Alfe Uy, a Siliman University graduate, will compete with other Asian women in the competition arranged by Pegasus, an events management company known for the Miss Queen of India beauty pageant.
Uy was named second runner-up for the title of Sinulog Festival Queen in 2009.
The 28-year-old also won the recently-concluded Miss Fil-Independence Dubai 2015, beating 11 other candidates from various parts of the Philippines.
Europe Times describes Miss Asia 2015 as a "pan Asia beauty pageant" that aims to provide "a platform for young girls with dreams in their starry eyes, but no formal opportunity or backing to launch themselves into the much coveted career in fashion, film, advertising and allied glamour industries"
All revenues generated by the show will go to the 100 Life Challenge, a project that aims to give heart surgeries to 100 patients in India.
Miss Asia 2015 will be held on August 18th at Le meridian in Kochi, Kerala, India. —Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
