An exclusive and precise interview session of Daily Premiere with Christina Mikkelsen;
HOW HARD WAS YOUR JOURNEY TO BECOME MISS UNIVERSE?
We had the official casting for Miss Universe Denmark in the beginning of February. So many girls had applied, but only 17 girls were chosen. Afterward we had a lot of rehearsals, where we practiced dance, catwalk, interview and so much more. Sometimes the rehearsals were rough, practicing 8 hours of dance in high heels, and then meeting 8 in the morning the day after. But at the same time, it gave all of us girls the opportunity to get to know each other. At times like this, you can meet really good friends. We also had prelims, which means we had an interview with most of the judges, and also a photo shoot. In this way, they could meet us before the big finale and get and get to know us. The hardest thing about participating in a beauty competition is; there is no such thing as a bad day. You always have to be at your best, even when you’re exhausted. Sometimes it was a little tough, but it was defiantly worth it when I was standing on stage having the tiara put on my head.
WHO INSPIRED YOU?
I have always been into the whole pageant world, and I have always admired the women in the competition. I thought they looked strong and amazingly beautiful when they were standing on stage. One lady, who really inspired me to take the chance and participate myself, was Aino Korva, Miss Universe Denmark 1963. She is the only Dane who has placed in top 5 a Miss Universe. With her help and guidance, maybe I can do the same or even better.
DID YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY SUPPORT YOU?
My friends and family supported from the beginning till the end. I couldn’t have done it without them. My family are, and will always be my greatest supporters.

A struggle is as hard as you make it. Of course, it was tough at times, but I choose to do this myself, and only I can reach my goals. I, therefore, do not think, the struggle was too hard.
WHAT SHOULD EVERY WOMAN TRY AT LEAST ONCE IN LIFE?
To be confident in doing exactly what they want to do. In today’s society it can sometimes be difficult to go your own way, and easier to follow the float. All women have to remember to be confident in their own skin. If you don’t love yourself, why should everybody else?

I feel a great satisfaction when I feel like I’m getting something out of my life. When I reach one of my goals or made it out of my comfort zone.

I don’t have twitter.
WHAT IS ON YOUR PERENNIAL TO-DO-LIST?
My to-do-list in so long, I can’t even put it on paper. I want to go skydiving, bungee jumping, have my own successful business. Make enough money, so I don’t have to worry about my future. Travel the world. Get married, and have children. Make a difference in other people’s life. Try to make a difference in the world.
