4)What made you decide to enter Ms Jamaica UK 2013 pageant?
Beauty Pageants are a platform and stepping stone for any young lady and I have been in pageants before but I really wanted to do one that represented me as a person and who I am. I have a following in the pageant industry from many different backgrounds but I wanted to share a bit of my culture with them.

5)After meeting all the ladies did you had a feeling you would have won?
Honestly when I got there and saw the high standard of girls I thought there is no way I have got this at the same time you can't be negative in these situations so I was having real mixed emotions, but by the end I just couldn't call it at all.

6)What would you say you have done on the night that won the judges heart?
I was myself but a lot of people including judges said I had an amazing smile and innocent charm.

7)What are your 4 top secrets to winning a pageant?
Practice makes perfect, I would say at least 6 months of hardcore preparation. The walk, the talk,the poise and the confidence. Beauty alone will not win you any title you must have the package but most of all that confidence and that presence that captures others.

8)What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love modelling, spending times with friends and family. I'm a big foodie I need my food so I love trying out different restaurants around London especially in Mayfair.

It's a great read, it's informative yet creative. It's entertaining and a great networking blog.

12)What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?
It's a fab idea, sometimes it's great to see what a man would like in a women and I think it's a great way to get some inside secrets lol.

13)If the Fashion Police was to have dinner at your home what dish would you prepare them?
Well as I'm British and Jamaican you can have the best of both worlds.but your main dish would be curry mutton,with rice and peas and coleslaw with some coconut water.

14)If you was to walk the red carpet which designer would you wear and why?
Vera wang, class sophistication yet sexy. Really defines a women's inner beauty, the shapes and the detail enhances a women natural beauty.

15)What perfume are you wearing as we speak?
Coco mademoiselle

16)If you had the power to change the pageant world what is one thing you would change and why?
I would take out the swimwear round, I don't believe it's significant. I don't believe a women's body should help define whether she is the winner. I think it's all about the confidence no matter what size or shape you are

17)If you was given 2 tickets to fly anywhere in the caribbean which 2 island would you visit and why?
Jamaica of course because its my homeland and I love visiting my family. And Barbados because it looks absolutely divine and I only hear positive things about it.

Surgery is not an option.

20)Tell us a little about Jamaica?
Jamaica speaks for it self really, our culture is positively and rapidly growing in many parts of the world.its exotic, welcoming and captivating. For anyone that visits it will be an experience of a lifetime. 
Jamaica is nature at its best, it's a natural climate, somewhere you can unwind and remember what life is truly about.

21)What advice do you have for other women looking to enter pageants?
Don't enter because you want to dress up you can do that anytime. I think for me I take them so seriously because I've utilised it to build myself a platform and open doors for myself. You have to be smart and also be ready for the politics around it, although it has its positives it has its negatives and you must be ready. Yes have fun and cherish the moments and the friends you will make.

22)Who inspire you most and why?
Mama. Wow what a strong, beautiful women she is. If you want an inspiring story of a women who has been through many ups and downs but still managed to do everything on her own then my mum is that person.

Lol, my mum says I'm very messy but ill leave that there.

1)Please tell us who you are you. for those not familiar with you? 
well my name is Ms. Maggie Mathew ,a proud mother of three beautiful children(two girls ,one boy)

 Determined am I, very much ambitious, and kindhearted.

3)Describe your fashion sense?
 My fashion sense is very, sexy, elegant, classy, conservative ,creative, and sometimes a little wild lol.

4)Tell us all about this new walking group u now manage from when you started to this day?
Well St. Maarten Fiercelicious mature walkers is just not a walking group, we walk for and with a purpose, where as women/girls wanting the same things, when it comes to health fitness, loosing weight or just the idea of looking good, where we come together 5 days of the week, motivated and determined to reach a certain goal, and motivate each other in every way, it's not a group of walking and chatting or gossiping ,we have one thing in mind and that's to see and get results.I have started this group in October after several discussions about it with other ladies like myself  wanting to walk and keep fit, loose weight as well, and determined of course.

5)What made you decide to start such a group?
What made me decide to start such a group, well I've been walking since after my first born who is now 16 years old, walking on and off, just loved it, and found it to be very challenging if I wanted to loose that weight, and everyone seemed to want to join me, Then after the birth of my baby boy this pass July, seeing that weight again I started walking, and was encouraged by my brother Mr. catwalk Professor to start a walking group since I was so much into it, so here I am today with this group.

6)There might be many other walking groups out there, what makes Fiercelicious Mature Walkers different from all the rest?
Well every other walking group has their goals etc ,but what makes Fiercelicious Walkers different is our fierceness, to want more out of life especially when it comes to health, it's not about just you as an individual, what really separates fiercelicous from the rest is that we have goals and we are determined, its not a laughing matter, it's finally taking something serious and execute that goal, fiercelicous is a group that sees people's flaws and turns them into beauty. It's having patients with each individual and motivate them to never give up, because the ending results is awesome, we  are  definitely fierce and loving it.

7)Why did you all name this group Fiercelious Mature Walkers?
Because we are Fierce individuals who is Mature enough to realize that, we need to make a change health wise, when it comes to our health and body, and we are different in our own ways, we are young ,vibrant, talented,successful,independent.bold and beautiful, we are all that build in one word Fierce.

8)Where do you see this group in the next 2 years?
Next two years i see this group expanded greatly, to the point that we can even organize annual walks with the Caribbean islands, just keeping, and giving awareness of good health, and good eating habits. Even taking part in walkathons internationally.

9)What are 4 things you see women doing after giving birth that makes you mad?
1. Well still believe there life is the same after having a baby, like clubbing, at least give baby a few months, then they can go out now and again, but after you have kids your time becomes theirs until they can handle them selves.(not all women does)
2. Never taking their kids no place, always see them dress, and kids left with babysitter or family member etc.
3. And allowing them selves to get unfit ,gets to relax, and not taking care of them selves, their excuse I guess just had a baby, ether it be 1 year or six years ago.
4. Taking babies places they should not be, like here in sxm at carnival at jump ups ,Festival Village etc where the music trucks speakers are to much for babies' ears, we as adults need to be more responsible at times.

10)How can someone join this group and what are the requirements?
To join the group you first better be determined ,serious, and fierce, and goal orientated ,then you just go on face book and type in St.Maarten fiercelicious mature walkers and like the page, it's always being updated on our upcoming walks for each day, so if your not goal orientated this group is not for you.

11)What do you love most about keeping fit?
What I love most is seeing the progress, from the exercising to the right eating habits, and when i jump on that scale, and I see those numbers dropping or put on an outfit that could not fit me before. oh boy that's more inspiration for me(I think my mirror gets tired of seeing me)

12)Is it really hard to loose baby fat after giving birth?
well loosing baby fat after giving birth, is different for most women, I have seen some ladies, just loose that fat like 123, others takes months or even years, but I can only speak for my self, it's hard work to get that baby fat off, as for me I was always a lady that loves dressing etc. and to look in that mirror, and to see myself with  side rolls ,belly fat, big butt ,and a brother reminding me 24/7 and mother to bring Ms Sexy back, that was enough motivation for me.

13)What have been the longest walking route you all have ever done?
We began this journey in Oct 2013 ,We have not accomplished the longest route, however the most challenging was climbing the hill leading to the St.Maarten Prison.

14)Tell us briefly about a few of your team members?
Michael: is our chef, father of three. Always gives advice on how we should eat.
Shamilla: is very laid back and reserved, always takes notes.
Nicki      : struggles with her weight, but yet determined to meet her Birthday goals.
Nyoka    : Bubbly personality, sees obstacles as challenges.
Tamara  :spontaneous, the light that shines through the group.
D'shnay  :our motivator, slimmest one out of the group, but focuses on helping out the others.
D'yonce  :is very determined as well, following in mommy's footsteps, even goes to aerobics with mom Christina.
Christina: Very quiet, outgoing, and very motivated.

15)If the Fashion police was to have dinner at your home what dish would you prepare for him?
Well all excited I would be to have him over so dinner would be Lemon-Thyme Chicken with sautéed vegetables. And gladly ask bro can you wash up lol.

16)If you was to be given one ticket to fly anywhere where would you go and why? 
It would be definitely be China, wanting to know more about their eating culture and cuisine ,why they keep so thin.

17)What are some keys things women need to keep in mind when planning to loose weight?
Losing weight is not easy. The physical stress it puts on your body is one thing, but you are also put under mental stress. Yes, losing weight is as much of a mental battle as it is a physical one. That is why conditioning your mind and body is an important thing to do during the whole process.

18)Who are some of the people that may have inspire you?
Wow there is quit a few but ,health, physically,fitness wise there is Mr. Francis Mathew(Mr. catwalk Professor),Ms Allison Williams, Rayetta Harrell ,Marci Cooke ,Malkier Schnitzler ,Menavia Langlais williams.

19)When you look in the mirror then and now what reactions and feeling do you get?
Then I was like hell no, now it's like Oh My Gosh Maggie you getting well sexy, noticed I used the word getting cause it's a process and I'm not done yet.(smile)

20)What advice do you have for others looking to walk into your path?
My advice would be to love and appreciate your self, in all ways possible especially health wise, in today's world, we have too and should take our health seriously, and showing good examples to our kids, junk food is not the way out, trust me I've been there,the weight is easy to put on  but hard to get off.

21)Any last words for our many blog readers world wide?
yes I sure do!!!!!!!   we as individuals have to love each other, motivate and be an inspiration to each other, uplift each other instead of bringing each other down, we are all equal in God's eyes, appreciate each other for who we are individually.
