Nardos Tafesse: The Model with Big Dreams

Ethiopian News - Nardos TafesseAddis Ababa, Ethiopia, May 25, 2009 (Ezega.com) -- Nardos Tafesse is a 19 old Model from Ethiopia. This tall (1.78m),

elegant and confident model was born and grew up in Addis Ababa. She grew up with her grandparents and was very restless as a child. She says she bothered her grandparents to take her everywhere. Ezega.com reporter, Eden Habtamu, interviewed her recently and asked her about her life, interests and future plans.

Nardos has big dreams. This 12th grade student not only wants to be one of Africa’s top models, but also study Political Science and become one of leading political figures in Africa. Elaborating on her ambition to be an influential politician, Nardos said “I want to be this beautiful and prominent prime Minster, working for the betterment of our country.”

Though her upbringing did not particularly encourage her to pursue modeling and beauty contests, it gave her strength to believe in herself and to be confident. She said, before she took the modeling training in Habesha Modeling, she could not even ‘walk’. Nardos believes the training opened the door for her and enabled her to see what she has to offer.

So far, Nardos has won various crowns: Miss Virgin, Miss Millennium, Miss Coffee, and Top Model. She told us proudly that she received five crowns in the five contests she participated locally. She also traveled to Asia and the Middle East (China, Japan, Philippines and Dubai) to participate in various contests.

Nardos enjoys reading books (especially those related to politics) and writing poems. She spends her leisure time in quite places as well as swimming. She sees herself as a good listener. “I love to listen to people, rather than talking to them.”

Asked what it was like to win her first content, Nardos said “It was the Miss Virgin contest. I was really excited and proud to have received the crown and to promote the virtue of being a virgin.”

Ethiopian News - Nardos TafesseMany parents are not happy to send their children to modeling and beauty contests believing that their children will fall behind on their education and become vulnerable to bad influences. We asked Nardos if she encountered such resistance. Nardos replied, “No, my parents believed in me. They don’t interfere on my choices. They respect my decisions and selections, and they encourage me in all aspect.”

She feels bad that we, Africans, could not win in global beauty contests, although she believes that we are beautiful. “It is sad that we did not get the chance to win in big international contests. All they say “Oh you are Ethiopian, wow… beautiful! But when they sit on their chairs, they won’t open up their eyes and look into our inner and natural beauty. We are so beautiful without any makeup. We just do not get the chances that western contestants do. We don’t even have one evaluator who represents Africa.”

    When you are new to the dating scene, then reading reviews is especially useful so that you don? Dating with a scientific approach - finding "the perfect match" through online psychometric testing. Excuse me, but this doesn't have to be real ,if it is based on your bias observation [url="http://bestraftehuren.cryptom.site"][/url]

    Every office or activity has its rules which have to be followed by all. Ever heard of the saying "You are as younger as you feel" Effectively, this quote is true, particularly in terms of mature courting. A nice collection of photos to get in the mood for Spring!

    Period. Because im 'nice' they think im weird, where im from everyone love to do the whole '2-faced' game where you pretend/backstab to be friends just to further your social status [url="http://appartementhoofddorphuren.cryptom.site"]appartement hoofddorp[/url] just be sincere about the truth that you’re taking issues gradual (if that’s what you’re doing) and keep it cool (Or, “You gotta ask him” at all times works).
