Nikita McElroy: Making Her Dreams Come True, Wins Ms. Resorts World Manila

Nikita McElroy, the statuesque girl from Davao , was crowned Ms. Resorts World Manila held recently. She won from hundreds of contestants pared down to 20 semi finalists.

Nikita went through rigorous weeks of workshops and training including personality development, hair, make-up and wardrobe seminars, styling and fashion workshops.

Nikita will be Resorts World Manila brand ambassador for a year. While representing Resorts World Manila in various events, she will also have an important role in hosting Resorts World Manila events, radio and TV guestings, fashion shows and print ad modeling.

Among her prizes include cash and inclusion in the Resorts World Manila 2014 Calendar.

“Honestly, I was confident although all of the contestants thought the same way as I did. We already had that winning demeanor. I felt very lucky that night,” said a beaming Nikita.

Nikita was determined to win. At 20 years old, she already knows what it feels like to want something so bad she’ll do anything to get it.

And slowly her dreams are coming to reality.

Nikita was living in Davao when she was plucked with an offer to be a model in Manila . Her exotic looks courtesy of her French-Black American father and Filipina mother, was too apparent not to be noticed.

But her aunt who served as her guardian at the time, put her foot down until after Nikita finishes school. “Ayaw ng tita ko kung hindi ako makakatapos ng pag aaral.”

After graduating from high school, she was finally allowed to model. She also had the opportunity to join a star search, that nearly did not happen. “I was in a photo shoot and the audition for the star search was scheduled on the same day. Sabi ko, bahala na si Lord,” said Nikita.

An hour before the audition closed, Nikita was at the audition venue, still panting from the rush. “I was one of the last three applicants.” And the day proved to be beneficial, she got a text that she passed for the final screening.

“When you really want something, makukuha mo. Kailangan focus ka talaga,” she added.

Nikita who is being managed by Backroom and is part of the group called NYOBG, said that she is looking forward to bigger and brighter things ahead of her. There are projects waiting in the wings, that include commercials and TV appearances.

In the meantime, Nikita is focusing on her Ms. Resorts World Manila win.

“I am just too happy where I am now. I am so much inspired. And I promise to be the best in what I do. Yes, I want to do a little bit of everything.”
