The Miss Brazil, and Brazil itself, are responsible for one of the most successful campaigns in history of Miss Universe, with two winners and several runners-up, finalists and semifinalists. It was considered one of the best organized and most successful beauty pageants during the 1950s and 1960s and is believed that much of the fame of the beauty of Brazilian women comes from this.
Stephany Pim will represent the state of Esperito Santo at the prestigious national pageant. Lets know a little more about her through this interview!
Congratulations on being one of the finalists of Miss Universe Brazil this year. How do you feel?
So excited, actually I have no words to explain. To be part of this pageant means a big responsability and also a big pleasure.
You're Brazilian. In a nation that calls itself the beauty-queen capital of the world. What do you think about the pressure of being a beauty queen ?
If you are from the country that calls as the beauty-queen capital you need to be more than beauty face and body. When we have some prejudments like this it's more difficult to get attention to do diference and to inspire. In the new generation of Misses we had no place to empty minds. The only pressure that I feel it's to represent my brazilian people.
You also competed at Miss Mundo Brazil.. Which system is your favorite, Miss World or Miss Universe ?
It was amazing to be a part of Miss World Brazil and now I have a chance to be Miss Universe Brazil. In the Latin America it's true that Miss Universe is more famous, if I win I hope to use this plataform to make difference in another lifes. My favorite pageant it's that one that give to me opportunity to show who I am. I had that in both of them.
What was your most memorable moment as a pageant girl ?
When I was crying because I didn't win and a lot of girls called my state with love. That moment made me think about what means win or lose. I feel myself as a champion. They recognized me. If you are part of beauty pageant you first need to be strong and after need to learn about it.
What does it feel like to be a beauty queen and wear a crown?
It's about don't wear beautiful dresses or crown and make a difference every day, give shine in little eyes and inspire old souls. It's about have something more behind outside beauty.
Tell me something about yourself and your work. What do you actually do, and have done in the past?
I just complete 23 years old last friday. I never stop to think about my future, I work as a professional model since 2012 and also study Production Engineering. My big dream it's to be a singer after to be Miss Universe... Hehe. From my first beauty pageant until now I've never felt more prepared to represent my country.
Your favorite beauty queen ?
Pia Wurtzbach!!!! I can feel her soul. She makes me happy just because of who she is. It's something that I try to share as a Miss.
