Q. Many congratulations to you on getting selected to represent the United States at the upcoming edition of Miss Supermodel Worldwide. How do you feel about it?
Nancy Moran: Thank you so much. To be begin with, it is such an honor to be able to represent my country, the United States at the upcoming edition of Miss Supermodel Worldwide, but more than anything I feel very grateful for everything. It is such a blessing to have this opportunity and I thank god as well as everyone who has supported me through my journey. I will continue to prepare and work hard to deliver my best.
Q. Tell us something about your hobbies and areas of interest.
Nancy Moran: I am the type of person that loves to do a little bit of everything. I love being outdoors, doing activities such as hiking, fishing, camping, biking etc. I also enjoy maintaining an active healthy lifestyle, whether it is by cooking delicious and balanced meals or by working out on a daily basis. But more importantly, I am a mental health advocate which is why I am currently studying psychology at the Washington State University.
Q. Describe yourself in three words.
Nancy Moran: Honest, intelligent, and outgoing.
Q. In your opinion, what is the best way to deal with criticism?
Nancy Moran: Great question, before I get into answering it, I would like to point out the fact that there is a major difference between constructive criticism and destructive criticism. With that being said, there is always room for improvement no matter how good you are at something. For those reasons, I believe constructive criticism is always helpful because it gives you the opportunity to see things from a different perspective, which will in return, allow you to improve in some way or another. However, when it comes to negative criticism, I think it is best to either use it as motivation to see yourself succeed or to just simply ignore it. I understand that “ignoring” hate is much harder than it sounds but I always like to recommend individuals who are receiving hate to think about what is causing this person to express such negativity. Unfortunately, most of the time, it will be because they have trouble coping with their own insecurities.
Q. When you look back in time, what do you believe has been your greatest lesson?
Nancy Moran: Throughout my life I have learnt many lessons, but the one that has stuck with me the most has been that you need to accept yourself first for who you are and then eventually, everyone else will do the same. Growing up I spent my time always trying to please everyone when instead I should have invested some of that time on building myself. Being confident and loving yourself leads to a happier and more positive life.
Q. Who or what has been your greatest support in life?
Nancy Moran: Fortunately, I feel blessed to have parents who taught me how to be independent in every situation. I am very grateful for them, I love them and I cannot thank them enough.
Q. Lastly, any message for the readers and your well-wishers.
Nancy Moran: Yes, I hope and pray that everyone reading this is well and healthy, especially during this pandemic. I would also like to give a huge thank you to everyone who has been supporting me. It truly means the world to me. Lastly, I would like to end this interview on a positive note by reminding everyone to take the time to show your love and appreciation to those you love. Thank you.
