did you decide to compete in the Miss Belgium pageant?
of my school wanted me to participate in the Miss Bruxelles contest. I won Miss
Bruxelles and because of that I was automatically candidate for Miss Belgium.
What was going through your head when you were announced
as the new Miss Belgium?
another girl (to win), because she was an ex James Bond girl. She was taller than me and really pretty. I was very surprised.
I couldn’t believe it.
What would be your most memorable moment at Miss
are many magical moments;
first contact with the committee and the other girls.
real friendship with some girls and the conversations we had together.

Majors invited me to the restaurant (I didn’t go) and sent he me flowers!
contact I had with people in the street. They recognized me! I was flattered!
What would be
your first thought when you were called as the 4th runner up at Miss Universe?
I was not thinking anymore! I didn’t expect to be in the top five. What a honor
found (at last!) my mother in the audience!
