Fil-Canadian teen beauty creating waves on local shores

Shawna Warhurst has barely stepped foot on Philippine shores but she’s already making waves among local beauty mavens.

A cohost at the launch of, the pretty Filipino Canadian teen is the current Miss Teenage Maple Ridge, a title she won at the 2016 Miss Teenage British Columbia pageant. She will be representing her city and province in the Miss Teenage Canada pageant on July 17 to 24.

But that is not the only title Shawna has under her belt. 

The 18-year-old charmer also won the title of Miss Teen Philippines of the World 2015 that led her to joining Miss Teen Universe. She did not win the crown but was awarded Miss Congeniality. That same year, she won Miss Calendar Girl, taking home four awards: Most Creative Outfit, Miss Bikini Beautiful, Best in Long Dress, and Miss Photogenic.

In 2014, Shawna was crowned Miss Teen Philippines of the World, where she was recognized as the Most Photogenic, Best in Interview, and landed in the Top 3 in the talent portion.

Shawna owes her ravishing looks to an exceptional gene pool, an amalgamation of Filipino, Spanish, English and Irish bloodlines. But she is also one teen with a good head on her shoulders, so to speak.

“I’ve learned that true beauty is loving and respecting yourself and your own body,” she adds.

She believes that beauty is not only about maintaining one’s outer appearance but also maintaining a healthy and positive outlook.

Shawna, who will only be here for a short time, is currently testing local waters for opportunities. Already she has bagged an endorsement deal with a local skincare line, YSA Skin and Body Experts. We’re pretty sure this is just the beginning.
