Beauty with a purpose – contestants for Miss Seychelles beauty pageant are ready to go

Beauty with a purpose – contestants for Miss Seychelles beauty pageant are ready to go ( The aim of the Seychelles beauty pageant is not only to showcase the great variety of feminine elegance and beauty, but to also showcase a great variety of intelligent young ladies who are striving to achieve their goals as future scientists, psychologists, and owning a business in the future.

This Seychelles’ annual beauty pageant is an opportunity for the winner to become an ambassador for the Seychelles islands and to use her title in social contexts and charitable purposes. The pageant also nurtures self-confidence in the contestants, as it allows them to demonstrate their talents and abilities.

The audition for the 2013 “Miss Seychelles… another world” beauty pageant was held on Wednesday, February 20, 2013. To the contestants this was the start of an exciting journey which would open doors of opportunities for them.

During the audition the contestants were judged on their physical beauty, figure, deportment, charm, poise, personality, general conversation, intelligence, as well as conduct. The 14 contestants will now take part in training and grooming sessions in preparation for the final of the beauty pageant that will take place on May 25, 2013.

To most of the young ladies, it is the first time they had the chance to be part of such a prestigious event. Already some of them are captivated by the publicity that the “Miss Seychelles… another world” contestants gained both on the national and international levels. For the “Miss Seychelles… another world” contestants, the pageant is not solely a means to showcase elegance and beauty, but it is a contest in which they will be able to display their personalities positively.

The 14 contestants have started a series of training programs in preparation for the Grand Finals on May 25, 2013. The training sessions will end 2 weeks prior to the final rehearsals. With the support of the Seychelles Tourism Board and close collaborators of the pageant, the 14 contestants have so far undergone general grooming such as hair, makeup, nails, and posture.

The Eco-Friendly Marathon showcased the “Miss Seychelles…another world” contestants’ first involvement in the Seychelles Tourism Board calendar of events. Furthermore, for the next three months the contestants will build a strong team spirit and will undergo intensive weekly training programs to brush up on their “public speaking techniques, general knowledge on the Seychelles culture and economy, phone and table etiquette, conversation in French, and performance skills on camera.” They will also be having “choreography” training sessions as part of their preparation. The contestants will also have several social outings such as a trip to Praslin and Curieuse island. On Praslin they will have photo shoot sessions at the Vallee de Mai, and a nature trip to Curieuse island.

The contestants are going through a program of intensive training that will be required of them as future “Miss Seychelles… another world” contestants. As they gradually enter into the sixth week of their training sessions, the momentum will gradually build up for the finals. All these tailored training sessions have been planned by the Seychelles Tourism Board to prepare the contestants not solely for the “Miss Seychelles…another world” 2013 beauty pageant, but form part of the Miss World pageant to be held in Indonesia on September 28, 2013.

While the training sessions are quite demanding, the benefits that will be reaped at the end of this beauty pageant will not only be beneficial to the crowned princess, but to the 13 contestants as well. Although the 13 contestants will not make it on the international stage, they should not be disconcerted, instead they should see themselves as winners and looking forward to a brighter future.

The contestant who will be crowned “Miss Seychelles…another world” 2013 from the 14 contestants will also be an Ambassador for the Seychelles islands during her reign. Among other events that our beauty queen will actively be involved in are: the Carnaval International de Victoria, Kreol Festival, and the Seychelles Ball, as well as other activities, such as attending tourism trade fairs, an opportunity for her to learn more of the travel industry.

“Miss Seychelles… another world” is an event that not only celebrates beauty and glamour, but it represents the people of Seychelles, their culture, and the melting pot of its many ethnic groups.
