For Sylvie Tellier, general manager of the company Miss France, the “competition makes people dream. It’s a fairy tale. In one evening, the fate of your neighbor, your cousin, can change“.
“Cis why I did Miss France 20 years ago“
For the 72nd Miss France in history, it was this dream, this opportunity to live an extraordinary experience that led her to register for the Miss Lyon competition in May 2001. “I’m not ashamed to say it. That’s why I did Miss France 20 years ago. For the opportunity to live a dream, to fly for the first time, to leave France for a week in a luxury hotel in La Reunion. It is a real gift for these young women. For seven days you are surrounded by 80 people who make you feel good. It’s a dream”.
