to be awarded two titles in the one pageant coronation: Mrs Australia Globe Peoples Choice as well as Mrs Coral Sea Globe.
I believe I might be the first and only winner to perform the robot dance as part of my victory dance on stage. This is probably not considered to be an achievement to some, but being comfortable enough to allow your true personality to shine without worrying about judgment on a national pageant stage is gold.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is your onstage strategy to win the judges over?
Having judged fashion shows and models, I would say poise, confidence, along side a happy demeanor with character is what I find most attractive.
As this is in regards to an international beauty pageant, then my onstage strategy is mainly confidence and personality, along with having an impressive wardrobe and wearing my best smile.
World Class Beauty Queens: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls?
I believe my bubbly personality and inviting friendly smile is a positive trait I have.
People often mention that when I enter the room, I bring joy, fun and a positive energy with me. I am a giver and like helping others, so I believe being sincere, accommodating, genuine, helpful and friendly, especially being compassionate and kind are the attributes, that shine from my vibes that attracts all my tribes. I love socializing with others and getting to know them through listening to their unique stories.
Style wise, I believe I am quite fashionable as I often receive compliments and asked where I bought my clothing pieces from.
I hope that I can continue be a true inspiration to others and that my beauty within and outside shines so brightly that it will reflect the values and meaning of what true beauty is and is so incredible that my presence is felt and remembered.
To stand out in the moment is one thing, but to stand out and be ‘remembered’ in a good light is to leave a legacy.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did it feel to hear your name as the winner?
Every time my name or title gets announced as the winner or as a top finalist, there is the skip of the heart beat, the unbelievable surreal seconds of total bewilderment, the surge of excitement, the outpouring of relief, the gush of energy, then comes the gratefulness and pride alongside the deafening screams and applause from your friends and audience. It feels unbelievably amazing and so touching followed by internal tears of joy. Instead of just walking out gracefully, all I wanted to do was a robot dance, shuffle and the moon walk.
World Class Beauty Queens: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen?
People often ask me, how does it feel like to wear my queen crown. My answer is LOVE. My answer is FAMILY, I am still the person I was before but I am MORE. My heart is more, My passion is more, My purpose is MORE, My determination to help others is MORE but I just do things a little bit differently now… doing the same thing but MORE and whilst wearing heels and a crown. This is my answer because I believe being a beauty queen doesn’t just define or make you, pageantry is hard work, you would have had to have it in you all along, that diamond in your heart just needed a platform to shine from, for people to hear your voice and to believe in you, an energy of goodness fueled in order to empower others. This crown has given me MORE.
In a span of two years I have adopted a global family across the world of more than 200 members and gained a louder voice and a wider platform.
Within my two years, I have a huge presence on social media, with nearly 5000 friends on Facebook and over 30,000 followers on Instagram. I have been featured on the front cover of magazines, front cover of the newspapers, articles written about me, been on TV, interviewed on the radio, on stage public speaking to over 5,000 people, spent so much time in front of the lens instead of only behind, and am featured on Wikipedia as well as been nominated for over 7 awards including The Most Compassionate Award and ranked in the TOP 15 in the Mrs Globe International stage and competed alongside 72 countries in the world. BUT… what does all this opportunity and exposure really mean? As I am not in it for the fame, nor for work?!
It means ABILITY. The ability to be a beacon of light and a voice for those who aren’t heard. Yes I have become a model, not the type that breaks out with the vogue poses, and not the kind of role of a character playing a part in a movie, but a real life ROLE MODEL. Hopefully I’ll prove to be a very good one, especially to my little ones, but nonetheless, a very proud one.
Because this crown has given me the ability to represent and be a role model across many spectrums, including hope, love and charity. Not only do I use my ability to support many wonderful charities such as Heart Kids, Women In Needs Foundation & Bully Zero Australia, but one of my proudest achievements is that I became the first official ambassador for Project Karma. An Australian charity organisation that saves children from sex exploitation and human trafficking throughout South East Asia. To be standing alongside a real life super hero, Glen Hurley who is the founder, and towards supporting Project Karma’s sentinel project that will see 8 crisis centers built in 8 countries and the implementation of much needed child protection laws, policing, education and agriculture within the communities to teach them how to feed themselves and be less vulnerable to the predators of crime. I think for me that is the type of legacy I will want to leave in my name and I will wear my crown every so proudly whilst representing.
My greatest memories above all start from the beginning… my mum and sisters squeezing my hand and telling me how proud they were. My daughter Phoenix sporting her little princess crown and especially my son Xavier for every time I was unsure and nervous on stage…his loving eyes were constantly locked onto mine so when I would glance at him, his thumbs would automatically go up to let me know I was doing ok and he was proud of me. Those are the kind of memories that came with me acquiring my crown, so in conclusion; What does my crown feel like on? It feels like LOVE.
World Class Beauty Queens: How did competing in pageants helped your life?
My journey through pageantry has taught me how to accentuate my natural inner and outer beauty and taught me how to speak confidently in public. It has given me stage experience and the ability to alter my platform to a higher level.
It has given me access to arrears that I would not have normally been able to expose myself in, It has helped grow my audience and given me lifetime experiences.
The experiences has helped me learn so much more about myself and I have grown a new respect and appreciation to the world of pageantry.
Pageantry has given me the opportunity to proudly represent my country, my ethnicity, my multiculturalism, my individualism and my platforms.
It has instilled within me lifetime memories shared with other world queens and the experience of being bold and brave enough to strut in a bikini on an international stage like a Victoria Secret Model.
Overall, my whole pageantry experience empowered and polished me to becoming more.
World Class Beauty Queens: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel?
I believe I am an inspiration to not only girls but to all people of different ages and gender.
I aspire to inspire, so it feels very empowering to be able to empower others. Alongside the empowerment comes with the sense of responsibility, because as they say, with great power comes great responsibility.
I also feel very proud that I can be a role model and spread my infectious ripples of kindness and goodness.
I have a grateful heart and feel very blessed by the Lord above.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk?
As a photographer/videographer/creative director, I adopted the skills as a very natural stylist by trade. I am constantly modelling and directing my subjects on how to pose, act or walk a certain way.
This has been an advantage in being able to see the art of pageantry walk in a professional, judges and audience perspective and apply techniques in teaching my subjects and also through my own stage experiences.
To be able to walk with a stride that’s looks confident, classy, comfortable, natural and energetic is a matter of practice. It is best practiced wearing the type of shoes you intend to wear on stage and to understand the intended timing of your stride.
My greatest tip is to wear in your shoes long enough well before the event, so they won’t be uncomfortable and cause your feet pain in your moment in the spotlight.
I usually go shopping in my heels to distract myself whilst I am ‘practicing’ and walking around the house in my heels and having fun with it. A classic trick is to walk straight elegantly across the room whilst balancing a thick and heavy book on your head, this is to practice maintaining a straight posture and a glide rather than a stride.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress?
There are many factors involved in choosing the right pageant dress. Better understanding of your body shape and what type of style suits it, aids in complimenting your stage presence. Having access to a wide variety of dresses to explore the different styles will help, as well as embracing a second or third opinion.
The right pageant dress should fit perfectly, accentuate your assets and your curves, easy to walk confidently in and something that makes your personality shine as well make you feel and look amazing wearing it. For example one of my best features is my neckletage and shoulders, thus strapless dresses usually compliment my body most. Understanding what colours suit you most or brings out your best features, such as your eyes, is also a bonus. Something to also give thought to is how the dress looks like on camera and if it is a stop and stare dress that will evoke the reaction that you are after.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your tips for winning interview?
Be honest and let your personality come through. Having a unique story to tell sets you in the league of being remembered and interesting. Sounding too rehearsed makes you come across as being fake. Being genuine and sincere is very attractive. Talking clearly, concisely and at a good speed and tone will show confidence and poise. Make plenty eye contact with your audience and engage them with some body language, such as the relevant hand gestures.
World Class Beauty Queens: What is one mistake that you’ve done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it?
After being crowned in my first ever pageant experience, I performed the robot dance on stage, which let my excitement and personality shine through, filling the whole audience with laughter.
Two years later in my latest pageant experience, I was too focused on maintaining an elegant posture, that even though I was so exited and really wanted to burst out in a shuffle and dance the moon walk, I regret I didn’t do what I would have liked to make the experience even more memorable.
World Class Beauty Queens: Any other mistakes competitors should watch out for while competing?
During both years of my international pageant experience, I have witnessed women emotionally falling apart because they are comparing themselves with others and getting their mindset mixed up with all the stress and craziest of pageantry and not allowing their own inner beauty to shine. Mental health, I believe plays a major part in competition as your confidence is what attracts your success. Embrace and concentrate on yourself instead of spending that energy measuring your self worth against others. Have fun and make plenty of friends.
World Class Beauty Queens: Any modelling or acting experience?
No because my main interest and hobbies revolve more around being behind the lens as the photographer/ videographer or creative director.
World Class Beauty Queens: What are your plans for 2018/2019 as a Queen?
2018 will see me represent my platform Project Karma on a more magnified level, spreading awareness through the media and becoming more proactive in growing its success by making more appearances on TV, Radio, Events & News Print.
World Class Beauty Queens: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
One of the most inspiring women that I had the pleasure of actually knowing throughout my childhood was my brother’s Australian foster parent, Mrs Ryan. Memories of my visitations and sitting at her dining table full of foster children, as well as her very own children are one of my fondest childhood memories. Understanding that this incredible woman had a heart so big that she became so charitable toward caring for under privileged children of all ethnicity and that she was so lovely and kind in giving these children who travelled in and out of her home, an opportunity to feel like they belonged to an alternative family unit. As I grew older as a young girl, I witnessed the same children had returned from time to time to visit her and most of them grew into successful adults. After her passing more than a decade ago, I was also happy to hear that a story was televised in honour of the late Mrs Ryan and how she not only touched, changed but also gave opportunity to all the children who were blessed under her care. Her remembrance and presence of compassion has never left me and her legacy lives in the many lives of those she was able to touch.
This is the type of footprint I would love to leave behind in many hearts of many generations to come.
I am so blessed that I have the opportunity to use my platform as Project Karma’s Ambassador. The realization that my efforts and voice can potentially save millions of children and free them from sex slavery and continual abuse is so enormous. The dream that one day, the sentinel project model can potentially become so successful, that the whole world would then be able to adopt the model and work towards a future free from these atrocities. The dream that all the children that gets saved, have a second chance to live a decent life. This is the kind of legacy I want to leave behind; ‘Lucia Hou was a super hero, she dedicated her life fighting crime with her presence and she saved and gave hope to millions of children. As a queen, she ruled the world by saving the world. As a mother, she instilled great values and love in her own children that they are so proud of her, and the charity was so abundantly blessed that she was able to care for hundreds more. On a lighter note, she was such a legendary super hero that she even hasher own barbie doll character made in honour of her’
