"Hello, my name is Melanie and I am a proud native of Luxembourg. I am currently dividing my time between the charming country of my birth and the vibrant city of Miami Beach. 

I have a passion for yoga, fitness and exploring new cultures through travel. I am a joyful and ambitious individual, who is always ready for new challenges. Whether it's in my personal or professional life, I am constantly seeking out opportunities to learn, grow and make a positive impact in the world.

What do you expect from the Miss Europe Continental? 

Beauty contests have been criticized for objectifying women and promoting unrealistic beauty standards, I would like to change this received idea, nobody is perfect, I am not perfect and yet I am here to participate in the contest.

Beauty is often associated with perfection, but in reality, it's diversity and imperfections that make people unique and interesting. “Flaws” add personality and depth to a person, and it's important to remember that beauty is a subjective concept. 

By using a beauty contest to show that one can be oneself and be loved for it, we can inspire others to accept their own diversity and to accept themselves as they are. 

It's important to promote a positive image of beauty and self-acceptance, so that everyone feels valued and accepted.

What advice would you give to other candidates? 

My advice to other candidates would be to focus on self-acceptance, self-love, and being true to oneself. Embrace your unique qualities and talents, and enjoying the journey. Remember that everyone is special in their own way.

Tell us about your future projects.

I expect to launch my online business this year, I am happy to start my own company and learn about myself in a competitive environment.I am determined to do well and excited for what's ahead.

Additionally, I have made the commitment to deepen my understanding and practice of yoga by obtaining my teacher training certification and facial yoga certification. 

This is a passion that I hold dear and am excited to share with others. 

Alongside these pursuits, I am also looking forward to continuing my exploration of the world and all its wonders."
