2005— International Winner
Tonia Croft, Frankston, Australia
I believe Beauty is more important in life because it is always
what is on the inside that counts. Then again it makes me think
twice, the Truth is also very important. One lie can turn into
a thousand lies, but I am still convinced that Beauty is more
important. Even bad people have something inside them that is
worthy, you just can't see it.
"Beauty is not in the face, it is a light in the heart."
Something special lies within everybody's personality. We all
have different levels of courage and bravery, we all have different
ways to succeed and accomplish things. Everyone is different;
that is why we are so Beautiful.
Beauty is connected to Truth; someone who is truthful is beautiful.
Beauty sees the good and bad in things but it makes its own decision
whether to be a leader or a follower. Beauty makes its own choices,
it is not afraid to be itself, it is not afraid to be who it really
"Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them".
The Beautiful person sometimes encourages the bad and untruthful
person to be Beautiful. Although sometimes people don't see the
point in being kind and caring, they don't understand. You can't
change them - it could be too difficult. You just have to stand
up for yourself.
