Teens keen to spread mes­sage across Gal­axy

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

BEELIAR res­i­dent Jour­dyn Spin­ley says she can not wait to com­pete in the Miss Teen Gal­axy na­tional fi­nals.

The 16-year-old will travel to the Gold Coast on Wed­nes­day, chas­ing the crown and the chance to com­pete for the in­ter­na­tional ti­tle.

Af­ter qual­i­fy­ing for Satur­day’s fi­nal last De­cem­ber, the Year 11 stu­dent said she was keen for the wait­ing game to be over.

“My main goal in the com­pe­ti­tion is to be con­tent, pos­i­tive and hum­ble, to be my­self and to make mem­o­ries with all the girls from across the coun­try,” she said.

“I know a few of the com­peti­tors who com­peted with me in 2014.

“It def­i­nitely helps know­ing some faces and makes me more calm and ex­cited.”

The na­tional win­ner will travel to the USA in July to com­pete for the in­ter­na­tional crown.

“To be granted the op­por­tu­nity to rep­re­sent my coun­try on an in­ter­na­tional stage would be mind­blow­ing,” Jour­dyn said.

“All the past win­ners who have rep­re­sented Aus­tralia have made us so proud and have set a very high and pro­fes­sional stan­dard for fu­ture win­ners.

“It would be an ab­so­lute honour to fol­low in their foot­steps.”

Jour­dyn has spent the school year to date study­ing with SEDA Col­lege. She said she was keen to take up a ca­reer in sports sci­ence or sports psy­chol­ogy.

Also trav­el­ling to Queens­land to the Miss Gal­axy Aus­tralia pageant is Atwell res­i­dent Jade Ma­clou.

She wants to use the com­pe­ti­tion to raise aware­ness of men­tal ill­ness.
