Miss Sweden Jessica Olers
A: One person who means a lot to me is my sister. We are very close, and we can talk about everything. She encouraged me to run for Miss Sweden. Without her, I wouldn't be where I am today.
Q: What is your proudest personal accomplishment (other than representing your country in this pageant)?
A: As a contestant in the Miss Sweden pageant, one of my responsibilities was to visit young people in the schools and warn them about the dangers of tobacco. I visited about 25 classes, and they were very receptive.
Q: What is your most treasured possession? Why?
A: My most treasured possession is my traditional Swedish national costume because it reminds me of my country and our customs.
Q: What is your career ambition? What are you doing or plan to do to accomplish that goal?
A: In the future, I would like to hold a satisfying job; to accomplish that goal I'm planning to study international economics.
Q: What is the most important message or lesson someone in your unique position can convey?
A: The most important thing is to continue to be myself and not think that I am better than anyone else just because I'm Miss Sweden.
Q: If you became MISS UNIVERSE and have a chance to represent the women of the world, what is the primary goal you would want to accomplish?
A: I would like to help the world's homeless, because I think that it is very important for everyone to have a home to feel safe in.
Q: What question would you like to answer that you have never been asked? What is the answer?
A: None that I would wish to share with others; they are too personal.
Q: We are approaching the millennium, a once-every-1000-year milestone. What do you think the role of women will be in the next century?
A: In the next century I think that the role of women will be better and more equal with that of men. I hope the condition of women in poorer countries will be as it is for those of us in richer countries today.
