A Clondalkin-based mum is set to compete in two prestigious international beauty pageants in the coming months.
Marina Siniciene has lived in Clondalkin in Dublin for the last year and a half with her young daughter, and she previously lived in Tallaght for 15 years.
This year Marina is taking part in two beauty pageants at the same time, Miss Elegance of the World Ireland 2021 and Mrs Ireland Global International 2021 which is going to take place in Dubai in August.
Speaking to the Dublin Gazette, Marina said: “Currently I am one of the top five finalists in Miss Elegance of the World Ireland 2021 and if I will win will go to Florida World Competition. Previously I have been a finalist in Miss Bikini Ireland, Top Model Ireland and second runner up and Directors Choice in Miss Emerald Isle 2020.”
Marina said she is very excited about the upcoming competitions and is looking forward to meeting the judges and her fellow participants.
“I like the most about the pageants that at every event I can meet new people, make friends, it gives me feeling of achievement and fulfilment. It creates a lifetime of memories and widening my social horizon and understanding of people, it also boosts self-esteem,” said Marina.
Marina also enjoys helping people and animals, and she is currently raising money for charities Dog Trust Ireland and Cancer Research Ireland.
