My experience with ASOTY started at the end of 2018. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and sign up for ASOTY not knowing that this competition changed my life forever. Being selected as the top 20 in Australia I felt nothing but joy. I was beyond exciting to be flown to Bali to show the world what I had. Meeting new people from all around Australia made my trip the best I have ever been on. People who were genuine people who cared and honestly just making friendships of a life time. Finding out on grand finale day I was the teen winner quite possibly made me the happiest girl ever. I have never felt so much happiness in my life. To be crowned the winner meant it was a step up on the industry and all I wanted to was to make my family and friends proud and I did that by even making into the top 20. I’m so incredibly thankful for all that were involved and to all that have made me who I am today. ASOTY has gained my confidence so much and I couldn’t be more thankful. I’m very excited to see what ASOTY 2020 brings. I can’t wait to meet everybody and share bonds with people. I wish everybody luck and I can’t wait to see you all shine bright!
