MANILA -- Beauty knows no boundaries, as exemplified by people with special needs taking center stage.

For four years running, Miss Possibilities has given an avenue to girls to showcase their unique character and charisma and can feel accepted, celebrated, and esteemed.

Twelve girls vied for the Miss Possibilities title and 30 people with special needs walked with celebrity guests in a fashion show.

In the end, sassy Pia Cabanero, diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, stood out as this year’s Miss Possibilities.

The Miss Possibilities Foundation continues to advocate for acceptance and inclusion of people with special needs and believes that they play a role in society despite their challenges.
