What if one opportunity could change your life?
The Australian International Pageant platform creates opportunity
This year I hoped I would be able to give my son a sibling. However when I learnt that it was not going to happen in my timing, I was reminded that everything happens for a reason and that God has bigger plans. In that moment, I applied to the Australian International pageant as it supports married women who want to make a difference and give back to an organisation. As a successful entrant, I became a Mrs. Australia 2018 National Finalist. I choose my platform Act for Kids, as it helps prevent and treat child abuse within Australia, giving children back their childhood.
During my time as a National finalist, Act for Kids have made me their first Victorian Ambassador. With this title, I hope to use my skills and knowledge as not only a mum but a business woman to help create change and educate people on what Act for Kids does.

This journey has and continues to lead me to great opportunities that would not have presented themselves if I didn’t enter the Australian International Pageant. I believe that the pageant has created a platform to help women like myself grab opportunities to give back and make a difference.
