PHOENIX, AZ — It’s been 33 years since Tina Recto won the title of Binibining Pilipinas Maja International in the Philippines.
The former actress and model now works in the banking industry in Arizona, with a daughter who also wants to go far in the world of beauty pageants.
18-year-old Holly Recto Hansen will be representing Arizona at the Miss U.S. international pageant later this month. This cross country runner wants to set an example to other young people when it comes to taking care of their health.
Holly, who is also a dancer, says she feels no pressure following in her mother’s footsteps.
With little time to prepare, Hansen will be traveling to Orlando, Florida to represent Arizona. People can watch the Miss U.S. international pageant on June 28 or visit missusinternational.com to learn more.
