The final round of competition will entail the finalist performing a one minute speech describing your platform. Your platform should describe a contemporary social or political issue that you feel passionate about. First, talk about the issue, then propose a solution or state how you are/will be involved in this concern. The limit is 175 words and should be able to be delivered by you at a normal speaking in pace in one minute.
EXAMPLE (175 words) - Quality health care and knowledge is a fundamental human right. Lack of access to resources, education and care in health, wellness and medicine is an issue that I have been heavily exposed to in my past volunteer experiences. My recent volunteer effort has allowed me to travel abroad with the Philippine Medical Society of Northern California to the city of Tagbilaran where our group served, healed and empowered 7,000 patients who needed care and education in medical, surgical, eye, dental and general health departments. I learnt that if we help someone nurture their internal and external self, we will be able to solve issues more effectively. With a healthy and knowledgeable mind, body and spirit, anyone can start to make the change that we need to see in the world today. As Miss Asian Global, I will work not only with leaders and professionals, but also with the whole community to push for reform and have resources, health education, medical and surgical care, and epidemiology and medical technology research more accessible in all underserved communities.
