Senior High School students (SHS) of FEU Alabang celebrated camaraderie, diversity and friendly competition with the first Search for Mr. and Ms. United Nations last November. The coronation night, which was the culminating event of the month-long search, brought together the FEU Alabang community to show their support for their candidates.
The event also exemplified how embracing a different culture from different countries can encourage diversity and inclusion among the students not just on United Nations Day.
Each pair of contestants was chosen by their peers to represent the different SHS strands (GAS, HUMMS, STEM and ABM). They prepared musical performances and colorful costumes that represented the country they picked. From the parade to the introduction, the judges had a hard time deciding who among the 54 candidates will take home the biggest awards for the night.
In the end, the following students were judged the best of the evening: Mr. UAE and Ms. China – 4th Runner-up, Mr. Mexico and Ms. USA – 3rd Runner Up, Mr. Singapore and Ms. Mexico – 2nd Runner Up, Mr. Switzerland and Ms. Australia – 1st Runner Up. Mr. Israel and Ms. Malaysia were crowned Mr. and Ms. United Nations 2018.
