Our beautiful Miss Europe Continental Austria, Christine tells us about her, her passions and her ambitions in a gracious letter addressed to the entire audience of the contest.

 "A warm hello to all the participants, readers and the Miss Europe Continental Team. My Name is Christine Halwachs and I’m happy to represent my country Austria in the Big Final of the 10th Edition of Miss Europe which will take place in Italy. I’m a mix of 50% Algerian (mother side) and 50% Austrian (father side). I guess that describes my character very well. An independent, spirited, passionate and very down to earth person who is thankful for all these opportunities. I love to travel and to have a look over the edge. Stepping out of my comfort Zone has become an integral part of my life in recent years so here I go again.

I had my first experience in front of the camera at the age of six. I had a shooting for a photographer studio near my hometown - back then little did I know that this was the beginning of a very exciting journey. (Shootings, TV-Commercials, Fashion Week Runways, Elite Model Look Contest, Magazine publications, …)

My Mission at the Miss Europe Continental Contest? 

It’s high time for women/girls around the world to love themselves as they are. It’s time to be confident with who you are and show the world what you got. Fall in love with your imperfections because that’s what makes you unique. That’s exactly what I stand for and want to be a voice for. Don’t follow the mainstream or trends (example: fox eyes à la Bella Hadid etc) Just be you - every woman is beautiful.

In my opinion models of the 90s like Gisele Bündchen, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer were great. For me these women are natural beauties who have been able to cast a spell on people/ customers through their charisma/attitude and stand for pure elegance and femininity.

Looking forward to the Contest and to get to know some of you soon Lots of love, Christine".
