Filipino-Australian Kathleen Paton won the title Miss Teen International 2017 during the pageant night held on 23 September at the Playhouse Theater Suan Lum Night Bazaar Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. Kathleen represented the Philippines Visayas region.

Aside from the major title, Kathleen also won the special award Miss Charming.

Kathleen represented the Philippines Visayas region. She was born in Boracay and hopes to make Aklan more known to the world.


Paton is currently studying in Australia.

Paton in a Facebook interview recently said aside from Boracay, she wants to promote other towns in Aklan.

“Boracay is popular on its own. I want to focus on promoting the beauty that is Aklan,” she said particularly mentioning the caves and cold springs of Nabas town where she grew up.

She said the title gives her the opportunity to invite everyone to visit Aklan, be it for shopping, spelunking, adventures, or just be one with nature.

Paton said that through her title, she will promote the essence of beauty, friendship, and culture, which are in line with the pageant’s main advocacies.

Beauty, according to her, means promoting a clean and pristine environment, and not just personal attributes. Friendship meanwhile is needed according to her to promote harmony among communities.

She likewise encouraged especially the youth to love their own culture.

“We should embrace and promote our culture while at the same time discovering what other cultures have to offer,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Sangguniang Bayan of Malay has recently approved a resolution on commending and congratulating Paton.

SB Member Jupiter Gallenero said it was to recognise the honour brought by Paton to the island of Boracay and Aklan. (PNA)
