Achievement Beyond Beauty, Interview with Caroline Rueda, Miss Multiverse Spain 2017.
Tell us something that most people don´t know much about you.
I am very interested in different cultures. One of my passions is to travel, not only to just visit a new country, I like to explore deeper and get to know culture, their meals, their traditions, art and customs. I love to learn from everyone. I consider ethnic diversity to be fantastic. Every culture is a whole new world to explore, it will never cease to amaze me.
How would you describe your country to your fellow contestants?
Spain is a gorgeous country and I feel blessed to have been born in there. Visitors can find everything; from, amazing sceneries, beaches, mountains, incredible foods, lovely people and the weather is fantastic. In fact, according to a report by the World Economic Forum, Spain is the best tourist destination in the world. I proudly invite everyone to visit my country Spain.
What makes you a power woman?
I am a fighter and independent woman. I normally set high goals in live, career and work, to achieve them has required self believe, effort and dedication. I am a very persistent person, I never give up in spite of adversity.
What is your greatest strength and how did it help you to become one of the competitions world finalists today?
My perseverance. I am a very consistent in what I do, I don´t mind the obstacles found along the way, I always look for a solution even if it takes me longer to reach my goal, I never give up because i know i will eventually get there, as is the case of this contest. I set my mind on it, and here i am ready to give everything of myself, enjoy this experience and proudly present my country Spain.
What is your idea of happiness and success?
For me, happiness and success are a spontaneous feeling. The satisfaction that we feel when we achieve our goals, at work, at home and the way we live our everyday life. The feeling of gratefulness that comes as results of our effort and work. ¨I believe every obstacle has a lesson in disguise¨ these are tests we need to pass in order to grow, learn and be better prepared for the next steps in life as we reach success.
What is your secret to stay healthy and beautiful?
Have a healthy lifestyle. By this I mean, a good diet, physical exercise, feeling satisfied at work, supportive with your family and friends, but also having a good relationship with the environment … Everything that makes you happy is responsible for your beauty, interior and outside.
What should every woman try at least once in her life?
Every woman should be free to choose the way that makes her happy. Never allow anyone to impose limits on you or say “you can´t do this” because you are a woman.
We are strong, capable, invincible … we are women.
How do you handle stressful situations?
My motto is to be patient and optimistic. I never give up and I always smile at problems, I usually smile all day, everything is much easier and less stressful if you decide to live happy and grateful.
What is the best advice you´ve been given?
Be and believe in yourself. Don’t try to do what others want you to do; instead, do what ever makes you happy. My Mother.
If you win the crown, what message would you spread and what are the goals you´d have for your year of reign?
I would say that dreams can come true, no matter how difficult the road. You have to believe in yourself, work hard, improve every day and give it your best. I would like to tell my story, everything I have worked in my life to achieve my goals, to get here, which has made me the winner of that crown. And, with this, try to encourage, inspire, empower and help all those who need it.
