12 Months of Beauty is the organization behind Miss Grand Netherlands, Supermodel Netherlands, Supermodel Netherlands, Mister Global Netherlands and Miss and Mister Supranational Netherlands.
This year the organization started an online Beauty Pageant to select the dutch representatives for Miss Grand, Miss Supranational and Supermodel International.
After many assignments and challenges there are still 6 girls that made it to the finals and have a change to wear one of the BaroQco crowns.
We would like to get to know these 6 great girls and let them introduce themselves to the world,
Let’s start with the first one, the lovely and beautiful Esmee Cornet
Who are you?
My name is Esmee Cornet I’m 26 years old and I’m a professional dancer and model. Currently I live in Hengelo a small town in the east of the Netherlands where I have my own dance school: Dansstudio X-Dance. I’m proud to say that I was a former dancer in Disney’s the Lion King musical and that I modelled for different brands all over the world.
When and how did you enter the world of beauty pageants?
I entered the pageant world when I was 17 years old. I was very young and just started my dance academy in Amsterdam. At that moment there was a photographer at a shoot that told me that I smiled a lot, that I had a very sparkly personality and that Queen of the East Netherlands would be a great opportunity for me. I had never heard of beauty pageants before but I looked it up and applied myself. By my surprise I won the regional title and went on competing for the Queen of the Benelux title. At the same time I participated in the Miss Intercontinental pageant. Even though I didn’t win, I loved all the new experiences.
Can you tell us your experience in the 12 Months of Beauty Online Pageant?
I had such a lovely experience as a 12 Months of Beauty finalist and I’m really honoured that I got to be a part of the first online pageant. I have deep respect for the organisation. They were so innovative in these difficult times with the variety of challenges they came up with. The communication was very clear and I could easily share any personal or private struggles with them. In the beginning it felt like a blind date feeling with the ladies
but now I’m grateful to say that they are my pageant sisters✨
What’s your life’s motto and how do you live your life by it?
I believe in holistic living, meaning there is no one way, one truth or one solution to all. We are all unique and each one of us leads their own life. I have always tried to find my own way in life and inspire others to do the same. Don’t be bound by the status quo but dare to venture further beyond!
How will your life be 10 years from now?
In 10 years I’ll be 36. I hope that I can still do what I love which is traveling the world, modelling, dancing, having my family and friends around and all healthy.
I see the dance school becoming a safe home to many more children and I would love to
have 2 kids and enjoy a happy life❤
Thank you Esmee, we want to wish you all the best for the finals…
