Roushelle Green, Miss Canada Petite 2012, a god-fearing, honest and poised young woman.
2)What 3 words best describe you as a person?
I am a creative, poised and determined individual.
3)Describe your fashion sense?
I dress based on my mood. My style is a mixture of opulence, bombshell, chic, modern and great influence from my culture.
4)What made you decide to enter the Miss Canada Petite pageant?
Hmm, it was always a dream to become Miss Jamaica Universe, but of course my height would never allow me to enter based on Miss Universe policies. Then MCP pageant was found while searching for a job on kijiji and a friend encouraged me to enter.
5)How did you prepare for this contest?
My quest to the crown was a huge struggle, it created a strain on my parents as well, even during my reign i still struggled but i overcame all obstacles. To be honest i had a pageant coach, Tamika Wilson who has multiple titles under her belt, but after one session she said Roush you got this. Shelly-ann Mcleod choreographed my talent number, custom dress made by Yetunde Sopeju, and my custom made international costume by myself and Noel Audain, renowned Carnival Mas designer.
6)After meeting the ladies did you had any idea you were going to win?
NOPE! I had absolutely no idea, I took home Miss International Costume which fast tracked me to top 10 but i was still scared and nervous, didn't expect to win. Didn't know what to expect at all!
7)What do you think you have done to win the hearts of the judges?
Honestly, i stayed true to myself, i do have a streak for being unpredictable so noone knew what to expect from me. The judges were around us for the entire week on outings so they observed you off the stage as well. I'm a friendly people person so creating a general association with everyone comes easy for me.
8)If you were to walk the red carpet which designer would you wear and why?
Oh jeez what a question! Maybe its because i'm creatively crazy i would want to wear something from Alexander McQueen, because he is unpredictable and unique. The dress chosen would need to be 'sleek' but accented by a 'WOW' element.
9)If you were given a ticket to fly anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
Ghana! I want to know my deepest roots. Yes i am born and raised Jamaican but my bloodline connects to the Maroons, which also shows in my facial features. My middle name, Soyini, is also Ghanaian and in my opinion, where you are going transcends to the person who you are and where you came from.
10)What do you enjoy doing when your free?
I am forever reading a novel or researching how to build a business and philanthropy. I also love culture, food and dancing.
11)What perfume are you wearing as we speak?
Sexual Secret by Michel Germain.
Being perverted and lying.
13)What are 4 secrets to winning a pageant crown?
Its all about character, intelligence, beauty and hard work.
14)If you had the power to change the pageant world what would you change and why?
Every pageant system is different but one thing i would change is a height restriction, because you never know which 5ft girl can capture the Miss Universe crown. Also equality, pageant world can be very biased. Its a crucial world, it could make or break you.
My beautiful reggae and dancehall is where i'm rooted but I am not afraid to say i am a soca junkie, I get possessed!
16)What do you think of the Fashion Police News Blog?
Its a good read and offers exposure for artists, models, and pageant queens! Each interview inspires and teaches others.
17)What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?
I applaud them, walk doesn't have a gender. Its either you have it or you don't, and if you don't then you better go learn from the best!
You mean dishes! I love to eat so lets say Oxtail would be my first choice.
19)If the Fashion Police was to be a fly on your bedroom wall what would they be shocked to see?
They wouldn't be able to tell the difference between my bag, the wall, my cup and many other things. ITS ALL PINK!
20)Who are your 4 best friends you would ride and die for?
Devaughney Samuels, Jordann Bolt, Melony Tomlinson, Sharona Green, Keniece Fuller, Lejahmai Palmer, Kiara Mercury-Phillips and Samantha Saab. Sorry i have 8 friends who always had my back and i will never leave theirs.
21)Where do you see yourself in 6 years time?
I would be finished with university with my clothing label and media company on the rise.
Follow the pageant rules to a T, don't be apart of the camouflage, stand out and portray the real you. Be very humble and a good competitor. If you fail to prepare then prepare to fail.
23)Tell us more about yourself as a person?
About RouRou? Well i have always been living in my own princess world, i am very kind hearted and i can't stop myself from helping. I will never truly open up to anyone personally but if its business i'm there, i will always be a shoulder for others. I love to create, so i keep a dreams/idea journal.
24)If you were to change into a fruit what fruit would you turn into and why?
Strawberry, its my favourite. Its tiny but has explosive characteristics, it reminds me of myself.
Never forget who you are in everything you do. When you find your purpose you will find happiness forever. Always put God first!
Crowns & Hugs! Toodles!!
