Miss Kazakhstan-2013 Aidai Issayeva has shared her impression about the participation in the world’s most prestigious beauty pageant Miss Universe-2014 that was held in Florida, the United States on January 25, Tengrinews reports.
The Kazakh beauty got back home a little bit disappointed, because she did not become one of the 15 finalists.
Aidai invested a lot of time, efforts and money in the preparation to the contest. She bought the tickets to the US at her own expense. She also bought an evening gown and a national costume from the designers that cost considerable money.
Many foreign forums were making predictions that she would enter Top 5.
Speaking about the contest, Aidai marked the high level of organization. “We began to prepare starting from the very first day. There were photo shoots, various events organized by sponsors and then later rehearsals. We slept for 3-4 hours a day, the program was intense. As typical as it may sound, but all the girls were very friendly. I became fiends with all of them and I became especially good friends with Miss Russia Yuliya Alipova, with whom I shared a hotel room,” Aidai said.
According to the rules of Miss Universe, a mentor is assigned to every girl for all days of the pageant. They usually supervise girls, their schedules to make sure they are not late for the event. They often accompany them and make notes on the girls behavior for the organizers. Aidai Issayeva got one of the best reports there. “I am a kind of person who never has conflicts with others. I always try to answer with a smile. I managed to be on good terms with every participant. There were so beautiful girls. It is very unfortunate many of them did not make into Top-15,” Aidai shared her impression.
Aidai Issayeva was born in Shymkent in Kazakhstan's south. She is a graduate of Almaty-based Kazakh National Medical University named after Sanzhar Asfendiyarov.
After participation in one of the top beauty contests, Aidai decided to finish her modeling career and devote more time to her profession. The girl works as the family physician in a hospital in Almaty. Now she plans to open her own clinic, as well as engage in charity.
After a tough competition, the judges selected Paulina Vega as Miss Universe-2014. Vega got the highest possible score of 9.9 in every task at the Miss Universe contest. She received a crown from the reigning Miss Universe-2013 Venezuelan Gabriela Isler.
