“Dear visitors, welcome to my Miss World page!”
Arna says she can always be found with a big smile on her face, and always looks on the bright side of life. An international athlete, she is part of the Icelandic track & field team, pole vaulting for Iceland for the past 5 years after progressing from gymnastics. Currently at college, she plans on studying Nursing at university before pursuing a career in midwifery. She also loves to paint, and sells her paintings online via her Facebook page. Arna is also a big lover of animals, and currently cares for a cat she rescued from the street and a puppy. Arna’s favourite food is her grandmothers and she says her Icelandic meat soup is the best.
“My country has a fresh and clean air. The water is clean and the best in the world! I live in the capital city, but still it’s very peaceful and quiet.”

Auction Gift - "Beauty Comes from Inside" piece
"Beauty Comes from Inside"
Beauty is everywhere. If you don't see it you have to look closer.
I made (with a help) a three layer round shaped clay with a hole through the middle. If you look closely through the hole you can see a beautiful white rose.
The message behind this art is that you should never judge someone or something by the appearance. The clay is black and rough and the rose inside is made of white porcelain clay. Everyone is supposed to get the same chance in life independent the appearance.
The glazes of this artistic piece is ash from volcanic eruptions in Iceland.
Three layers means "faith, hope and love".
