The women, who range in age from 18-30, will performed five categories: an introductory dance choreographed to Rihanna’s “Hard,” a costume number in which the models wear their country’s traditional dress, a lingerie competition, an evening-wear competition and a question and answer category.

Schon explained,”A lot of people promise that they will make you a supermodel, or get you into this movie, or that movie, but you have to pay,” Schon said. Her mission is to provide the models with a support network. “I just wanted to do something where I can help other women.”She does not charging entry fees.

Diaspora was founded by a former model who emigrated in United States at the age of 19. Wanting to pursue her dream in modeling, but not able to do so because of an accident, Gabriela, decided to form an organization where she could help, promote, and educate other young foreign females in pursuing their dreams.
