"Capture the real you." 

This is one of OPPO's most remarkable taglines, which symbolizes their commitment to beauty, inside and out. 

That's why, unhesitatingly, OPPO Philippines agreed to become one of the sponsors of Miss Possibilities, the first pageant in Asia for children with special needs.

The pageant, which took place at the Henry Lee Irwin Theater in Ateneo de Manila University last December 2, crowned Jennica Garcia, a professional teacher who has cerebral palsy. 

With the core theme "Beauty Knows No Boundaries," the third installment of the Miss Possibilities pageant celebrated the achievements, talent, and importance of people with special needs. 

According to OPPO Philippines' PR Manager Eason de Guzman, the brand shares Miss Possibilities' advocacy to raise awareness for equal treatment of people special needs. 

“We fully support the movement of Miss Possibilities Foundation in giving people with special needs equal treatment in society today,” he said. 

OPPO gave away free smartphone units to all Miss Possibilities contestants.

Apart from sponsoring the pageant, OPPO Philippines also gave smartphone units to all contestants, enabling them to capture their beauty queen moments and share their memorable experiences online. 

According to Suzanna Yuzon, the founder and president of Miss Possibilities Foundation, they aim for stronger promotion of their advocacy in 2018. She also thanked OPPO for partnering with them in eliminating discrimination. 

"Miss Possibilities Foundation gives those with special needs a platform to be celebrated without being judged or excluded because of their differences. We cherish those differences and would like to thank OPPO Philippines for doing the same,” she said. 

For next year, Miss Possibilities will be holding various medical missions, workshops, and other programs for families with special needs. To volunteer or donate, you may send a message to the official Facebook page of Miss Possibilities Foundation.
