Barbara Filipović is Miss Croatia in the 65th Miss Universe. She is a 19 year old student of Veterinary Medicine from Zagreb. And she is definitely living a very active lifestyle with interests that go from horse riding to running to cooking to skiing and traveling. As the winner of Miss Universe Hrvatske, part of her prize package is a scholarship at the Zagreb School of Economics and Management. Whether she will give up on her original course to shift to the latter is something that she is reserving until after she completes her national reign.
In an interview she gave to tkop.org, Barbara shared “this is the first time that I am a part of this glamorous world and all the challenges I had to overcome were the ones I put in front of myself. Those really are the biggest and hardest challenges one has to deal with, but once you do it, only the sky is the limit for your success.”
“My inspirations are strong women who embrace each other instead of putting each other down. I always looked up to women that are confident, happy with who they are and happy to help others feel good about themselves“.
Barbara may be young, but she is definitely not the naive type. She knows what she has gotten herself into, and is committed to do her best to at least become the first Croatian to advance to the Top 15 of a Miss Universe contest.
Will she be one of the lucky ladies to come close on January 30?
Share your vibe about Barbara, dear readers.
