‘All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them,’ – Walt Disney Once upon a time I was a young girl with big dreams to take over the world. Little did I know where this journey in life would take me. By being courageous enough to enter the Miss Intercontinental system I have been blessed with the opportunity to represent my country internationally. We can all achieve our goals in live with one courageous and fearless step to pursue them. I hail from a small coastal town in Western Australia and moved to Perth as an adolescent with my family for a better education. I studied a double bachelor of business and art at university and entered my first professional role as a Human Resources officer at 21. After only 6 months I realised I had a greater purpose in life and returned to university to complete my masters in education with the goal to inspire children to follow their dreams. I am now a primary school educator working with young children from diverse backgrounds with different abilities. Ever since I was young I knew I wanted to help people but never realised the impact that this would have on my life. Every day I get to be a role model for young children, teaching them the importance of respect, resilience and striving to achieve your goals. My students know how passionate I am about my job, and how dedication and persistence has gotten me to where I am today. As a devoted educator I value education equality and the importance of ensuring that children have equal opportunities in life despite poverty and marginalisation. It is my mission to promote this on the international stage and spread the message of equal education. My power of beauty is spreading the gift of kindness through philanthropy and inspiring young people to dream and achieve anything they set their mind on.
