Melisa Gun is a published fashion model and the reigning Miss New York US Nation 2021 titleholder. Since she was a child, just like every young girl; she always dreamed of walking down the runway, trying on different looks, participating in famous shows and working with brands.
Melisa has been a model since she was 18 years old and what began as a hobby turned into a second job for her. Melisa views the modeling industry as one of hard work and dedication, “There is definitely no place for laziness, irresponsibility, and lack of motivation here. People in this field know that to be a successful model you need not only to have good external parameters but also other important qualities – persistence, character and commitment”, says Melisa. Living in New York, Melisa decided to cast for Miss US Nation pageants; it was an opportunity for her to advance her modeling career and try something new.
She was selected to represent Miss Manhattan and later advanced to the state pageant that occurred on June 26th 2021, Miss New York East Coast US Nation 2021 and won the title for her state. Melisa is excited to advance to the national competition; Miss US Nation 2021; which will be held in Las Vegas, NV and put in her best effort to represent herself and the state of New York. One stereotype that Melisa would like to break about modeling and pageantry is bringing out the professionalism of the industry and showing others that just like any profession; modeling is a real career that requires effort and commitment on your part in order to succeed.
Something unique about the model of Turkish descent, is that she speaks 4 languages – Russian, Ukrainian, Turkish, English and Melisa is now learning how to speak Arabic. Not only has Melisa lived in Turkey, but she has also resided in Russia, Ukraine and Switzerland while she was a child. Melisa has a passion for equestrian sports; she says that interacting with animals helps take her mind off daily routines. In 5 years from now, Melisa sees herself as the Face of a Fashion House, as a famous model and happy wife to a man that she loves.
Melisa is currently seeking sponsors for her reign to ultimately the Miss Nation Universe crown.
