Miss Universe 2005
The original Miss Universe competition began as a bathing beauty type
of contest in Long Beach, California. A company called Catalina Swimwear
originally sponsored the contest 50 years ago.
Since then, women from all
over the world have been vying for the title of Miss Universe. A part of
the requirements for Miss Universe is that the contestants are goal oriented,
aware of the world around them, and intelligent. The Miss Universe 2005
competition was held in Bangkok, Thailand. The contest took place on May
30th, with 23-year-old Natalie Glebova of Toronto, Canada crowned as the
winner this year. It was a landmark moment for Natalie. Eleven years ago,
her family moved to Canada from Russia with very little but one container
filled with all of their belongings.
The Miss Universe 2005 event was not unlike the events of its previous
years; the winner must show dedication to some kind of important cause,
as well as some important achievements. The winner this year showed her
endless dedication for those suffering from the HIV and AIDS viruses. She
has been a public speaker and an avid fundraiser looking to raise research
money for this important cause. Miss Universe 2005 will spend the remainder
of the year traveling all over the world meeting and speaking with those
involved in the efforts to raise AIDS awareness. Before being crowned Miss
Universe 2005, Natalie was a motivational speaker who had received her
degree in communications and public relations, making her an excellent
candidate for the coveted title.
Miss Universe 2005 received a large number of wonderful prizes, including
a custom tiara made of real diamonds and pearls, valued at $250,000. In
addition, she received a yearlong salary; many wardrobe and hair care prizes,
as well as scholarships and a modeling portfolio. Miss Universe 2005 will
surely be a real role model for women all over the world, and her contributions
will certainly be noticed and appreciated throughout the world.
