I've dreamt of going to Australia since I was about 8 years old, and I can't believe I was actually able to do it. In the best way possible, competing in Australia's first international pageant. Those two weeks were truly an experience of a lifetime. Visiting places that took my breath away like the Sydney Opera House (you can ask any contestant,every time I saw or heard about it I would scream), La Perouse golf course, under the harbor bridge, Sydney Olympic Park, and so much more. Although it was Winter over there during my summer break, I'm so glad I was able to wear Consumers Against Toxic Apparel during my time in Australia!
After a 21 hour flight to Sydney, Australia, I was so happy I could wear Consumers Against Toxic Apparel affiliate Imagine Greenwear by the Sydney Opera House. The dress is so comfortable to wear throughout a long plane ride, and the long sleeves kept me warm in Australia winter, but still stylish!
We had two weeks of photoshoots and glamorous events, so the perfect CATA thing for me to wear was CATA affiliate Silver Needle & Thread gown with jewelry pieces by https://www.facebook.com/CreativeJewelryDesignsbyLauraStaley" target="_blank">Creative Jewelry Designs by Laura Staley. A one of a kind sustainable gown of its own, made with certified organic cotton lining, natural silk outer lining, recycled copper wire, and repurposed stones!
I was able to visit the Sydney Opera House while under the Harbor Bridge, it is breathtaking in the evening! While wearing my CATA affiliate Silver Needle & Thread.
It's so crazy to think I was able to be on live TV while I was in Sydney, Australia, in an interview with YBF Cosmetics. TVSN is aired in 33 million homes in Australia and New Zealand. I was talking about Teens Go Green and how I was wearing my organic sponsor, CATA affiliate Silver Needle & Thread.
To end my journey in Australia, I was able to place 3rd Runner Up internationally and win Miss Personality! I was so grateful to compete with such an accomplished and astounding group of contestants. I was so happy to celebrate in my signature red CATA masterpiece!
Coming back home was hard to adjust to reality, but I find the memories and pictures will last forever!
