The magnetic personality of a title holder can attract people’s attention to sensitize the public about targeted social problems. This in turn helps raise funds for their eradication. The cause differs from country to country depending on the local problems. Tuuli Koskiaho, who will be competing in Miss Finland 2017, would like to spread warmth, good spirit and fight against discrimination if she wins. "Being in a beauty pageant has been my dream since I was a little girl. As a child I was attracted by all the beauty and glamour like any other little princess but as I grew older I realized that being a beauty queen is so much more than just the external things. Beauty queen is a goodwill ambassador and she is interested in other people and things happening around her." she explained

Tuuli also considers that a beauty queen should be down to earth. The story is too common, every year in the Miss Universe Pageant we heard that several candidates consider themselves as Divas. So, don’t let success go to your head. Be humble. Humility is a sign of strength, not weakness. People with humility possess an inner peace. They’re modest about their achievements, grounded in their values, and they have nothing to prove to others. They’re down to earth, comfortable in their own skin, and quietly proud.

I had the opportunity to interview the beautiful Tuuli on her preparation for the next Miss Finland Pageant. The beauty queen currently studies nordic languages in the university of Helsinki. She works part time in a grocery store and has been working in customer service for few years now. Lets know a little more about this beautiful and inspiring woman through this interview!

Is the mental game important to your success in pageants? The top titleholders think so. Most contestants and directors believe that controlling the mind is vital to your success in pageantry. We all know that we must think positive and believe we can win. 

Confidence and Self-Image plays a huge role in being able to perform at your best when the judges are in control of your score. You have to have the ability to succeed but you also have to be able to stand out as the “winner” to those who hold your fate in their hands. Mental Management is a great way to learn how to use pressure to your advantage, build self-image, focus on your strengths, get your goals and gain the confidence needed to live up to your potential. 

The gorgeous Nadia Lavoie, who will be competing for the title of Miss Universe Canada later this year, thinks that preparing for an event like this is not just about the physical aspect - "You need to know how to deal with your stress, you need to learn a lot about yourself and you need to figure out if you’re doing it for the good reasons." she explained.

She has been very busy those last months to prepare for the national competition and to be ready. For the last three months, she had a personnal trainer - "I had to follow a strict nutrition plan and I had to go to the gym four to five times a week to get the results I wanted. One thing very interesting I learned when I was reading «Awaken the giant within» from Tony Robbins is «you feel good and know that you’re in control of your life in a body that radiates vitality and allows you to accomplish your outcomes». How can you achieve what you want if you don’t take care of yourself first ? I wasn’t only seeing a personnal trainer but I was also seeing a life coach."

I had the opportunity to interview the beautiful Nadia on her preparation for the next Miss Universe Canada Pageant. Lets know a little more about this inspiring woman below!
