World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Please tell us about your education.

I got my education in Law school so I'm a lawyer. My second education is as a Interior designer.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does women Empowerment means to you?

It's not about emancipation, It's more than that. It's about women having the ability to choose who to marry and whether to marry at all. Ability to choose the type of profession she wants to pursue. Ability for modern women to own a business. At the same time to be beautiful, be a mother and a wife.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history.

Before I turned 45 I've never seen a pageant. I didn't know what is it about or where they take place. Only in cinema I've seen a glimpse of a pageant. Last year one my girlfriends encouraged me to do a pageant in Ukraine, where I can talk about my company, about me and about my platform. So I decided to join the pageant. What's funny, never in my life I imagined myself on the stage wearing big evening dress with pageant glam make up. But now looking back it was a great experience. I think this pageant experience woke up a young girl in me and all my dreams came to life when I was a young girl. I'm excited because I received an invitation to compete in a pageant taking place in USA.


World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant?

My first pageant inspired me to be more self confident. It helped me with my public speaking, gave me more possibilities for philanthropy.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?

I am from Ukraine, and now there is a brutal war in my country. A lot of people die, a lot of women and young girls are tortured by Russian soldiers. This pageant is a great platform, where I can talk about the issues that are happening in my country. It brings important international attention to all evil that is happening now in the center of Europe.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about?

There are a lot of different pageants, but Transcontinental Pageant - Ms. Universe TCP is a pageant about women empowerment against domestic violence, against any violence - for children , animals... There are different categories - Ms. and Mrs. - married woman and not married. Also there different age groups.


World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What makes your director different from others?

Oh, I think of myself as a great woman, strong, beautiful and very passionate about work. I'm very passionate about being against domestic violence. I'm easy going and a hard working person. I think people would be excited to get to know me.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition?

Competition was almost one week long. We had a lot of fun excursions. We visited a Friend house for middle age children. We had fun at different attractions. We had a group dinner and did some sight seeing. One day we had a conference where each delegate had 5 minutes for speech to talk about the most important issues she cared about in her platform. The interview portion was with judges. The main show took place in the theatre where I could showcase on sage my amazing evening dress, and model my black swimsuit.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition.

Since this was my first International pageant. I was excited to experience and meet different cultures and to learn about different traditions. The experience gave me new self confidence, but on the absolutely different level.


World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Who would you recommend your system to?

The pageant was more than perfect, I don't know how it could be any better. I definitely recommend it to everyone.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for.

Before the war I would teach free classes in a University for the people of third age. I would motivated them to start a business and learn about the government rules etc. But all that changed after February 24. My little production department changed from sewing curtains and cushions to making body armor. It was a very hard process, both moral and physical. Unless war ends my platform will not change. I will do everything in my power to support and help our soldiers needs. When I can I'll use my money to buy medicaments and other necessities for our soldiers.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What appearances have you done with your title?

When I returned to Ukraine after the pageant many of the conferences were closed due to war. People are busy with other problems. Everyday different territories are bombarded with air raid. Couple times a day we are interrupted by alerts of potential air raid. So now it is impossible to make any appearance with my title in Ukraine. All I can do is use social media to get my message out and do interviews. Because of the war peoples are mostly negative about any appearances with my sash, title and crown if I use it.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are some of your achievements?

Most important things in my life is my business, my family, my title, those are my achievements. I managed to achieve all that, except for one.


World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls?

Every girl is special, with her own experience, platform and beauty. It is to hard to decide what makes me stand out from all those other beautiful girls. Maybe that I'm always myself, that I never put any mask to hide who I am. It is impossible to hide.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner.

Oh, it was crazy! When they called my name I was in shock did not react for a second. Maybe because I did not understand what are happened. It was not like another pageants where the winner is happy and crying or something like that. I just went to the center of stage like nothing happened. All the emotions come to me little bit later, may be one month later. During pageant I was alone - not one person came with me from Ukraine. So when I won I was without my family or my friends so at that moment I did not feel like a victory.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen?

First of all, in means a lot of responsibility in all parts of my life- I must stay beautiful and in good physical form. I should draw society's attention to important issues. It is a big responsibility that I am ready to bear.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did competing in pageants helped your life?

My life did not change after the pageant competition. What I did before it- will do after. Due to current circumstances not much can be done. But I'm not going to sit about and wait, I'll do everything myself.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image?

During all of my life I keep myself-esteem in good form. So, the pageant only convinced me that I did everything right.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel?

Yes, I am an inspiration to a lot of girls. They ask me about different things - starting with nutrition and personal care. I'm was overwhelmed with joy when I received over thousand messages from girls in Ukraine about my title and gratitude in this difficult time for my country. I give them hope for the future, otherwise they would give up and say goodbye due to the war. Knowing this it tore my heart. But their words gave me confidence that competing and winning the title wasn't in vain. It showed me that winning the title and Inspiring all those girls was the main reason I did it.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over?

First of all I was open and easy going. I was friendly with everybody. Starting with staff in the hotel. This is my usual self, not just during the pageant. But the main strategy was to be sincere in your speech during an interview and to tell the truth. On stage I was confident and graceful.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition?

I received an invitation to the pageant only one month before it took place. I did not know if I can participate in the competition, there were so many obstacles I had to overcome. First I had to obtain USA visa, but all the offices were closed due to war. I had to come up with a solution. Also all flights from Ukraine were canceled. I had to find an option to depart from other countries. I solved all those problems only one week before the competition took place. So I had no time to prepare for my competition. During my flight I wrote my interview speech. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk?

First you need to buy comfortable shoes. Make sure to brake them in with practice before the competition. That way you'll be comfortable. Believe me if you don't break them you won't be able to have a light walk and relaxed smile from all the pain in your feet.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress?

First thing you must do is to imagine yourself on stage with your dream dress. Then make sure that the dress makes you feel comfortable easy to put on. Do not assume there will be anyone that will help you to zip up or lace up. Assume you will need to do everything by yourself. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview?

For the winning interview make sure to catch up on current news, If you don't it won't look good. Make sure to speak what you know and it's correct. Make sure that your vice is loud and confident. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it?

The feedback I received was that I walked too fast on stage. I need to learn to pace my walk and take my time on stage by walking slower.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest?

Some girls tried really hard to be friendly by putting fake friendly face, it was easy to read.

Other girls had fake attitude which make them unnaturally friendly, which also did not look good. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: Any modeling or acting experience?

No I do not have any modeling or acting experience. But I do have some education in media. World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What are your plans for 2022/23 as a Queen?

My plan for 2023 as a Beauty Queens is to pledge a campaign against domestic violence. Currently public interest is war at home. But there is a big problem not only with domestic violence but also with sexual violence. Ukrainian women are running way from war by going abroad where they experience sexual violence. One year is a short time to accomplish everything on my to do list, which makes me sad. But If I start now I'm sure I'll be able to achieve my goals.

World Class Beauty Queens Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?

I want to show that being 46 your old woman you can accomplish anything you set your mind to and be self made person, successful business owner, mother and a wife. Even with country at war I was able to bring crown back home from one of the most prestigious pageants in the world. I want to change the attitude in Ukraine towards pageants, I want to show that participating and winning the title is a good thing for the person and for the country. It's a difficult journey for the individual as a person and as a Queen that needs to be celebrated.
