Lo­cal model to en­ter Miss Uni­verse pageant

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

LIFE-LONG Whit­sun­day lo­cal Court­ney Carmichael will be com­pet­ing at this year’s Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia pageant and will be putting her best foot for­ward on the cat­walk for the Queens­land pre­lim­i­nary heats on the Gold Coast this Satur­day.

Ms Carmichael first en­tered the Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia pageant two years ago and was a Queens­land fi­nal­ist in the com­pe­ti­tion.

The 21-year-old is com­plet­ing a dual de­gree in busi­ness and law by cor­re­spon­dence at the Cen­tral Queens­land Univer­sity and re­cently joined the team at PRD­na­tion­wide Whit­sun­day as a sales con­sul­tant.

She de­cided to en­ter the Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia pageant three weeks ago and is look­ing for­ward to pro­mot­ing the body im­age of a healthy young woman.

“I want to pro­mote a health­ier body im­age than when I first en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion be­cause it is im­por­tant for girl’s to un­der­stand that their body will change as they get older and they should feel com­fort­able with that and love the body they have,” she said.

All Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia con­tes­tants will be as­sessed by a panel of three judges at the Queens­land pre­lim­i­nary heats which will be held at the Golf Coast Turf Club this Satur­day.

Con­tes­tants will be judged on cock­tail wear and in­tro­duc­tion, a swimwear cat­walk chal­lenge and evening­wear which will be fol­lowed by a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion on cur­rent state and na­tional af­fairs.

Ms Carmichael will be up against some of the most beau­ti­ful young women from across the state, who are all hop­ing to fol­low in the foot­steps of Queens­land’s Erin McNaught, Rachael Finch, Jesinta Camp­bell and Jennifer Hawkins.

The state fi­nal will be held at the Ho­tel Grand Chan­cel­lor in Surfers Par­adise on the Gold Coast on April 9.
