We are so proud to announce that we got the chance to interview Maren Tschinkel, an angel face model that represented Germany in Miss Earth 2018 pageant that was held on November 3rd in Pasay, Philippines.
She is an Economics student that started modeling after finishing high school. Grace, elegance, poise, are the words that define her, in addition, she has a catwalk that would conquer any expert’s eye.
Blue and White are the colors of her home town Ravensburg, a place rich in history, and with records on commerce since the Middle Ages.
Let’s know more about Maren…
How were you in childhood?
I grew up as an only child. I was always very sporty and did gymnastics professional.
What did you dream of being when you grow up?
I always wanted to become a professional model. My biggest dream was to win the miss Germany and I made my dream come true!
What motivated you to participate in contests?
I wanted to show the world that I am more than just a model because being a miss takes a lot more. You need to prove to be intelligent and educated not only beautiful.
What has been the most difficult to learn in the pre-contest period?
For me, it was how to walk because there is a difference between a catwalk and a pageant walk. I used to only know how to walk at fashion shows, which is a very straight walk without showing any emotions. A pageant walk is full of emotions and bringing a positive message during your walk.
What have you enjoyed the most about pageantry so far?
It is all about bringing a message to the world.
What are your hobbies?
I do a lot of sports like fitness. In the summer I love to surf and in the winter I love to go skiing.
Mention something curious that few people know about you.
I scored the highest score in math at my university.
Which lesson has life given you through pageantry?
Always shine from inside and outside
We know you have Instagram, do you have other social media accounts, for example Tiktok?
No, I don’t use them.
For those that need more ideas about what to do during the lockdown, what could you recommend them?
Use the time-wise for those things we never find time.
We always complain that we don’t have enough time to do things but now you can use this time to speak to your loved ones through the phone. Also focus on yourself, on your life and future. Write down what are your next steps and where do you want to be in the future.
Which advice could you give to those girls that would like to get into pageantry and modeling?
It is a hard business but don’t let your dreams get pushed down. Try to get help from someone who is already big in that business and then just apply by yourself and give all your energy in it. Show the world how much you can shine!
Thank you very much to Maren Tschinkel for this lovely interview.
