Building dreams

Miss Possibilities Foundation, Inc. Founder Suzanna Yuson established the organization to convey the message that young girls with special needs are capable like everyone else. Through its committee and group of volunteers, the foundation held medical missions in communities and its much-anticipated annual pageant. The social event encourages children with different needs to build hope and self-confidence. It made sense as when children see their friends up on stage, they can be inspired to do similar. They need not be conscious of themselves as they have their own gifts they can show and share with others.

As with the pageants in the past years, young girls dressed up in beautiful gowns and showed their wit and talent on stage. One sang a beautiful rendition of “Defying Gravity” while others danced to popular music. Everyone saw the support of the families, personalities, and guests as they cheered and applauded for each finalist. The fashion show featuring celebrities was another highlight of the pageant. Donning on vibrant apparel, the children walked down the runway, escorted by personalities. They enjoyed posing in front of the crowd, reinforcing how the true meaning of beauty is never about physical appearances but love for oneself and for others.
