26. Beauty with a Purpose ft. Savannah Pham & Priscilla Wang

By Da Eun Kim & Sophia Sun

Do you think that beauty pageants are frivolous and problematic? Before you dismiss them entirely, tune into our conversation with Priscilla Wang (Miss World Oklahoma) and Savannah Pham (Miss Asia World, Miss Asian America, and Miss Vietnam USA) about their experiences competing in pageants with intentionality. They share about the opportunities and limitations of pageants as a platform for advancing issues they're passionate about.They also share what it's like to support women in their professional and personal lives while "competing" very publicly against women in pageants. If you want to hear an episode about sisterhood, self-improvement, culturally-defined beauty standards, unique platforms for advocacy, the difficulty of being acknowledged simultaneously for one's beauty and brains, and negotiating one's professional image in industry and academia while pursuing a time-consuming and often controversial endeavor - you won't want to miss this episode.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/bambooandglass)
