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 Netherlands 2013, Linnda Scofield…
WM: “Please introduce yourself and tell us about your personality and tell us why you entered MVW 2013.”
LS: “Hi to all of you! My name is Linnda Scofield, I will represent the Netherlands this year. You can call me a bit of a dino in the second life modeling industry since I began my modeling career in sl in november 2007. I think my first audition for Miss Virtual World was back in 2009 (omg now I sound really old haha). This shows you don’t ever give up what your goal is. I started my modeling career because of my love and passion for fashion. Fashion at Sl is something very big and we deal with it everyday. It is a good way to express my self, my personality and my feeling of the day.
When I need to describe my personality, I’m a person that is positive, can go really crazy, I love to laugh but the other side of me is that I am down to earth, no-nonsense, dare to speak up and take my responsibilities very serious. My mind is constantly thinking of new things to do so everything stays a challenge. Being selected as a candidate for the Miss Virtual World Pageant feels like a crown on my work, it has been a goal or better name it a dream I wanted to fulfill.”
WM: “What do you think will be the best thing about taking part in this contest? What do you think will be the worst?”
LS: “The main thing is that being a candidate is already a huge accomplishment for myself. It will be a great experience. I am looking forward for all the different styling challenges and see what all that creativity will bring me. I can go crazy with the styling challenges, it will give so much adrenaline. I think my friends are laughing while they read this because yes even I can complain and drive there im crazy.
Beside challenging my self it will be will be fun with all the other candidates and see their cultures. It will be fun and we will ride this rollercoaster together. I hope me and all other contestants can enjoy their journey during this contest. We all know that like in any contest there will be bitterness,gossips and rumors, we just may not let it affect us.”
WM: “Some anonymous people say this competition is rigged. What are your thoughts on this?”
LS: “I have said this before, there will always be bad comment or negativity domination. People will always complain like during most competitions and contests. People don’t realize they are bringing people down with their comments. They need to realize every one of us contestants has worked hard for this and put their energy in it. I have given my self not 100 but 200%. I can say I am proud of my self. I believe in what I do and know where I stand for. No matter what we say it never will be the right thing.”
WM: “What qualities do you have that make you the perfect MISS VIRTUAL WORLD?”
LS: “Me the perfect miss? Nobody is perfect or the world would be boring. You can work for perfection but even then is up to the standards and values we all have if we can make things perfect. I am a person that likes to reach others,inspire people and be an example for them, show that people need to achieve their dreams. A good sense of fashion will be a priority since we are joining a beauty competition. Take it all serious and show respect. It is good taking risks and dare to be different. One of my quality’s is (and you can say it can be positive or negative) I do not mince words and know where I stand for. The other side is that even when I am in the sl fashion industry for years I am still open for feedback, and accepting it, you can always learn. Because of these skills, I think I am the right candidate for this competition and that I can win.”
WM: “What type of personality should never be chosen to win MISS VIRTUAL WORLD?”
LS: “Miss Virtual World isn’t a personality contest it is about the way you represent your country, the Miss Virtual World organization and what you stand for.
There are no bad personalities who participate in this event. The finalists are chosen for their charisma, determination, dedication and love for fashion. The only bad personality in my opinion is when people disrespect others, are fake and spread lies and rumors for personal gain.”
I always say that Beauty is in your soul even when you’re an avatar. It is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes. It’s beauty that captures your attention; personality which captures your heart.
WM: “What do you hope to gain from your experience in MVW 2013?”
LS: “There’s a lot to gain from being part of Miss Virtual World. Miss Virtual World will be a good way to challenging myself, improve and acquire more knowledge. We will learn so much from each other. It will be such amazing adventure and journey. Being part of MVW definitely is a great opportunity to get to know people from all the different counties and learn about their ethnic backgrounds, because each country or world area has different values.”
WM: “How would winning this title change you?”
LS: “Winning wont change me as a person, I am who I am. And when I do change there will be people who will knock me down and kick my cute little butt. I will stay realistic. Of course winning will change my Second life in many different ways but not the person that is behind my avatar. Each day when I look in the mirror, I know I need to stuck down to the ground with both legs. This way I can keep being honest to myself, and face my self.”
