The reign of Mireia Lalaguna as Miss World 2015 has a lot of expectations. The title after all is more of a work than showbiz and it has to be taken seriously. If her predecessors would serve as a yardstick, it seems Mireia will have a daunting task. What is even interesting is that Mireia is the first-ever Spanish beauty to win as Miss World. On what will be expected from her seems to be largely unknown, at least in her native Spain.
Mireia knew from the start that being a Miss World winner involves lots of charity work and appearances on various glitzy national pageants. However, Mireia never expected that she will win and had been struggling with shyness and low self-esteem ever since she started entering beauty pageants. So how was she able to manage huge expectations when she was suddenly pushed into the limelight?
First and foremost, Mireia participated in the right pageant. Miss World is known to select women who are modest even bordering to being shy. Think about the personalities of Alexandria Mills or Megan Young. Second, Mireia had been transformed through personality development techniques of Veronica Sosa, a Spanish coach. The confidence of Mireia was built up starting from her Miss World Spain days which involves the so-called “mirror technique” of Veronica Sosa. Obviously, the method did work.
From being a teen-age girl who was conscious of her looks, Mireia managed to become a confident woman who exuded a very queenly aura when she appeared at the Miss Indonesia finals as well as during the Miss Mundo Puerto Rico finals and when she sat as one of the judges during the Femina Miss India contest. She managed to express with unmistakable confidence the purpose of Miss World during her charity works in Kenya, the United States and Russia.
The motivational techniques of Veronica Sosa enabled Mireia Lalaguna to manage expectations with finesse and elegance. Miss World was absolutely right in choosing Mireia as Miss World 2015. She has demonstrated clearly that while she wants to enjoy the fame, glitz, glamor and honor of being the first Miss World from Spain, she also understood perfectly that title entails heavy responsibilities.
