Get to know Shaylene Pase, Miss Megaverse USA Florida 2018 with our Beauty Talks questions
Tell us something that most people don’t know much about you. My biological father was not in my life growing up. When I was 18, I changed my last name to the man’s name that my mother married when I was very young. He continued to play the father role in my life even after their divorce.
How would you describe your country to your fellow contestants? A beautiful place with so much to see and do! And a country where you can really follow your dreams.
What makes you a power woman? I am very independent. I started working and providing for myself when I was a young teen. I’m a small town girl who moved across the country and then to the city to follow my dreams of being a successful hair and makeup artist. A year ago, I decided to quit my job, drop everything and start building my career from the ground up. I knew it would be a huge pay cut, and I knew it would be hard but I knew it would be worth it. I had a very little clientele base, little experience, and even smaller funds. But I was determined to support myself solely off my career and I am proud to say I have not only accomplished that, but I have opened more doors for myself in the industry, including modeling.
What is your greatest strength and how did it help you to become one of the competitions world finalists today? Self motivation. You must be self motivated to become your own boss, be your own business, and put yourself out there!
What is your idea of happiness and success? Being able to make a living off doing what I love. I would rather do what I love and make less, then make more and dread going to work.
What is your secret to stay healthy and beautiful? Just take care of yourself! Exercise regularly, be health conscious when it comes to food and drinks, drink a lot of water, and have a good skincare routine! NEVER fall asleep with your makeup on. And get plenty of sleep!
What should every woman try at least once in her life? Step in front of the camera! You don’t have to be a model. We are all beautiful in our own unique ways and sometimes it takes someone else’s eye for us to see it.
How do you handle stressful situations? Breathe! Just breathe. Stress can take over our thinking sometimes and cause us to think poorly. We have to realize we are all human, and all have different obstacles to face but we have to slow down, and think about how we can get ourselves out of that stressful situation.
What is the best advice you’ve been given? Follow your passion and dreams, the money will come later. I absolutely love this. I love what I do every day, and to me, that’s priceless.
If you win the crown, what message would you spread and the goals you´d have for your year of reign? Be true to yourself, be unique, learn to love yourself and you’ll be able to conquer anything. My goal is to influence and empower all walks of life to be the best them they can be. I want to show that anything is possible if you put your mind, heart and soul into it. You don’t have to be the prettiest, richest, smartest one out their to make your dreams a reality. I come from a very poor background and I lacked confidence pretty much my whole life. As I’ve grown, I’ve learned that you just have to own who you are. As long as you are being the best you, you can be, you’ll be unstoppable.
