Enjoy a world of opportunity
WATCHING her 20-year-old daughter compete at Miss World Australia last year brought back fond pageantry memories for Dalkeith resident Margy Hegney Hall.
In her first year as WA pageant co-ordinator and event manager, Ms Hegney Hall said she was looking forward to meeting the amazing local women competing for the Miss World crown.
“We have always had very strong contenders from WA,” she said.
“There is just something about Australian girls; they are very natural, fresh, confident and approachable.
“The most important thing about Miss World is that it is not just about the visual of the girl, it is all her many different qualities.
“In fact, this year they have removed the swimwear category for a focus on health and fitness.
“That is a very powerful and current move.”
Ms Hegney Hall said it was amazing to see the women grow and transform throughout the competition.
“When my daughter Rahdee first joined, she was so quiet, but she absolutely blossomed,” Ms Hegney Hall said.
“We try to expose the girls to as many different things and introduce them to a myriad of different people.
“What is wonderful is they actually become and remain very tight friends.”
Miss World Australia has many events planned for 2015, with local business partners and charity Variety WA.
