What are some things you have

learned about yourself through

competing?

There are so many things which

we can learn from our competitors

for making ourselves better

not for competing with them.

Everyone has some strengths

and weaknesses. So I can learn

to make their strengths my

strengths too and if they are

weak at something I could try to

convert those weaknesses as my

opportunity to grow. Competition

always pushes is to grow

our level, to do better we were

already doing, to raise our level

so it’s good to have competition

many people are afraid of competition

but think for a moment

if we don’t have any competition

in whatever the work we’re doing.

How hard we’re gonna try ?

And how this is gonna affect our

growth ? how much you would

be able to grow without competition.

Competition provides me

a motive to grow if I don’t have

any inner strong motive of self

growth. So embrace the competition

and see it as a opportunity to

grow and learn.

What attributes do you think are

important to have when competing?

but not become the ass kisser ok.

Lol... Always be up to date about

Fashion and trend. Be creative

and able to think out of box. Of

course, never give up no matter

how hard it is. Whiling to learn

and to sacrifice your sleeping

time.

How has your experiences as a

model in the fashion industry

changed your life?

I think there is nothing much

change when I become a model

in the fashion industry beside

then people start to get to know

me. I was a fashion blogger before

I become a model so despite

then the time different that make

me sometimes have to wake up

in the middle of the night to

complete SL fashion show I think

nothing much is change physically

in my SL life. But mentally

I think I can feel that after all

this whole experience I get from

competing I realize I have a different

way handling my problem

especially when it includes my

mental and emotions. I m calmer

now, despite then talking I listen

and observed more.

What would you hope to add to

this legacy of Miss and Mister

Elegance?

be different. I think it is time

for all of us to make change and

maybe looking back time during

the high time of Fashion in

between 2009 and 2013 where

models wear creativity and arts

on stage not just one piece of

dress. I understand most pageant

allowed their candidates

to have a specific designer for

a custom made dress. We don’t

actually need a custom made for

our whole dress but we can still

work together with few designers

to complete an outfit. These

ways more designer will have

the opportunity to get involved

and grow. I hope Miss & Mister

Elegance would make it compulsory

for every candidate to

mixed and match all the challenge

outfits even for the finale.

Because we wanted to see how

creative, brilliant and brave the

models is as we are in virtual

world not in real life.

Is there anything you would like

to add?

I would like to thank to Miss &

Mister Elegance 2022 especially

to Martine and Dante and all the

team member for the opportunity

they gave us the candidate

to learn and develop. Thank you

elcome to Rouge

Magazine. Congratulations

on winning Mr Elegance

2022.

What has your pageant experience

been like?

I remember when I enjoyed

taking photos as I was asked to

be photographer for Miss and

Mister Elegance live auditions

and noticed that not many male

models had entered the competition,

and I’ve been thinking

about entering this year, and

thought “Sure, why not? I can

do this!”

Has it sunk in yet that you are

our reigning Mr Elegance 2022?

I achieve my goals when I have

finally completed all of my

challenges in the journey up

until the Grand Finale! I keep

on pushing myself to work hard

and never give up!

What advice would you give

someone on the fence about

competing?

Competing in a pageant is hard

work. Did you feel your journey

was worth it even if you had not

won the title in the end?

Yes, it’s really worth it in completing

competitions and always

give positive things from

Miss and Mister Elegance team

because everyone worked hard

and deserve to be winners.

Do you feel participating in

pageants teaches one determination

and responsibility?

Yes, I believe that participating

in pageants is very important

to take responsibility, to do the

work hard, completing, being

ready, and gaining good reputation.

What are some things you have

learned about yourself through

competing?

I have learned when I received

feedback from judges about

how some things needing better

improvement are very useful,

and learning there’s always

room for improving on perfection.

What attributes do you think are

important to have when competing?

How has your experiences as a

model in the fashion industry

changed your life?

I came back to Second Life two

years ago and saw things have

changed better than before,

so much that it has helped my

skills improve with the fashion

industry in the present.

What would you hope to add to

this legacy of Miss and Mister

Elegance?

That it’s worth to enter for the

fun, enjoyment of the competition,

getting great experiences

for the next time, and having

the opportunity to work hard.

Is there anything you would like

to add?

I would like to thank you so

much for inviting me, as I am

happy to give my interview

answers, so feel free if you

need to ask me any questions

or give me any advice for Miss

& Mister Elegance, I truly do

appreciate it!

I believe whoever enters this

competition that it’s worth

learning more skills and gaining

Teamwork, Knowledge, Determination

and Friendliness.

great experiences to help boost

30 confidence.
