I asked one of our European contenders to introduce himself first, so here goes:
“My name is Alexander Portnoff. I’m 25 years old but will be turning 26 on the 21st of November. I’m an athletic, enthusiastic and charismatic person who is an elite gymnast since the age of 9. I have done so many gymnastic competitions all around Sweden but stopped due to knee injury. Since I was young, I dreamt of becoming a Model and an Actor someday. I really work hard, do fitness and have a positive outlook in life to reach my dreams. I have studied Hotel and Restaurant Management in Stockholm and work as a fitness instructor and swimming teacher in “Fittjabadet” a fitness and aqua center. I have done a month training with certificates in Las Vegas, USA as a bartender and barista. It was an amazing expierience of my life. Since modeling has been my dream, I started to compete in Mister Universe Sweden 2016 in which I got the title Mister Personality Sweden 2016. Now that I have been selected to compete in the Mister Tourism World 2016 in the Philippines representing my beloved country, it is a dream come true. I’m looking forward for my success in everything I do because its my passion and I always believe myself. Join me on my journey in this competition because this is just the beginning of my life adventures. Yours truly, Mister Tourism World Sweden 2016 Alexander Portnoff saying love, Peace and harmony to everyone” 🙂
I have started chatting with Alexander the past couple of days, and he could really live up to the special award he got during Mister Universe Sweden 2016. He’s got loads of personality. Let’s see if he can continue to sustain the momentum once the real competition starts in Manila and Vigan from December 3-10, 2016. His National Director Frederick Lobaton is optimistic about his chances.
Good luck, Alexander!
