There’s no one better to help you become a beauty queen than a former Miss Universe herself!
True to her aspirations of helping young Filipino women achieve their dreams, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray has announced on her social media pages that she will soon launch “The Catriona Gray Academy” where she will teach students all the skills she “used to conquer the Universe and every other stage [she’s] been on since.”
Gray is launching the training school through the online learning platform, Nas Academy, a school created by Arab-Israeli video blogger Nas Daily/Nuseir Yassin for content creators who aspire to be educators.
“I can’t wait to use this platform to teach you how to empower yourself every single day,” Gray wrote in her post’s caption.
According to the description posted on the Nas Academy website, the course called “How To Be a Queen” will teach students how to “speak your mind, build self-confidence, overcome insecurities and win over challenges.” The curriculum also covers topics such as “Speaking Out,” “Navigating Social Media,” as well as a topic on cultivating one’s own purpose and advocacy as an aspiring beauty queen.
Courses will be done as an “exclusive community.” Students can bond with other classmates worldwide and even join a fun “live sleepover party” with other beauty queen wannabes.
Students will also have the chance to ask questions directly to the former Miss Universe through interactive sessions joined by other beauty queen coaches as well. By finishing the course, students also get to attend a live graduation ceremony.
As of writing, Gray’s course is open for waitlists. You can join the waitlist by clicking this link to the Nas Academy course.
Gray, who won the Miss Universe pageant in 2018, is the fourth and the latest in a long line of Filipina beauty queens who achieved the same feat. Earning praise for her renowned “lava walk,” Gray took her pageant stint a step further by also becoming a staunch advocate for women’s rights and accessible education for impoverished youth through her own initiative, the “Paraiso: The Bright Beginnings Project.”
