Bianca Black – Miss Universe Australia 2020 Finalist Interview

Bianca Black - Miss Universe Australia 2020 Finalist Interview

Today we are talking with Bianca Black from QLD on of the twenty-eight. Talented and inspiring women from all walks of life who are vying for the title of Miss Universe Australia 2020.

In what has certainly been an unpredictable and unprecedented year of ups and downs we’re thrilled to bring you our ninth year of Miss Universe Australia finalist interviews.

So Bianca, why don’t you tell us about yourself?
My name is Bianca Black, I’m 23 years old, and I was born and raised on the Gold Coast, Queensland. I work as a model between Brisbane/Gold Coast. You will find me at the beach, with my dogs, working out, doing fun & new activities or with my best friends. I love trying new things and surrounding myself with nothing but positive/fun energy.

The Miss Universe Australia program has been on hold since earlier in the year and now making its way towards a virtual final to be held on October 28, What motivated you to enter the Miss Universe Australia Program? 
I have always wanted to compete in Miss Universe Australia, but what really motivated me goes way back to when I was about 11/12 years old meeting Jennifer Hawkins for the first time. She was someone who I looked up to, not for how stunning she was but her aura. I hope I can motivate at least one young girl in the same way.

This year has been like no other, how have you been coping so far and what’s been the biggest challenge and positive that has come out of it all? 
This year has definitely been one crazy year, for everyone around the world. The biggest challenge has been staying positive and realising that it is completely out of my hands, and to just focus on what I can control. The positive of all of this is I have grown so much closer to my family and friends, all of my relationships feel a lot stronger and the relationship with myself, I feel I have grown up so much this year!

With everyone bringing such an individual flair to the competition, what do you think is something that will set you apart from the other contestants? 
There are so many amazing women in this competition… I think something that sets me apart is I understand that Miss Universe isn’t all about the glitz and glamour, it’s about staying real and relatable and knowing exactly what you want to achieve with this amazing platform.

The winner of Miss Universe Australia 2020 will also receive the prestigious Minespec Parts grant worth $20,000 to spend on your education or business startup, what would you do if you received this grant? And would you say your answer has changed now during the current COVID climate?
If I were to become Miss Universe Australia 2020, I would put the $20,000 grant towards my own business and acting school. Throughout COVID, I have had different ideas that have come and gone, but my main focus for this grant has remained the same.

First thing you will do when this pandemic ends? 
First thing I will do when this pandemic ends is TRAVEL! Haha I think this will be a common answer for everyone.

Place you will hope to travel to next? 
My best friends and I have been talking about our group going to Bali when this all ends, but I can’t wait to be back in Europe. I’m hoping for a Euro Summer 2021.

Have you taken up a new hobby, skill or learnt a new dish during lockdown? 
My best friends and I have been talking about our group going to Bali when this all ends, but I can’t wait to be back in Europe. I’m hoping for a Euro Summer 2021.
