Miss Universe 2000 Lara Dutta with her mom Jennifer Dutta

I think she got a quite interesting Q&A here ...Originally posted by Lara_D
Interesting answers of our Miss Philippines to the Miss Universe questionnaire.
Name one person, other than your parents, who has had the most influence on your life. Why?
My Aunt Mercy, who is a nun with the Religious Virgin of Mary. Straight from high school she entered the convent, and although she is now very sick, she continues to serve the people and be true to her vocation. She is my source of inspiration and spiritual strength for all my endeavors.
What is the most interesting or unique thing that has ever happened to you (aside from winning your title) and/or what is the most interesting thing about you?
Many times I find myself looking at the stars. I am very fascinated with them. It gives me a great feeling of wonder just gazing at the entire galaxy on some evenings.
What is your career ambition and what are you doing or plan to do to accomplish that goal?
I wish to start a modeling agency in the future. What I have accomplished as a model and what I am into right now seem to be the right steps toward that goal. I will do my very best to accomplish that.
Are you currently a student? If yes, where? What is your area of study?
I temporarily discontinued my studies, but will re-enroll and finish college after my reign. I still have one (1) year more to go., Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications.
List any interesting or unsual jobs you may have had.
My grandmother had a small piggery in our backyard. Many times I had to help her tend and clean up the pig pens, and sometimes even stayed up late at night awaiting the birth of piglets.
Describe your childhood home and living conditions. Were you raised with a large family with lots of brothers and sisters?
My family lived very simply. My parents worked hard to make a living. When I was small, I used to climb trees and play hide and seek with my cousins. We were four children in our family.
What one word describes you best?
Jensie, oo naman...ang laki talaga ng difference ! Sa dating pa lang ehOriginally posted by JENSIE_G
I duno with you guys, but I find it super duper easy to distinguish Singaporean Chinese from those from mainland China...
CyberShiva: unbeatable naman talaga ang MW when it comes to the number of participating delegates.

cathybee: welcome back to the thread! how are you???
Miss-ion Possible for Tanushree
TIMES NEWS NETWORK[ SUNDAY, MAY 09, 2004 07:51:57 AM ]
Her bags are packed and she's ready to board an Alitalia flight to Ecuador on May 11. For Pond's Femina Miss India-Universe 2004 Tanushree Dutta, June 1 — the grand finale of the Miss Universe Contest in Ecuador — will be the biggest night of ‘em all. And is she ready!
"I've paid special attention to my workout sessions with Mickey Mehta. I'm also learning to swim." Tanushree's ‘fitness', by the way, extends to brushing up her knowledge of current affairs, learning hair and makeup training from Bharat and Doris Godambe, skin-care techniques from Jamuna Pai, plus smiledesign treatment and ‘britesmile' from Sandesh Mayekar. Besides, Tanushree has "attended dance and cultural workshops conducted by Sandip Soparrkar, been trained in diction and stage presence by Sabira Merchant and picked up tips on nutrition from VLCC."
Looking great and feeling even better, Tanushree's luggage packs the creations of Ritu Kumar, who has designed her Indian wear and national costume; Ashley Rebello, who has made a gold-andwhite evening gown, Western formals, cocktail dresses and swimwear; and Satya Paul, for Western casuals. Throw in footwear from Finesse, New Delhi , and there's a spring in her step too!
With vital stats to launch a thousand ‘oohs', Tanushree is being extremely carefully about her diet. "I haven't had a chance to celebrate after the Miss India pageant. The only time I freaked out was at the post-contest party, where I let myself go on butter chicken and desert!"
An entire nation waits with bated breath as Tanushree readies to fasten her seat-belt and take off."There are lots of expectations. I'm a human being and do feel a bit nervous, but I'll certainly give it my best shot." Atta girl!
