Melisa, such an absolute honour to have you on the January cover of FHM Canada! Congratulations on being crowned Miss New York US Nation 2021, what was that experience like for you? And I’m glad to meet you too! Thanks for the question and congratulations. I still remember with awe this day and in general the whole preparation for the competition. Then I perfectly understood that the struggle for the crown would not be easy as each woman came to win. For such a competition, some special demands were put forward: you have to present yourself beautifully from the stage, have good looks and, of course, be smart and wise. And if you have all this, the victory is yours. Having received the crown, I did not even think about popularity (although it came to me immediately). What experience was that for me? Definitely priceless.

You’re on your journey to taking part in the Miss Nation Universe crown, talk to us a little about that? Of course! Preparation for all beauty contests, including Miss Nation Universe, takes enough time. There are no secrets: I add more sports, I try to eat less sweet (it turns out difficult), I go to the procedures. And so life continues and no one cancelled the work. All I can do, I do/(I’m doing everything I can). And only the jury has the right to decide who is more worthy of receiving the title of the most beautiful and successful woman.

Top 3 best moments of your career? There were many of them, so it is difficult to single out only three. These are covers for top magazines such as: GRAZIA, Harper’s Bazaar, FHM, LAZIN, GMARO, Playboy, TOUCH, L’Officiel. Also victories in beauty contests, travellings, acquaintances with talented people (designers, photographers, artists, businessmen). My modeling career is rapidly going up and I am not going to stop there. Going purposefully to success is like shooting at targets: it is worth shooting down one, as several more immediately appear. Such rapid changes present me with more and more obstacles. Therefore, I get true pleasure when I get up to work or go to another interview every morning. After all, all the thrill is in the process, and not in victories (although this is also nice).

THE GINGER GENIUS Ed Sheeran's astonishing success

Music is a powerful art form, it has the ability to transform a mood, evoke memories of a long-lost love, and has the power to bring people together. And no artist currently encapsulates all those elements more than Ed Sheeran. The world’s most famous redhead and one of the most talented musicians currently around, Sheeran has transformed the way people listen to music as well as how they perceive the typical rock star look. Of course, Sheeran was not always a superstar who stole people’s hearts, instead, he was an insecure young boy who had to escape the school bullying through music.

THUMBS UP...has being risk-averse robbed us of a ride?

Our thumbs are useful for gripping, allowing fingers to click, and acknowledging when things are OK or not so good. I also remember it being used in an elegant metaphor for night shift town center foot patrol when I was a copper in the then concrete jungle of Bracknell's pedestrianized shopping center in the early 1980s: thumb up bum, brain in neutral.
