2017年澳洲小姐Olivia Roger­s摘下桂冠,親手為2018年的佳麗戴上這份榮耀,祝福她在未來一年中,能以成為「澳洲小姐」而自豪:「做最真實的自己,敞開心胸,把握每一個難得的機會,盡情享受這段彈指即逝的特殊時光。」她說道。

As the 2017 Miss Aus­tralia Olivia Rogers hands over the reign to Francesca Hung, Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia for 2018, it marks the end of a life-chang­ing jour­ney. Olivia hopes that Ms Hung will en­joy the same pride and glory. “Stay true to your­self, be open-minded, and take ev­ery op­por­tu­nity as it comes, but most of all, en­joy each mo­ment of this pre­cious time be­cause it goes so quickly,” are her wise words of ad­vice to her suc­ces­sor.

「澳洲小姐」是環球小姐的澳洲選拔賽事,展現了美麗女人背後的深層涵 義。Oliver Rogers 是一位語言治療師,熱愛繪畫,對自己充滿自信。擔任「澳洲小姐」的一年中,她為存在精神問題的弱勢群體發聲,並將自己對生活的自信與樂觀推向社會,「不要與他人比較,每一個人都是獨特且美麗的,每一個人擁有不同的外表,盲目的比較只是讓自己覺得不滿意,卻無法從中獲益。」

Olivia 笑道這樣的機會讓她更了解自己,「我完成了每一件『澳洲小姐』任內我希望完成的。公眾視野期望『澳洲小姐』能成為澳洲年輕人的榜樣:自信且勇於表達對事物的觀點,為弱勢團體而發聲。」

「澳洲小姐」是兼具榮耀和使命的頭銜,也是澳洲年輕女性的代表。26 歲的 Olivi­a曾為了慈善團體募款而騎了 845公里的單車,代表澳洲到不同國家參與活動….「這個經驗改變了我的人生,但這個角色並沒有改變我的人生意義,卻讓我更加積極的追求想要的生活,把握每一次的機會,卻不將機會視為理所當然。」

Each year, the win­ner of Miss Aus­tralia goes on to rep­re­sent Aus­tralia in the in­ter­na­tional Miss Uni­verse pageant, a com­pe­ti­tion show­cas­ing the beauty, power and strength of women. A speech pathol­o­gist and pas­sion­ate artist, Olivia is an in­di­vid­ual of un­shak­able con­fi­dence. Dur­ing her year as Miss Aus­tralia, she be­came a voice for those suf­fer­ing from men­tal health is­sues, util­is­ing her de­ter­mined and op­ti­mistic out­look on life as a con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety. “Never com­pare your­self with other peo­ple. Ev­ery­one is beau­ti­ful in their own unique way, and com­par­ing will only leave you trapped in a lack of self-con­fi­dence and dis­ap­point­ment.”

Olivia laughs when she says that this op­por­tu­nity has helped her learn a lot about her­self. “I’ve ac­com­plished ev­ery goal that I set for my­self as Miss Aus­tralia. The pub­lic ex­pec­ta­tion of Miss Aus­tralia now is that she will be a role model for our younger gen­er­a­tion, in­spir­ing peo­ple to have con­fi­dence in ex­press­ing their thoughts and opin­ions, and to be­come a voice for those who don’t have one.”

不要與他人比較,每一個人都是獨特且美麗的

Ev­ery­one is beau­ti­ful in their own unique way.

Miss Aus­tralia cel­e­brates beauty while serv­ing a greater pur­pose: to em­power and en­cour­age women in em­brac­ing their dif­fer­ences. 26 year old Olivia tri­umphed at an 845 km char­ity bike ride and rep­re­sented Aus­tralia in mul­ti­ple in­ter­na­tional events. “While the ex­pe­ri­ence has been life-chang­ing, the role has not im­pacted on my per­cep­tion of life. In­stead, I am more en­cour­aged to con­tinue liv­ing my life and mak­ing the most of ev­ery op­por­tu­nity and most im­por­tantly, to never take any­thing for granted.”

“It might be farewell but it’s not the end,” said Olivia. “This in­cred­i­ble jour­ney has left me with mem­o­ries and ex­pe­ri­ences that will last a life­time. I will be for­ever grate­ful, I will con­tinue ad­vo­cat­ing for men­tal health and I hope that I can con­tinue to in­spire young women. I also want to keep mak­ing my fam­ily proud of me.”

「卸下了桂冠,不代表結束」, Olivi­a表示,帶著這段富有極深意義的經歷,她將走到人生的下一步,「內心有些感慨,感謝『澳洲小姐』這個頭銜讓我擁有不同的技能,除了帶給我不可思議的旅程外,更為我開啟不同領域之門,我會繼續為弱勢群體發聲,做最真實的自我,更讓家人以我為榮。」
