Third time lucky for win­ner Elise

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

IT was third time lucky for Elise Naz­zari when she claimed the crown of Miss Galaxy Aus­tralia.

Af­ter four days of photo shoots and mod­el­ling on the Gold Coast, the Burswood res­i­dent was named the win­ner on April 1 and will now com­pete on the in­ter­na­tional stage.

Ms Naz­zari said she was in shock when she was named the win­ner af­ter com­pet­ing in the event for a third time.

“Last year’s win­ner tried to sash and crown me but she was strug­gling be­cause I was shak­ing so much,” she said.

“I can barely re­mem­ber the mo­ment, there was so much go­ing on.

“I was stand­ing up there with the sec­ond run­ner-up who I had be­come friends with be­cause we were room-mates dur­ing the week.

“I’m proud to be Miss Galaxy Aus­tralia and of the out­come of the com­pe­ti­tion.”

Ms Naz­zari said she would travel and pre­pare ahead of the 2017 Galaxy In­ter­na­tional Pageant in Florida in July.

“It will be a sim­i­lar process to the lead-up to the na­tion­als; I will make ap­pear­ances and do some char­ity work,” she said.

“There is an op­por­tu­nity to do some in­ter­na­tional travel and I’ll be head­ing to the UK.”

Elise Naz­zari is crowned Miss Galaxy Aus­tralia by last year’s win­ner Shikye Smith.
