En­joy a world of op­por­tu­nity

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion - By ROSANNA CANDLER

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.
