Megan Wu

Miss Chinese Chicago 2019 First Princess

Hi! My name is Megan Wu, and I am so excited to be your Miss Chinese Chicago 2019 First Princess! What an amazing journey it has been leading up to this crowning moment; I was overwhelmed by the love and support from my family and friends in the crowd and so grateful for the opportunity I just gained to further my commitment to the underserved. What started as a challenge to push myself outside of my comfort zone became an avenue for me to gain both a sisterhood of strong and resilient women and a platform to empower Chinese individuals to better understand and manage their health. As a physician-in-training, this opportunity to engage with the Chinese community in a way that allows them to lead healthier lives is invaluable, and I don’t take it for granted.

My challenge to you is to try something that scares you, whether that is performing in front of audiences or taking the notoriously hard computer science class or even trying hip hop classes. I am not saying the experience will be easy; in fact, it may be difficult and uncomfortable. But know that you will come out on the other side a stronger, better version of yourself, and it may just open doors for you that you never knew existed.

Shout out to Miss Chinese Chicago founder and director, Victoria Ng, my forever Queen, Brittany Lau, and my forever First Princess, Jamie Moy, for their expertise, patience, and unwavering support over the last three months of preparation.

It is an honor and privilege to serve as your Miss Chinese Chicago 2019 First Princess. Cheers to an upcoming year filled with service, community engagement, and new experiences!

I am thrilled and honored to be part of this year’s pageant! I am grateful for this platform to further my commitment and responsibility to the underserved and this opportunity to grow in confidence, leadership, and pride for my Chinese-American heritage.

Thank you for your support and see you in August!
