Beauty queens face an entirely different world from actors and models though they all receive that similar glory for the limelight. For one, each candidate represents their nation – the pride and joy of their country. Second, the mind-shaking pressure they carry on their lovely shoulders in getting that crown – beating hundreds of equally competitive women from around the world – never losing an ounce of confidence and composure. Lastly, the intellectual capacity you must have to get on the top. Something the judges never overlook.
Now, we know how crazy these beauty pageants can get, we’ll set that aside for a moment and take a look at what these lovely ladies do for a living before taking up the fight for the crown. (List may not necessarily be in correct order.)

9. Miss Earth Brazil 2010: Luisa de Almeida Lopes
“I learned that we are all equal before God and that respect is a necessary ingredient for us to get along and live together and have peace. It doesn't matter what is one's color, gender, age, culture, nationality, social status or religion. We have to agree to disagree. Having grown up with 2 siblings, I quickly learned that conflict will arise between people and if you don't learn to respect the other's rights, than you lose your own. I learned that it doesn't matter if you are rich or poor, we are all equal, we all have the same needs and therefore we all share this planet and because of that, we must care for the environment.”
