You will compete at the Miss Universe Finland Pageant. How will you prepare the contest ?
I have been working out and eating healthy for about a year now and this summer we Miss Finland semifinalists get to join in many different events and representing tasks which taught me social skills that will be needed if I get the chance to represent Finland in Miss Universe competition. I have been also practicing my speech, runaway walk and have been really getting into what being Miss Finland would really mean to me and what would I do if I won.
We are all unique so what would you say is something that makes you stand out from the other contestants?
I would propably stand out from the other consestants because of my interesting and unique hobbies in the musical field. I played violin for 15 years and sang in choir. Now I started playing harp which is pretty rare in Finland. Singing is also something I love to do in my free time. Playing different instruments has taught me patience and sustainability which I think helps me in relentlessly chase my dream of being Miss Finland.
Some people say that beauty pageants are degrading to women, same with fashion magazines. How can you convince them that they’re wrong?
I absolutely understand why somebody would feel like beauty pageants and fashion magazines are degrading to women but in my opinion that is because of ignorance. People often form their opinion based on what they see and read on tv and magazines. As I said previously being a beauty queen is not just a matter of looking beautiful in a bikini, which many can find being degrading to women, is a great way for women to get their voice heard and represent their own country. There is nothing degrading in that. A beauty queen is a competition or a model in a magazine are there usually by their own choice and that in my opinion highlights womens right to do as they want to do.
Who is your favorite beauty queen?
My favorite beauty queen... there are so many! I have to say Iris Mittenaere, Pia Wurtzbach and Olivia Culpo. They are all really beautiful, intelligent and "down to earth" type of women.
Thanks to the beautiful Tuuli for the interview. Pageants News wishes you all the very best for Miss Universe Finland 2017 pageant.
