Miss Liverpool winner Brittany Kenny is a finalist in the 2014 Miss Galaxy Australia Pageant.
Miss Kenny, who's 19 and lives at Voyager Point, will take to the catwalk for the NSW finals on Thursday, February 20.
She wants to show younger girls that they have the chance of following their dreams, provided they don't give up.
"I think it is a big thing to show other girls that, if you don't try or enter, you never really have a chance," she said. "It was something I have always wanted to do and I never thought they would send me a letter saying I have been accepted."
Miss Kenny is studying fitness and physical training at TAFE. She has a strong passion for animal welfare and is raising funds for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors for the pageant.
She loves animals, believes they have their own rights, and says it's wrong that some people don't care about them.
The NSW state finals of Miss Galaxy Australia Pageant will be held at Chatswood on Thursday, February 20.
