Each month GOLDENROOM features an individual or individual in the public eye, whose personhood and life is a testimony to who we recognised and represent, and to our ethos of cross cultural relations.
This month, for our Health and Beauty edition we are delighted to have as our GOLDENROOM ICON, Miss Elmira Abdrazakova who has won the title of Miss Russia 2013. Elmira is part Tatar Muslim and part Russian, and her dual heritage are wonderfully representative of a modern, multicultural heritage.
But not everyone thinks so, and while we think that all our GOLDENROOM ICONS are beautiful, we are sure you will agree, that Elmira’s beauty is more than skin deep, which she proves in her dignified response to her racist critics.
