Beauty Talks :: Miss Universe Cayman Islands Lindsay Japal
Lindsay Japal is being talked about by beauty observers these days. Her beauty, her poise are enough to compel even the harshest of critics to put her in their short list. Despite of that though, Lindsay has to face the fact that her country is historically weak at Miss Universe. Being on the Top 16 means she will be making history. Fortunately, Lindsay knows that and she revealed to Missosology, she is working hard to make sure she indeed makes history.
1. Who do you think is the sexiest man alive?
2. If there were no rules in your life for one day and you could be outrageous, what would you do?
I would wake up, dress as my secret alter-ego and use the opportunity to push every envelope, or take any risk I have ever not taken. That is, without doing anything morally wrong. I wouldn’t want to wake up the next morning with regret.
3. What is the most difficult thing you did to prepare for the Miss Universe pageant? Why did you do that?
Joining Crossfit. Difficult is an understatement, but it hurts so good.
4. What has been the biggest disappointment in your life? Why?
Three weeks into my first semester of university at my second choice, I found out that the acceptance to my first choice had gotten lost in the mail. Needless to say, I was very disappointed but soon realized that everything happens for a reason, even if the reason isn’t evident right away.
5. If you were given 1 million dollars how would you spend it in just one day?
If I had to spend it in one day, I would pay off any outstanding bills, buy a round trip ticket around the world, and donate the rest into a cause/s or project/s I felt passionate about.
6. What does loving a boyfriend mean to you?
I think real love means accepting a person for everything that they are and even more, for everything they’re not. It means that no matter how much they may get under your skin today, you can’t imagine them not being in your life tomorrow.
7. Any beauty secrets that you would like to share the readers of Missosology?
I think the most important beauty tip is to stay well rested and well hydrated. I also have this Clinique eye roller I keep in the fridge, for that ‘rested’ look even when you’re running on fumes.
8. Tell us about the most beautiful place in your country?
Owen’s Island right off of Little Cayman is one of the most remarkably beautiful places I’ve ever seen. It is a tiny land mass with lush greenery, and a sandbar that stretches out into some of the bluest water in the world. You can swim, snorkel, kayak, paddleboard or even boat across, but once you’re over there you’ll almost wish you were stranded.
9. Tell us about your mantra or secret to success:
Never sweat the small stuff!
10. When was the last time you cried? Why?
This morning! Chopping onions for my omelette
11. What do you like to do for fun with your friends?
Anything on the water, whether it is diving, snorkelling or just relaxing on the beach. Last weekend a bunch of my friends and I went on a banana boat, so much fun!
12. Miss Universe Organization now allows transgenders to compete in their pageant system, what’s your take on this?
We live in a world that is driven by growth and change. I embrace this change because I don’t believe in discrimination on any basis. I can understand why some have concerns, and can only say that this decision should be supported by an appropriate set of regulations to ensure that the high standards of the pageant and its competitors are not compromised.
13. What would you say to someone who thinks you’re not qualified or pretty enough to represent your country in Miss Universe?
I would say that, I worked hard for the honor to represent my country, and I am working even harder to make history for my country at Miss Universe. I hope, in seeing my drive and dedication, their opinion may change. If not? Oh well! You have to pick your battles.
14. What qualities do you feel you have that would make you a great Miss Universe?
Mostly that I am a genuine and down to earth woman, with an ease and grace that allows me to face any situation.
15. Please send your special message to all your Missosology fans.
(The fact that I even have “fans” blows my mind.) Love you all, more than you know – and thank you immensely for every bit of support.
