At only 17, she was selected as Miss Spain. The gorgeous Patricia Yurena represented Spain at both the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants. On November 9, 2013 she competed to succeed Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo, eventually finishing as 1st Runner-Up to Gabriela Isler of Venezuela. She is only the second Spanish woman to place 1st Runner-Up (the first one was Teresa Sánchez López in 1985). Almost 4 years after the gorgeous Patricia is a successful international model.

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!

She ended Guyana's drought at Miss World. Now, Rafieya Husain is poised to do the same for Guyana at the 2017 Miss Universe Contest. Born in Guyana and spent much of her young life in the country, the beauty queen later moved to the United States where she pursued her higher education. Rafieya is described as someone that is determined to affect change and provide the women who are of the system with the skill sets they need to be successful leaders of tomorrow.

Having been a victim herself of domestic violence, Rafieya has worked tirelessly to raise awareness and to educate young people on the early signs of dating violence. In her efforts to improving the lives of those affected by domestic violence, she has established an outreach centre on the Essequibo Coast in Guyana under the name RIVA. 

Pageant followers are highly positive about Rafieya’s chances at Miss Universe, and who knows she might just win an international crown this year. I had the opportunity to chat with her only a few days after her crowning as the new Miss Universe Guyana. I hope you will enjoy this interview!
