Congratulations on being one of the finalists of Miss Universe Ireland this year. How do you feel?
I am so excited to be part of Miss Universe Ireland 2017, this year the girls are so lovely and amazing and every each one of them deserves and is worthy to represent Ireland.
What was your key motivation for entering the competition?
My key motivation was to get myself out there, step out of my comfort zone and be able to advocate for different charities and have a voice that's heard.
5 words to describe your country ?
Beautiful - Friendly - Magical - Lively - Historical
What qualities a woman should have to represent a whole nation?
A woman representing her nation should be polite, smart and outgoing.
Many Misses have said their dream since a child was to participate in a pageant as prestigious as Miss World (or Miss Universe), is it your case? And if so why?
I have never competed in pageants before so this is huge for me. I think watching the show every year it had crossed my mind that I would like to participate but I never really came around to applying until this year.
What has been the biggest challenge you have faced in your life ?
Biggest challenge that I am still working on is to stop comparing myself to other people as we all have something special inside of us that makes us unique.
What would you advise any young girl out there who has a dream of being a queen one day?
Be yourself, educate yourself and be kind.
Your favorite beauty queen ?
