Growing up, my parents fostered children hoping to make a difference in each child’s life. From a very young age, I quickly learnt about the different types of abuse that would result in children ending up in homes like ours.
My little heart would empathize for each child. I would look for ways to show them compassion and kindness. Whether it be sharing my toys, playing games or writing them little notes telling them how I think they are “awesome” and to “have a great”. But I would wonder if any of my actions was helping them or even making a difference.

As a young child, I knew that when I grew up I wanted to do more than just share my possessions. I wanted to find a way to erase their pain.
Despite completing my degree in Psychology, no book or counseling session, could change a child’s past. When I got married, my amazing husband and I began to foster children. Whether it is short-term care or long-term, I was determined to make a difference and be a role model to the children coming and going from our home.

In 2016, when I became a mum to our son, my vision in life became clear. I knew that despite opening our home, abuse had already taken place prior to a child entering into our home. My mission is to ensure that every child has a safe and happy childhood, free from abuse and neglect. We cannot change a child’s past, but we can ensure that their future is secure, filled with love and protection.

And that is exactly what the charity ‘Act For Kids’ does.
I have become an ambassador for Act For Kids where I can have my message heard.

The Australian International Beauty Pageant has created a world wide platform to showcase women who are passionate about creating long lasting change and that is my very mission.

Beauty is a reflection of the heart and that is exactly why I chose to apply Mrs. Australia.
