One of my fellow pole fitness classmates Svetlana Makoutina is a finalist for a beauty pageant here in Melbourne named Magnificent Miss 2014. Svetlana is 29 years old, currently working as a National Retail Property Analyst for ANZ bank and volunteers as a finance board member for a not for profit organisation. She loves to stay active through photography, traveling and spending time with friends.
As a hobby she also does fitness modelling and body building. Svetlana volunteers a lot of her time to the Parkinson Disease community through networking, building awareness about the disease and providing community groups with access to education and training on how to continue living their lives with Parkinson disease.
She is very excited about being a part of Magnificent Miss as she has worked with children from abusive homes previously as well as children with psychological conditions and found it so rewarding and she would love to be able to contribute in a different way to raise awareness for children with Heart Disease as well through Magnificent Miss 2014.
Wishing Svetlana all the best – truly beauty, brains and for such a good cause.
