At the casting day of Miss Nederland 2016, there was an announcement; all 15 semi-finalists are going to Ibiza, and there the official 12 finalists will be chosen, during the opening of a new hotel Marble Stella Maris. And after a long but exciting day, my name was called, when the 15 semi finalists were selected to go to the magic island!
The day of the semi finals we flew to Ibiza, immediately after we arrived we started rehearsing, as the opening of the hotel and the show were later that evening.
Before the show, a Dutch reporter approached me to do an interview for Dutch television. I felt honored, but I never had done an interview before. So I was clueless on what I was about to say. But in the end it went well, he was super nice he told me; if you are through, I will come back for another interview. If there wasn’t enough pressure already
The show started and we had to do three rounds; firstly introducing ourselves. Secondly, a bikini round, and thirdly, one last round, so the judges could have one more look before deciding who will to through to the finals. We did the last round and went backstage waiting until the judges had decide. Then we were called back on stage, and it was revealed, one by one the 12 finalists were announced and I was one of them! I was so happy and still am, all I can say is thank you for giving me this change of fulfilling my dreams.
You can watch the video here. It’s in Dutch, but it will give an impression of this special and unforgettable night.
