I was born in the Netherlands, but my parents are from Suriname. I am 23 Years old and was Born in Amsterdam the Netherlands, but raised in Almere city.

I currently live in Almere. It’s the newest city of the Netherlands and very fast growing. Also do I study Interior design and Styling.

Why represent the Netherlands?

The Netherlands is the country I was born and raised in. As a young Dutch woman with an exotic twist I would like to stand for the diversity that we have in the Netherlands. The diversity these days is something beautiful, because we can learn a lot from each other. Knowledge is power!

Why did u apply for this pageant

I applied for this pageant because I like to be the best version of myself.

A beauty pageant is a beautiful challenge and a way to grow on a personal level. 

It is not only about beauty, but also about intelligence, dedication, hard work and co-operation.

And as a strong young women full of genuine intention I would like to inspire other females.

 

The Easiest thing is that you can stay yourself.

How are u enjoying the pageant so far?

There is never a dull moment during this pageant. 

I learn alot through different workshops. From lessons in good manners, dutch history, make-up and catwalk to getting inspired by stories of my pageant sisters.

Which sponsors have u had up till now?

Till now we are really spoiled by different sponsors such as a sport brand called Jimmore, Make up from California Tan and Delilah Cosmetics, lovely dresses from Dasonia, Make-up by Blanca Mendoza, Dance classes by Ultimate dance xperience, Catwalk training by Marlouk Bouwman, Lessons in good manners by Anne-Marie van Leggelo, Royal Delft, Tai Chi by Patrick Wolters, Dutchfoto, Katia Maes and last but not least the beautiful location ‘De Koning party & events’.

What is your favorite song at the moment

My favorite song of the moment is Unbreakable by Alicia keys. Its old but gold. I prefer to listen to oldschool so every now and then I’m back with another oldschool jam in my playlist.

When is the finale and what is the talent u are going to show?

The finale is on the 10th of june. As a interior design student I’m going to show my creative side, but the act is a surprise!

What is miss world all about?

For me Miss World is about humanitarianism, charity and a pure heart of gold.

Beauty is a gift, but it is the heart that needs to shine the most.

Do you have a charity?

The pageants have a charity for the Aeta tribe in the Philippines. This tribe has been chased away from their own land and 

deserve their own safe place in the Filipino Society. We are working on a safe spot and building a school for them. I am thinking about many creative ways to help these people. It is painful to see how people are not being  accepted on their own land by their own people. In the Netherlands we have our rights and resources to solve social issues.

But in the Philippines they can really use our helping hand.

What do u do and eat to stay fit?

I drink a lot of water to stay hydrated and eat a lot of fresh clean food.

You can find me in the gym often so I eat a lot of proteins such as eggs, fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables.

Every now and then I treat myself with my favorite guilty pleasure, ice cream.

Would you say more ladies should do pageants? 

Yes! let’s break the stereotype image that its only about beauty.

It’s about being your true self, intelligence and inner beauty.

What is the hardest thing about pageants

The hardest thing for me is that I have to pass a exam next to this pageant and I have a few jobs on the side.

Sometimes you don’t have a lot of time for yourself, but everything is for a good purpose so 

I’m enjoying every step along the way.

What is the easiest thing about pageants?

The Easiest thing is that you can stay yourself. It is your best representation!
