Thank you to everyone who joined us for the crowning of UVA’s very first MR. ASIAN AMERICAN at our 2014 VOICES! The sisters of Sigma Psi Zeta’s Lambda Chapter worked hard with the great eight contestants to make this an exciting and successful event! We appreciate everyone’s support and enthusiasm.
VOICES this year took the form of a pageant-like competition for men in the community to prove their outstanding professionalism and share their diverse backgrounds with everyone. They participated in culturally themed portions such as a talent act, traditional/cultural costume competition, and Q & A section where they responded on the spot to serious questions regarding the status of the APA community as well as some fun, light hearted questions.
Special thanks to our guest performers: The Pride & CSA’s Longsleeves Dance
After an extensive amount of judging on the part of our wonderful judges, our 2 runner-ups and 1st place winner, Mr. Asian American 2014, were decided! Thank you to our judges for helping us make this difficult decision: Annie Lin (Japan Club), Ava Chen (MSN), Camille Lorenzana (OYFA), Hao Qiu (Lambda Phi Epsilon), Jesse Zhao (CSA), Lam Bui (VSA), and Yujin Cho (Sigma Psi Zeta).
Congratulations to Kevin Wu for winning UVA’s very first Mr. Asian American! And congratulations to our 1st and 2nd runner-ups, Kevin Quach and Shota Ono! Great job, gentlemen!
