Miss Earth Austria 2017

DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD GROWING YEARS (8-13 YEARS OLD)
I have grown up in Linz, the capital of Upper Austria. I have grown up in a harmonious and affectionate family with two siblings. My older brother is called Kevin, my younger sister Jasmin. The relation to my brother and sister was always good and narrow. Because of the fact that my mother is from Brazil, I grew up bilingual with the languages German and Portuguese. My childhood was stamped by two cultures and I am very grateful for the childhood my parents gave to me. As a child I was very curious and had various interest. My parents have given me the chance to learn many sports and to try out many hobbies. At the age of four I started to practice ballet. Two years later I decided to try out something more professional and started with ballroom dances and Latin-American dances. I was always enthusiastically from this kind of dance, from Viennese waltz to Samba, that’s why I practiced it for nearly ten years. Music combined with dancing became my passion and because of that I early decided to play music for my own. I learned how to play flute and piano. Beside the music, I carried out skiing and ice skating. Since I was six years old my father always took me to go skiing in the picturesque mountains of Austria. I still love to go skiing in the winter time and to spend my time in the mountains as well as to go swimming in the beautiful lakes in summer. In my childhood I carried out many sports like karate, swimming, horse riding as well as tennis. After I visited a catholic private school in Linz, I became interested in painting and in taking photographs. My family and I travelled a lot to various countries, especially to Brazil and Italy. I spend one month each year in Brazil to visit my family and to know my roots better. We also travelled very often to different places in Austria to see the variety and beauty of my country. I am very proud that I grew up in such a beautiful and lovely country like Austria.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
My family is unique because we are stamped by two quite different worlds. On one side I have grown up with the traditions of Austria. To wear the famous “Dirndl” at traditional parties, to go skiing together in winter and to be always punctual and organised. On the other side the joy of life and the love to dance and to be warm-hearted to other people made my family special.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
The most unusual thing I have ever done was to take part in the Miss Upper Austria competition. For me it is still unusual and special to participate at the Miss Earth competition and I am very excited what will expect me and how long this journey will go.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF THE COUNTRY YOU ARE REPRESENTING?
Austria is a unique, varied and secure country. I am proud that I grew up next to the most beautiful mountains and picturesque lakes. We live in security and tolerance and we celebrate and respect the traditions that we have since many years. The people in Austria are very friendly and sociably and that makes me very proud of my country.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
Well, when I was a little girl with 5 years I was often asked by many people: “Bianca, what do you want to become when you are older?” My answer was: “A princess like Cinderella.” When I gave this answer the adults around me started to laugh. At this time I loved to play princess with friends and I loved to wear gowns at home. My mum told me that I always wanted to sleep in my blue princess gown but I was not allowed. So I put on my pyjama and the next morning, when my mum woke me up for kindergarten, I laid happy in my bed wearing a blue princess gown. Years later, when I was about 13 years old I get bullied and teased by my class mates for no reason. It was a hard time for me because as a victim of mobbing you have to struggle with many unlovely things. The good thing was that I always got the force from my family. My mum always said: “Never forget how worthy you are.”

Now, 6 years later I decided to try my luck at a beauty pageant and thankfully here I am: Miss Earth Austria. My mother calls me sometimes “Cinderella” because even if I had to struggle with hard times I nevertheless became who I am today.
