5th of July: Pre-judging
The competition was held on the Greek island of Zakynthos in an old Greek amphitheatre. The settings were amazing and the competition only started when the sun had set. This meant hair, makeup and tanning at least three hours before the comp. A lot of effort goes into looking comp ready. I couldn't have done it without the help of my two girlfriends Amalia and Tran.
Prejudging included two rounds, first bikini and then sportswear. Both rounds included a T-walk and comparisons (four quarter turns). I made sure I just had fun with the rounds and gave my best performance.
When I was called front and centre in both rounds I knew I had made top three.
6th July: Finals
Once again, three hours before the comp I had to redo my hair, makeup and tan. At the competition, there were two rounds: bikini and sportswear.
However during the bikini round only three names were called to continue onto the sportswear round and one of those names was mine. During the sportswear round I was then given first place.
I was over the moon, as all my hard work had finally paid off and excited, as many doors will now open.
A couple of people have asked me what I had over the other competitors. I had stage presence. After watching a video of the event I was the one who looked the most confident and like I was having the most fun onstage. You can see my t-walk video below.
