To get the candidates for Miss Virtual World 2013 known a bit better I asked all of them the same 7 questions. I thought to follow the challenge it is always great to know a bit about all the ladies before and see who you wanna give your love and support to
So, meet Miss Australia 2013, Betty Draesia…
WM: “Please introduce yourself and tell us about your personality and tell us why you entered MVW 2013.”
BD: “Hi everyone! I’m Betty Draesia model in Second Life since may 2011 and I enjoy this job every single day. I choose to represent the country of Australia because since I was a little kid I felled in love with this amazing country and I will move there this winter (my dream is coming true), so even if I’m Italian my heart belongs to Australia.
What can I say about my personality?.. I’m pretty sweet, and I don’t have a difficult character… especially here where everything is a game to me! Anyway in SL I also learned how this “game” can give us deep feelings. An important step, that made me understand how the game can switch somehow to reality, was meeting two people here in SL that became two dear friends in RL.
I’m trying to keep SL as a very good and positive part of my spare time. I’m spending a lot of time at the moment here and I like to be surrounded of positive and funny people, because i don’t like dramas at all!
Why did I entered MVW competition?…I LOVE the feeling of having butterflies in the stomach, and this is what I feel in such competitions. Did you understand what I am talking about? It’s like when you are child and someone pushes you harder and harder on a swing…This is what I feel when I ‘m on stage: that’s why I’m a model and I entered the biggest contest on the grid…and ehm, yes… I am pretty emotional, could you tell that?”
WM: “What do you think will be the best thing about taking part in this contest? What do you think will be the worst thing?”
BD: “I cannot tell it yet! Anyhow I suppose that the best thing will be of course the emotion I just mentioned before and certainly the fact that I will make new friends (with some girls there is already a nice friendly relationship).
The worst thing instead will be the RL time that I will have to sacrifice to attend the competition during the year. But this is not really the worst thing: I don’t know seriously… maybe for someone this could be the best! lol what did that wise sentence say..? Life is not about the destination but is the journey .”
WM: “Some anonymous people say this competition is rigged. What are your thoughts on this?”
BD: “Well I guess this is the first things that one thinks when he couldn’t make it… “Is not my fault, but it’s someone else’s fault”. We are all human beings after all and obviously each judgment it’s by its own nature not “objective”: something can be amazing for some of us and to others just ordinary or even ugly. Therefore, a big part of this will surely involve meeting the jury’s taste, at least that’s my experience..
I’m not close to anyone in the jury and I made it! So I can be a witness and say “No, by my experience MVW is not rigged”. Moreover, now I see the difference between what I did this month and what I did before (I did the audition 3 times). There’s always an improvement!”
WM: “What qualities do you have that make you the perfect MISS VIRTUAL WORLD?”
BD: “Oh that’s difficult! I don’t like to describe the best part of myself… I’m a humble person so.. this is a very though question for me… well, I’m diligent, available, but mostly I’ve got perseverance.”
WM: “What type of personality should never be chosen to win MISS VIRTUAL WORLD?”
BD: “Probably the diva’s type, or also too insecure type but really.. who am I to judge the personality of someone else, we are all human beings and we have a bright side and a dark side, we are a complex mix of emotions, thoughts and cultural heritages, ours history and experiences made up what we are and definitely I don’t like to judge… So I guess any personality is cool to me!”
WM: “What do you hope to gain from your experience in MVW 2013?”
BD: “Lindens!!! Haha not at all!!! just kidding, it doesn’t exist such a thing as a rich model in SL well for sure I will gain much fun styling, to compete is always fun to me, I never get hard feeling to anyone which is the most important thing I guess here as in real life more than anywhere else.
I will improve my English too because of such a writing (as you see it’s not the best ever^^) hopefully I’ll have lots of new friends and also hope to reach my goal…. I have an ambitious one but I also think that is better to have a big goal than a small one, because the effort you’ll do to get a very big goal will bring you certainly to a higher level, even if you don’t reach it, than the level that you get by reaching a small goal.”
WM: “How would winning this title change you?”
BD: “As a person? not sure… I will tell you later my blog surely will be busier (lol)”
