  •  How to become a beauty Queen?

To be born a woman – it is the duty to be beautiful. Learn how to train your confidence, love , accept yourself and your body! And then the people surrounding you will notice your magnetism and beauty.


  • How important is for you the word “beauty”?

Beauty according to my understanding it is something pleasant and good, something that you can watch for hours and admire it. It can be a beautiful girl or painting, the landscapes, the sunset reflected in the sea.. or a kind act of the person.


  •  Tell me about your traditional gift, Why did you choose it?

My Ukrainian national gift consist on handmade beads joined together by old technology in several rows. The authors are the design studio SVITLO, which creates exlusive things in ethnic style.
The Beads are created from naturnal materials: aquamarine stone, hyaline quartz and nacre.

This kind of necklace was worn by women in Ukraine in the early 20th century and they were not only an exquisite decoration but also a protection from evil forces.

I chose these beads because I wanted it to be something beautiful, some piece of jewelry with ethnic roots. I saw these beads on the First Lady of Ukraine Marina Poroshenko and I really liked them. We thought it would be interesting to do the same for a charity auction of gifts at the Miss Universe.



  • What are your Hobbies?

I have two large dogs (Dalmatian and Doberman). In my spare time I play with them, walk, train them myself. I love to draw, go to the gym. I study English and French, I try to improve them.

Of course, the first thing I remember talking about the happiest moment of my life is the title of “Miss Ukraine Universe 2016”, I always wanted to go to the “Miss Universe” beauty contest.



  • What was your earliest childhood memory?

In my first childhood memory I’m not alone, next to me is my mother. We go together to the school year opening ceremony, in this day I became a schoolgirl. I had such a long big bouquet that I still remember how my hands were tired to carry it (Alena laughed) ..

  • If you had the opportunity to make a film, what would it be?

If I had that chance, my film would be about the diaries of a cat or philosopher dog (Alena laughs). He would be the only one has the opportunity to observe all members of the family, whenever he wants. He would be psychologist of the views, thoughts on life in the owner’s family circle. I think he would have an opinion about every member of the family and any event. With a big interest I would listen to his thoughts.


  • What are the benefits to be famous?

A lot of them.. I must admit, it feels good to be the covers of magazines, in newspapers, on television. Most importantly, to be able to your. properly dispose of , not just to sit at home. Having popularity, it is easy to engage in charity and social projects. to realize itself in different spheres, and even to be the role models, and to advertise different brands.

  • Favorite place on the planet?

There are on our planet a lot of beautiful places, I love sea, so sitting somewhere on white sands and clear blue water would be very great.


  • Who do you trust the most?

Rather to what, I think I have a very well developed sense of intuition. Very often I rely on this inner feeling, if I feel that it is not necessary something to do, then I won’t do it.

For me, ordinary women are heroes. For centuries they have children, they do household chores, take care of their husbands, at the same time they have time to be beautiful and fill the world with Love!

Interview with Jihan Dimack “Miss Universe Tanzania 2016”

Jihan Dimack will represent Tanzania at the the 65th Miss Universe pageant that will be held on 30 January 2017 at the Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines.

We are glad and proud to introduce you a favorite contestant to get Miss Universe crown later this month, she is a girl that is down-to-earth, smart, intelligent, we could fill a book with positive adjectives about her, so is better for you to know her more, and The Perfect Miss interviewed her for you…..


  • Your name is Jihan,  what does it mean and how does it describe you?

Jihan, well actually my mum named after a very famous Egyptian singer whom she admired very much! ‘Jihan’ means the universe, the world. It definitely best describes my personality as I give my all, my everything in each and every step I decide to take in life.


  • What’s your birth city?  And what’s the place that any tourist should visit there?

I was born in the heart of the Lake Region in Tanzania, known as Mwanza.
I would recommend every tourist to see the Largest Lake in Africa, Lake Victoria and witness the most beautiful massive outcrop of the granite rock known as the Bismarck Rock. The rock was named after a very famous German Chancellor in the days prior to the world war and it also has a long history from African tribes who where living there in the old time which I think would very interesting for any tourist to learn more about.


  • What motivated you to participate in beauty pageants? 

It has been a passion of mine since a child. My motivation was to make my dream a reality and to use this opportunity to stand up for what I believe in.


  • What are the obstacles that a woman faces in order to participate in beauty contests? 

Well, speaking from my point of view, the obstacle I faced before joining the pageant was mostly the ‘decision making’ part. Was I willing to risk everything and give this my best, leave my work place to others maybe studies, less time with my family , I had to reassure myself to give it my best and regardless if I win or loose I had to mentally prepare myself to accept either one of them.



  •  And what do you love about pageants? 

The experience, the risk, the challenges and the long bumpy road that always leads you to your destiny whether you win the crown or not. You learn a lot about life in general and it helps build a woman’s confidence to what true beauty really means which is YOUR HEART FROM WITH IN.


  • How do they empower women? 

YES! Pageants help empower women. The many tasks and challenges the contestants face from the beginning till the very end helps us to step out from our comfort zone which slowly builds our confidence as a person. It is also a platform for networking and getting the opportunity to meet with very inspiring legends which we look up too and could really learn from.


  • What does the Miss Universe Tanzania crown mean for you?

It meant and still means the world to me. It is that special key I have longed for so long to finally let all that I have ever wanted to do a woman in this world and leave that legacy behind as an aspiration to the world through this platform.



  • After Steve Harvey’s incident in past Miss Universe’s edition you posted in instagram this “Guess all happens for a reason”… so what would be the reason behind your victory? A reason linked to destiny?  luck?  preparation?  beauty?  or any other else? And why?

I would say ‘The Grace and Strength of God and prayers’ maybe you could say destiny. I had previously competed for another pageant in 2014 which I learned a lot from being down to raising myself back up. I did put in all I have and regardless of the many negativity that run through my mind before deciding to compete again for another pageant like Miss Universe, I said to myself ‘ risk it all, keep working hard, give it your all over again and PRAY’ that’s all I did! I am more grateful for this opportunity.


  • What would you have done if you were Miss Colombia and not Miss Philippines after Harvey’s mistake?

Well honestly speaking I would have been in shock and very hurt at that moment  but regardless as I said earlier, everything happens for a better reason it might not make sense now but it eventually will so I will hold it in smile and congratulate the winner and wish her the best!


  • If you win Miss Universe who will be the first you would call by phone and tell about your victory? 

My mother!!



  •  Your favorite Miss Universe?  and why?

The current, Miss Pia Wurtzbach. Why, it’s simple I truly admire her CONFIDENCE as a woman, determination and what matters the most is having a beautiful heart from the inside and what better way to show it to the Universe!


  • Which message would you give to those young girls that would like to follow your steps?

To the many young girls out there, I would like to advice them to firstly find the deepest reason for wanting to compete for pageant and use that very same drive until the end. You have to be sure of your decision, be truly honest with yourself! You will have so many ups and downs but keep pushing because if you just put in that little effort the results will be beyond your expectation and always remember to place GOD first in every step.



We would like to thank Maria Sarungi Tsehai the director of Miss Universe Tanzania for letting us interview Jihan, and for being such an inspiration to all of us.  Follow her in twitter, strongly recommended.


Respuesta de Natalia Comuzzi a #NiUnaMenos

Usamos este espacio para compartir las palabras de una REINA con todas las letras, de lo mejor que leí sobre el tema de la prohibición de los concursos de belleza. Una persona que se expresa de esa manera, demuestra que las reinas no somos solo una cara bonita. Recordemos que este movimiento ” Ni Una Menos” cuyo origen fue protestar en contra de la violencia hacia las mujeres, se empeñó en Mar del Plata, de bloquear la realización de este reinado nacional.

Pero, a fin de cuentas no lograron su objetivo, y el 45° Reinado Nacional del Mar se realizó con éxito este 5 de enero.


” Es cansador leer como se pretende hablar sobre un tema del cual se ignora completamente.

Pueden garantizar que la violencia de género va a terminar erradicando la elección de una Reina Nacional? NO
La violencia está instaurada en nuestra cultura, somos una SOCIEDAD violenta en diversos aspectos, y eso no va a cambiar tomando decisiones intrascendentes como la que en este artículo se pretenden.
Cuánto más van a coartar nuestras libertades? Acaso porque yo no esté de acuerdo con la manera en que una mujer decide exponerse tengo el derecho de prohibírselo? No leo más que incoherencia e hipocresía en este doble discurso feminista.

Publicamos un cartel de NI UNA MENOS, miramos Showmatch y tildamos de GATO a las mujeres que en este programa participan; y ahí tenemos a las PRINCIPALES CULPABLES de la violencia de género, nosotras mismas, que nos creemos con la capacidad y el derecho de clasificar a una mujer de tal o cual cosa por sus elecciones personales.

Cómo pretenden que los hombres crezcan respetando a las mujeres cuando nosotras no lo hacemos? Cuando hijos no hacen más que escuchar a sus madres faltándole el respeto a sus pares con palabras ofensivas por tener otro estilo de vida.

Si hay algo que cambiar, es nuestra manera de pensar, y la única manera de hacerlo es mediante la EDUCACIÓN.
Eduquen hijos e hijas independientes, con valores y principios innegociables, con empatía y amor por el prójimo; pero háganlo desde el ejemplo y no desde un discurso vacío, que allí, se encuentra el verdadero aprendizaje.

El derecho de una persona termina, cuando empieza el de la otra” y si el derecho fundamental de una persona, es el derecho a la vida, dejemos que cada mujer elija de que forma quiere vivirla, eso es LIBERTAD.

La verdadera VIOLENCIA se encuentra en la represión, y como mujer no voy a permitir que nuevamente callen nuestras voces.  Con lo cual invito a quién guste: a conocerme personalmente, informarse de cuales son las verdaderas actividades de la Reina Nacional del Mar y luego, mediante un análisis crítico y constructivo, explicarme con fundamentos razonables los motivos por los cuales se debería eliminar la elección de la Embajadora Turística de nuestra ciudad. ”

Natalia Victoria Comuzzi
44 Reina Nacional del Mar




Giuliana Chiappa es la 45° Reina Nacional del Mar

Este jueves 5 de enero,  Giuliana Chiappa fue elegida como la 45° Reina Nacional del Mar, estudiante de enfermería, y hace seis años que con orgullo integra la Guardia Nacional del Mar. Su gran anhelo siempre fue poder ser una representante digna de Mar del Plata con humildad y perseverancia, inculcando los valores de la ciudad.

Abril Montiel se llevó el título de primera embajadora, y Melisa Skinder obtuvo la nominación de segunda embajadora.

Recordemos que la 44° Reina Nacional del Mar fue Natalia Comuzzi, la cual dio el cetro a su sucesora, pero antes de terminar este texto me gustaría hacer hincapié en la valiosa contribución de ella, por lo tanto no podemos omitir este importante pronunciamiento que hizo en sus redes sociales.
