“They said the normal things that haters say, nothing worth any attention.”
“I’ve got 200,000 new followers on Instagram too, which I wasn’t expecting [she has 1.2 million followers].
She continues, “I think what makes a person beautiful is to be kind, humble and most of all – positive. When you are good, it is really shown in your eyes and eyes never lie.”
She also talked about her win in the competition, saying “I was very surprised, I didn’t even know I was participating in this contest.
“It’s very exciting and flattering. I don’t know why they chose me, I think beauty is so individual and all women are beautiful.”
