When they were usually starting out, Nia and Tegan removed that they hid their personalities and simulated to be somebody they’re not to greatfully a judges.
“It was 5 years of competing over and over again. we consider we became my best when we was a 100 percent me and we wasn’t perplexing to be what we suspicion a judges wanted. we did that for so many years. The judges wanted a blonde? we painted my hair blonde!” Nia shared.
“I had a accurate same experience. we competed twice and afterwards on my third attempt, we won. I’ve been overthinking everything. I’ve been meditative approach too most about what other people design me to be. The final time we competed, we was usually Tegan and I’m really humorous. I’m not a really critical person. we adore laughing. we adore creation jokes. we went behind as that Tegan and that’s when we won. That’s my biggest square of advice. Just stay loyal to who we are,” Tegan added.
However, being prepared is usually as important. After winning Miss USA 2014, Nia removed that she lerned for over 6 months for Miss Universe. During this time, she worked on her runway walk, used responding thousands of speak questions, and kept adult with stream events.
“Be a thousand percent prepared. The some-more critical thing is your mind and where we are with yourself, though we improved have used your runway travel a thousand times, use a thousand speak questions, though still not change who we are. You don’t wish to uncover adult and be happy mentally though not be prepared for all else. So be prepared and be yourself and you’re golden,” Nia said.
Currently, there are over 80 contestants opposed for a Miss Universe crown. With such a slim chance, Tegan emphasized a significance of carrying a behind adult plan.
“There are so many girls that get unhappy by pageants. When they don’t win, they get so down and they don’t ever wish to consider about a word manifestation again, But we always consider it’s 30 girls’ dream, since there are 30 girls in a finals in Australia, though one girl’s destiny. It was meant to be partial of a trail for one girl. It’s not meant for everyone. It will occur to who it’s ostensible to occur to.”
“You have to have other goals and dreams as well. You can’t consider that ‘I don’t win that my life is over.’ Think about what we can do if we don’t win. It’s not a usually approach to be successful.”
This year, a 66th Miss Universe manifestation will lapse to Las Vegas, USA. While vehement for her hometown, Nia still feels morose after reading reports about a new Las Vegas shooting.
“We were here in a Philippines when that happened. Everything stopped for us, a debate stopped for us when it happened. We were articulate about it. we was praying for everybody out there.”
“It breaks my heart, a whole conditions that happened. Las Vegas is spiteful right now though there are always good people. I’ve always been told when we was little, when something bad’s going on, demeanour for good people, ‘cause there’re always good people who are going to assistance others.”
On what’s gripping them busy
Nia and Tegan started Universal Confidence, a array of workshops that aims to assistance girls struggling with low self-esteem.
“We speak about how to be assured in everything, not indispensably pageantry. We speak about interviews, relationships, and physique image.”
Apart from Universal Confidence, Nia and Tegan are also bustling operative on their particular careers. Both of them have several hosting gigs lined up. Tegan is hosting an eventuality during a Melbourne Cup, that is one of a biggest horse-racing eventuality in Australia, while Nia has recently landed a shred on a TV show. –Rappler.com
