1st runner up for Miss British Empire World finals (international Pageant)👑. Warning long post ahead 😝.
I also took out another 2 awards that were judged from both overall two categories (mrs and misses contestants), 🏆BEST PHOTOGRAPHIC- my absolute favvvveee award to win, & 🏆BEST EVENING WEAR- thanks so much Paula for lining my dress & Louise + Erica for helping me backstage to make the dress perfect for on stage
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little upset that I won’t be the one to represent Australia at Miss Tourism planet in Greece (I just want to be real and honest with you guys). I would have put my heart and soul into proudly representing Aus with my knowledge and skills. Regardless, this doesn’t take away from the fact that I am extremely proud with how I performed and all the effort I put into preparing for this pageant. To receive a high score in an international pageant is something to be more than delighted about, I pushed outside of my comfort zone (I would always say to myself I’m not the pageant type/I won’t do pageants etc) and allowed for personal growth, the experience and things I’ve learnt from this is what I’ll take into account forever. I started my journey competing only last year and have come so far, beyond what I imagined. Thank you so much to every single person who supports me in my journey❤️ I’ll cherish you all always.
I have so much more people to thank and I will 100% mention you all in my next post!!! Thank you sponsors, judges, my hairstylist Julie, mbe crew and Csc for making this happen! & massive congrats to every single contestant, getting on stage is incredibly difficult(be proud!). I am mentally and physically drained today from a long day yesterday, but am ready to keep going and improving 💪 (fun fact this is my first time getting second! so I finally have the sash to add to my collection hehe)
