OUR MISS WORLD HOPEFUL

Beauty entrant hopes
contest will open doors
By day she s a public servant, but Kate
Goodwin has her sights set on world domination
as the ACT representative in the upcoming Miss
World Australia national competition.
The 20-year-old from Forde has been
modelling for a number of years, with a keen
interest in fashion and ambassador roles.
In 2013 she was named Myer Face of
Canberra Racing and she said this was a good
platform to pursue a role like Miss World -- a
competition which really appealed to her.
"It was just a competition that really struck
my fancy -- it just wasn t purely based on looks,"
"It wasn t just about how you walk or how
you look -- it s a bit more meaningful and it
opens up a lot more doors that I m interested in
in the long run."
While Goodwin said she s extremely nervous
ahead of the finals, she s looking forward to
flying the flag for the ACT and is excited about
where the competition could take her.
"Winning would just be life changing," she
said. "I have a passion portraying a really
healthy image to other people -- there are so
many people in the spotlight who are portrayed
so badly, so you really strive to be a good role
The finals will be held in the Hunter Valley
from July 24-28, where contestants from around
the country will compete.
The competition has a strong fund-raising
aspect to it, and all contestants have to fund-
raise for Variety -- The Children s Charity.
As part of her efforts to raise funds,
Goodwin is holding a shopping
extravaganza event on July 18 at the
Hellenic Club at Woden from 6-9.30pm,
featuring local businesses, live
entertainment, raffles and door prizes.
Tickets are available at the door and are $15
adults, $5 teens, free for under 12s.
