TIB - Who is Rozalia Mancewicz? Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Rozalia I am 23 year old Polish girl who’s life have changed in December, when I won the Miss Polonia title. I come from the city called Bialystok but I was raised in Australia. I have studied English Philology at the University of Bialystok. In my spare time I love to draw the nature and bake cakes. Lately I have discovered how much fun hula hop brings to my life.
TIB - Tell us something that will make us remember you.
Rozalia I spend a lot of time with animals like lamas, alpacas, horses and sheep… and I like it J My parents own a restaurant and mini zoo where I often help.
TIB - Can you tell us 3 things that you think is sooo typical Poland.
Rozalia In general Polish people love to complain about everything from weather to politics. But on the other hand polish hospitality is known all around the world. The third thing is that Polish people are sooooo passionate about sports especially ski jumping and football.
TIB - What do you think? Can Poland win Miss Universe this year?
Rozalia Of course! Just look at me (laughing). Before none of the contestants from Poland have won this title so I’ll do my best to change this pattern. I have already started preparations. I watch previous pageants paying particular attention to previous winners. All the other girls are stunning but I feel the support from my family and friends and I’ll do my best not to disappoint people who believe in me.
TIB - Would you give up your title as Miss Poland Universe 2011 for 10 Million US-Dollars? Why?
Rozalia I wouldn’t give up my title. I believe that there are many things in life more important than money. Money can’t buy everything and one of those things is my title. Being a Miss Polonia I got a chance to travel, meet new people and gain new experiences and that is priceless to me.
TIB - What is the most important lesson a person should learn in life?
Rozalia The most important lesson is that we shouldn’t be selfish and care only about ourselves. We always have to remember about those less fortunate and do everything in our power to help them. Miss Polonia title gives me this chance to help on a larger scale.
TIB - Which word do you not like to hear at all? Why?
Rozalia I do not like to hear negative comments, especially when I know I’ve made a mistake. But on the other hand learning your lesson is the only way to grow as a person.
TIB - What song will put a lump in your throat every time you hear it?
Rozalia I can think of many songs but “Shining Star “ by Get Far reminds me of my best holiday ever when I visited Spain with my friend.
TIB - When have you been very proud of yourself in your life?
Rozalia The proudest moment in my life was when I won Miss Polonia title. It makes me so proud because I was not expecting it. I am so glad that I have represented my region - Podlasie in the best possible way.
TIB - If I came to your home and looked in refrigerator, what would I find?
Rozalia I care about healthy and balanced diet so I mostly have healthy food in my fridge. I changed my lifestyle and I take care of my body so I eat lots of vegetables, fruits and I drink 2 liters of water every day. But I also have hidden some ice cream so when I have those bad days I can always comfort myself.
TIB - If I gave you an elephant where would you hide it?
Rozalia Why would I ever want to hide an elephant J It is such a cute and amazing animal so I would take it for a walk.
TIB - Before you meet your prince charming, you have to kiss a lot of frogs. Your comments?
Rozalia Looking at my parents, I can say that sometimes when you are really lucky you don’t have to kiss any frogs at all. They are a great example of a perfect love. And if you meet this right person you just know it from the start. You feel this chemistry so you don’t have to kiss any of frogs.
TIB - What is your special message to your fans, and to all people around the world?
Rozalia Please trust in yourself and never give up your dreams, because they can easily come true! Do not forget about people who need our help because they are around us all the time. And the most important - never stop smiling:)
