Q. Beauty tips?

A. Smile, drink plenty of water and always take your make up off before bed.

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Everyone is different.

Q. Do you think a man should treat a woman like he does his car?

A. Not at all. Women should never be treated like a possession regardless of how much attention they might receive.

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. Venice, It’s so beautiful and has great food.

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. My dad has a great outlook on life. He inspires me to lead a healthier lifestyle and to do what makes me happy.

Q. People you've admired generally?

A. Angelina Jolie. I think she is so beautiful and works hard to make a difference in the world. Seeing her raise a family, have a career and still make time for her humanitarian efforts is really impressive and shows that you can do anything if you put our mind to it.

Q. Is there a particular social issue that has disturbed you, and do you have any ideas in solving the problem?

A. Child obesity is a huge issue at the moment and it really upsets me because these children aren’t to blame. I think educating parents and society on how to keep their children healthy and active will be the biggest help in fixing the problem. It’s definitely something that we as a community need to be focusing on.

Q. Future ambitions - including what Miss World Australia means to you and why entered?

A. I think Miss World Australia is an incredibly opportunity. To me it’s not only a fantastic chance to get involved in modelling and acting but also to become a part of some amazing organisations and charity projects. My current ambition is to make my way into feature films. I love every aspect of the film industry and would love to get more involved in it.
