Miss Venezuela Dayana Mendoza, a kidnap victim

Miss Universe 2008 candidate Dayana Mendoza was once a kidnap victim.

That's what she herself shared in her interview profile found on MissUniverse.com.

According to her, it was one hard experience and I think she applied there the essence of being a beauty queen, that is being calm and poised in any given situation.

Dayana is one of the hot favorites for Miss Universe 2008 and if she wins, her kidnap experience is one great element of her life story.

Here's an excerpt of the said interview:

What are your interests and what do you enjoy doing the most?
Interior design, photography, advertising, and I enjoy meeting people from every country and learning languages.

What is your career ambition?
Interior Design and also advertising but as Oscar Wilde used to say, "To define oneself is to limit oneself".

What is your proudest personal accomplishment?
Being independent from the age of fifteen on, living in different countries by myself without knowing the language at the beginning and without the presence of my parents. Having succeeded in working in different cultures and learning the most from them.

What is something unique that has happened to you; some interesting thing about you?
I was once kidnapped, in what in my country is known as an express kidnapping. It was a very hard experience. I learned to remain calm in a very stressful situation and to try to reach to the human part of our abductors.

What do you want the judges to know about you?
I am grateful to life for my family and for the opportunities to grow in different places and learn the most from them. Even in the hardest of times what my family and life has taught me has helped me push through and succeed.
