Memories from the Miss Europe World Next Top Model Pageant
For you, what constitutes true beauty ?
Without any doubt, true beauty is a mix between : A strong personality, hard work and a healthy body.
Some people say that beauty pageants are degrading to women, same with fashion magazines. How can you convince them that they're wrong?
I wouldn't like to convince them because there are many opinions in this world. The industry workes with emotions which trigger our communities in different ways so no need to convince anybody.
What is your opinion about pageants that are being held worldwide for kids (-18 year old) ? Do you support these kind of pageants or are you against them? Please explain
I am against it because young girls are not ready to support the pressure from beauty contestants. When you are a child, you don't have enough distance from the business world.
