AN INSPIRING STORY OF FINDING ONE'S TRUE SELF
Fiona Solis, proud transgender born in Ormoc City, Philippines on the first day of June, 1987. She is currently residing in Bangkok, Thailand.
Fiona is the youngest in her family and had to learn to live without a maternal love at a very early age when breast cancer cut short the life of her beloved mother and her father raised the family and became both father and mother to the family. Hard as it was, she had to let go of the pain and craft a life of which her mother would have been proud. At age 12 Fiona left home to find a job so she could earn enough to pay for her high school studies, and six years later, after much determined effort, she graduated from high school and went out into the world. Fiona may not have grown up with many material things in life while she was growing up, but this was made up for the love and determination learned from her Father.
Going out into the world and chasing success, and pride and a sense of herself wasn't always fun and it was never easy, but it has taught her the value of patience, strength, hope, faith and courage. At times life has devolved into pure blood, sweat and tears. It has been a hell of a ride but there are no regrets. All the pain, all the mistakes are part of the invaluable experience of life and have made her who she is today.
Fiona is very much an explorer, and traveling extensively inside and outside of the Philippines, wandering close to home and also to the other side of the world. She has a passion to learn the ins and outs of different cultures and to become friends with people whose background and experiences are totally different from hers. This explains why she loves being a tourist guide so much. She's able to see, travel, explore and discover the most beautiful scenic spots and shared them with the world.
The pursuit of beauty and the belief in the power of change is also why Fiona started joining transgender beauty pageants when she was ten and she won the title of Little Miss Transgender. The love of her father and very supportive family empowered her to join pageants in different barangays, cities and provinces of the Philippines. From the very beginning of her pageant career it was clear to her that the winning or losing was not what was important. Instead Winning or losing did not matter to Fiona as long as she did her best and the most What mattered was a love of the sport and showing the power of determination and self-creation. Fiona was excited to participate in her biggest beauty pageant in 2006, the annual Miss Transgender Mandaue competition. Later, in 2009 Fiona participated in The Queen of Cebu and placed as one of 21 finalists chosen from a starting field of over 100 participants. Her next goal is to join the Queen International Beauty Pageant held every year in Pattaya Thailand.
