After representing Indonesia at the beauty pageant, Agnes Liong's career options increased - even if she did not win the title of Miss Asian American Global 2012. She now has more modeling skills, more self-confidence, gained a business mentor (Filipino-American Entrepreneur Evelyn Sineneng-Smith), more contacts, and, most importantly, she now has a much better idea of how to proceed as an Asian-American fashion model with Magna-cum-Laude honors, which is a rare combination.

Ann Landers once wrote, "Nobody gets to live life backward. Look ahead, that is where your future lies."

And so the future of Agnes Liong lies ahead of her. She will graduate this fall from California State University, Magna-cum-Laude, with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, and with majors in Finance and Marketing. In addition, Agnes is fluent in three languages: English, German and Indonesian.

Agnes will continue her current career as a hair model for beauty salons, a (size 0) runway model for dress designers, and an editorial model for various fashion photographers targeting the Asian-American market.

She has a genuine and friendly personality and the academic brains to back up her Asian-American beauty...two characteristics that will make her extremely marketable to the Asian-American community, not just in the fashion and beauty industries, but also in the business world where she will soon embark into. Having Evelyn Sineneng-Smith as her business mentor will introduce Agnes to the world of US Immigration, Real Estate Investments and Fashion Entrepreneurship, the three areas of Evelyn's expertise.

Agnes is very thankful to Rose Chung, the organizer of the Miss Asian-American 2012 Global Beauty Pageant, to her close friend Johnson Le, who, for several evenings in July, patiently drove her to the office/showroom of Filipino-American Entrepreneur Evelyn Sineneng-Smith for the fittings of her sunset yellow silk gown. Johnson Le watched Agnes admiringly and made sure the embroidered hibiscus flowers fluttered as she practiced walking, beauty-pageant style.
