Pero alam niyo bang malaki ang ginampanang papel ng Pilipinas sa success story ng Thai beauty queen?

Ito ay dahil Pilipino ang pageant trainer o pageant coach ni Anna.


Sa pamamagitan ng direct messaging, eksklusibong na-interview ng Philippine Entertainment Portal ( ang pageant coach na si RL Lacanienta.

Higit isang dekada na siyang pageant coach.

Si RL ang founder ng RL’s Angels, isang pageant training camp. Naging coach din siya ng maraming Pinoy pageant titleholders.

Isinailalim ni RL si Anna sa “intense training” sa loob ng dalawang linggo para sumabak sa Miss Universe Thailand.

Ayon kay RL, “When I coach, I cover all aspects talaga—from mental, to physical, all the way to technical aspects, such as mind-setting, personality development, pasarela, communications both in casual interview and formal Q and A, social media etiquette, character development, styling and packaging, shoot and stage performance and a lot more.”


Nakabase sa Pilipinas si RL at may mga out-of-the-country trips para mag-conduct ng workshops at training.

Kuwento ni RL, kinomisyon siya ng team ni Anna para i-train ang Thai beauty queen.

“Her Thai team flew me in all the way to Bangkok to personally conduct an intensive training with her before their pageant commenced in July.

“I went there twice—one in April and one in June. It was a total of approximately 2 weeks of training.”

Overall training ang ginawa ni RL kay Anna na hindi nagkaroon ng formal training sa beauty pageant.

Tinuruan niya si Anna sa pasarela, overall visual presentation, at mind-setting.

Nagkaroon din sila ng sessions para sa interviews at question-and-answer sa English, ang aspeto kung saan nababatikos si Anne.

Gayunpaman, si Anne ay sumagot sa Thai sa Q and A ng national pageant noong July 30.

Ayon kay RL, “We still keep in touch after I went back to the Philippines and monitored her performance and development while the pageant is ongoing.”

Filipino pageant coach RL Lacanienta says he gave Anna Sueangam-ian an intense training for two weeks.


Inisa-isa ng coach ang mga katangian ng Thai beauty queen bilang trainee na kapuri-puri.

Isa na rito ang pagiging professional ni Anna.

Saad niya, “She always comes on time, she is very dedicated, and committed to each and every part of our training.


“She pushes herself to her limits even if at times she is having a difficulty. She never stops till she gets it.”

Gusto rin daw ni RL ang pakikitungo ni Anna sa kanyang mga katrabaho.

“What I like about Anna the most is she is very courteous, respectful, and obedient, not only to me, but to the rest of her team.

“She pays attention to the instructions and works on it effectively.

“She's such a fighter. And these are the qualities that make her standout as a beauty queen.”

Naging emosyonal daw si RL nang masungkit ni Anna ang Miss Universe Thailand 2022.

“I am super-duper proud and happy for her. Because I have seen and witnessed what she has been through, how she worked hard to make it all the way to the top.

“She really fought fair and square starting from ground zero.

“I also got the chance to get closer to knowing her life story and challenges in life before she has reached to this point.


“You will be inspired if you knew her humble beginnings. She really deserved the crown,” sabi ng Filipino pageant coach.

RL says he was able to discover Anna's inspiring story.

Ang “humble beginnings” na tinutukoy ni RL ay dahil ang ama ni Anna ay isang garbage collector at ang ina niya ay isang streetsweeper at kasambahay.


Pero nagawang makapagtapos ni Anna sa kursong Liberal Arts and Sciences sa Kasetsart University sa Thailand.


Bukod kay Anna, marami na ring na-train si RL na naging titleholders.

Siya ang naghasa kay Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental 2022 Gabrielle Basiano.

Ani RL, “I have been training Gabby since 2019, so that's approximately 3 years already.”

Pinuri ni RL si Gabrielle dahil sa pagiging fast learner nito at madaling turuan.

“She is not a quitter. Give her a day, and she will rise above again and fight!”

Inamin ng coach na personal ang relasyon nila ni Gabrielle dahil para siyang kuya ng beauty queen.

“I'm very proud that all her hard work have finally paid off,” sambit niya.
