"Dear friends and family,
Finally, after a few crazy days, I have gotten round to saying something very important to you. I want to thank you for all your support, with your shares, kind wishes and wonderful messages during my time in the Miss Universe Slovakia competition. I don’t just say my words lightly, I mean them from the bottom of my heart, it really meant a lot to me to see you stand behind me and want the best for me.
To win, was a wonderful surprise and it made it all the more special to receive all the kind messages and congratulations from you. I tried to answer all of them individually, but it was a lot, so in this way, I’d like to say thank you to each one of you, who took the time to write me a message.
Soon, I will be off to Thailand to represent my home country in the international Miss Universe competition. To be honest, it’s a crazy feeling and I am still not completely realizing it yet, that from one day to the next, I have this kind of big change/opportunity come to my life. It is a great honor and I promise to give my best, for myself, for my country but also for all of you too, who are standing behind me.
Sending all of you much love and happiness"
