MILES Miss Show­girl Brooke Geary said she is ex­cited and hon­oured to be rep­re­sent­ing the South West Sub-Cham­ber at the Queens­land Coun­try Life Miss Show­girl com­pe­ti­tion after she wowed judges in Mitchell last week.

Ms Geary is bound for Bris­bane after out-do­ing seven other Miss Show­girls from across the south west to be se­lected to rep­re­sent the re­gion at the Royal Queens­land Show (Ekka) in Au­gust.

The com­pe­ti­tion brings to­gether rep­re­sen­ta­tives from 11 sub-cham­bers from across Queens­land with one girl from each be­ing cho­sen to at­tend state fi­nals.

Ms Geary said her ex­pe­ri­ence had been a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to de­velop her con­fi­dence, public speak­ing and lead­er­ship skills, and that she was extremely proud to be rep­re­sent­ing her re­gion.

“Our re­gion is so di­verse there is some­thing for any vis­i­tor who comes to our re­gion. I love that we have so much to of­fer and I am be­yond proud to be able to pro­mote such a beau­ti­ful, vi­brant di­verse and amaz­ing re­gion. We are such a large area but you never lose that sense of com­mu­nity,” she said.

Ms Geary, 22, said while she hoped to per­form well in the next round she is just grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity to take part.

“I can't thank all the peo­ple in­volved enough for this op­por­tu­nity, in par­tic­u­lar the Miles and Dis­trict Show So­ci­ety, Mitchell Show So­ci­ety and Queens­land Coun­try Life,” she said.

“I am go­ing to the next level hope­ful of do­ing very well but I am just hon­oured to have made it this far.

“So long as I rep­re­sent the south-west re­gion to the best of my abil­ity and en­cour­age oth­ers to visit our amaz­ing area – I will con­sider that a win in it­self.

“I would re­ally en­cour­age ladies to par­tic­i­pate in the Miss Show­girl com­pe­ti­tion be­cause it is great for per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and is a net­work­ing op­por­tu­nity not to be missed. I have loved my time in the com­pe­ti­tion so far and have made friends for life.”
