Stephany Kluivert will represent the Netherlands at the Miss Globe 2015 pageant. This pageant will be held in Toronto, Canada and the finals will take place on oktober 8th. Stephanie is a newcomer in the world of beauty pageants. We talked with her at the introduction party of the finalists of the Miss Avantgarde pageant. She was very friendly and had an radiant personality.
Want to get to know her? She was so kind to answer 10 questions for us…..
Who is Stephany Kluivert?
I am Stephany Kluivert. I was born and bred in Amsterdam. I am a currently studying to become a ”Pedagogische Medewerkster (teaching assistant).” This is my final year at school.
There was no national pageant for your title. How did you become Miss Globe Netherlands 2015? Would you have preferred to participate in a national pageant?
The Miss Globe Netherlands organization made a conscious decision not to do a full traditional pageant as we know it. They had a casting/selection day. I heard about it and I applied. To my pleasant surprise, I was crowned Miss Globe Netherlands 2015. So would I have preferred to participate in a national pageant? My answer would be yes and no. Yes, because I would have had more contenders to compete against, which would have been a positive challenge/achievement for me personally to have won. On the other hand, I would say no, because the approach the organization took was a step closer in reaching my goal of being Miss Globe Netherlands 2015.
How are you preparing for the big international finals?
I am preparing and taking all lessons and trainings that I am being offered. I am taking catwalk classes, following hair/make up workshops, and public-speaking sessions. I also do some practice in my private time.
You are a newcomer in the dutch beauty pageant world. What was your opinion before you became a beauty queen yourself about beauty pageants and did your opinion change?
Before I became a beauty queen, my opinion was that beauty pageants were not only a portrayal of outward beauty but also a display of brains, character, and personality. This is why I always wanted to become a beauty queen ever from the time I was a child and my opinion has not changed till date.
Your national director told us that she wanted a modern queen. What is modern about you, and what is traditional about you?
I am a modern queen because I am part of a generation where as a female, you have an equal opportunity to get an education as a male. With education comes independence. Something traditional about me is my aw for traditional aspects of my country. For example, The Netherlands is somewhat synonymous with cheese so I love cheese. Besides that, I would rather make use of a bicycle as a means of transportation, than travel by car if I can help it.
What makes you proud to be a young dutch woman?
What makes me proud to be a young dutch woman is the fact that in our country, everyone gets an equal opportunity to achieve their goals in life irrespective of their background, race or creed.
What will you do to promote the Miss Globe pageant in the Netherlands?
To promote the Miss Globe pageant in the Netherlands, I would make a promotional film about my journey as Miss Globe Netherlands 2015. The film
will show all the projects I have worked on during my reign, my activities and my achievements during this period. I would make use of this film to target
young girls so that I can be a source of inspiration to them.
Most beauty pageants support a good cause. Which good cause would you like to support and why?
For my good cause, I would like to focus on obese children. In my field of study/work, I have had several encounters with this group and I am often
confronted with the personal struggle they face in order to get accepted by society. I would help them eradicate the repercussion of bullying on them
and restore their self-confidence. The ultimate goal would be for them to lose weight in a healthy manner.
What makes you the next Miss Globe International and what will you do to accomplish this?
My ability to inspire others is one of the factors I believe qualify me to be Miss Globe 2015. I am able to inspire and enlighten people about acceptance. The reason wars are tearing nations apart is due to lack of acceptance . The world would be a more peaceful haven if we all could respect one another’s choice of religion, political preferences, sexual orientation and other differences that naturally exist between humans. We can all not be the same, and there is beauty in diversity.
How about Stephany in 10 years?
In 10 years’ time, I would be an educated woman who is independent enough to decide which course her life should take. All the goals and aspirations I
have now would have been accomplished by then. In that time, hopefully, I would have established my own family
