Local duo ready to take on the world
COMO BEAUTY and brains are the key to success, according to two southern suburbs Miss World Australia contestants.
Narisha Miller and Bianca Frank-Jones are WA finalists in the competition and both are studying at university.
Como resident Narisha Miller, a science graduate majoring in pharmacology and physiology, said the best part about the competition was the wide variety of women who entered.
“Miss World embraces women of all sizes, shapes and nationalities, and (is) an incredible chance to give back and help others,” Ms Miller said.
“I hope to see and hopefully visit the children as well for a more personal interaction with the charity.”
Cloverdale resident Bianca Frank-Jones is studying environmental science and said the competition had steered away from the sexist images of the past.
“I think men react positively to the competition,” Ms FrankJones said.
“When mingling with guests at the launch, all of the men I spoke to were very encouraging of me and wanted to know more about what I do and the kind of person I am.
“Miss World hasn’t helped me find any dates and I don't think the competition is for that; if anything, it has helped me find more of myself.
