I'm in grade 3 and love being with my friends. I have a little brother, a dog and a rabbit. I love competing in dance competitions and doing photo shoots with modelling. World Class Princess Magazine: What does women Empowerment means to you? Becoming stronger and more confident in everything I do. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history. My first pageant was Miss Summer girl and I never placed, I became addicted and competed in Mini Miss Tasmania, where i was chosen to represent Tasmania in the Miss of Australia Pageant. After coming 3rd runner up, I trained hard to win the next 3 pageants I competed in. World Class Princess Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant? My mum found a flyer and asked if I was interested, we looked at photos and I loved the pretty dresses and crowns. The girls all looked beautiful. World Class Princess Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title? A large group from Tasmania was heading over to compete, I thought it would be fun to train and go along with a group of friends that would all support each other no matter the outcome. World Class Princess Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about? Miss and Mr Diamond Australia is a pageant where everyone is accepted. They allow us to choose a charity to raise awareness and funds for. World Class Princess Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition? You can earn points leading up to the pageant based on your fundraising and appearances. They also have a charity speech round, Interview, Formal wear and Fun fashion. Its a whole package, not just what happens on the night but also leading up to the pageant. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition. I had so much fun getting out and about in my sash, people would always stop and ask about it. I took pageant classes with the other contestants going and we all became a really close family. I made so many new friends. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about your platform or what cause do you volunteer for. We were allowed to choose any charity we wanted, I chose The Ten Lives Cat Centre, which is the largest dedicated cat shelter in Tasmania. I don't have a cat but I love them so much that I wanted to help raise money so they can go to good homes. World Class Princess Magazine: What appearances have you done with your title? I have been back to the Cat Centre to help out on their Clear the shelter day and I donated to the Give me 5 for kids wheelie bin walk with our local radio station. I'm looking forward to more events in the summer. World Class Princess Magazine: What are some of your achievements? I was honored to be nominated for the Breakout Star of the Year award last year at the Australian Beauty Pageant Awards. Even though I didn't win, it was an amazing experience to be in the room with so many queens. World Class Princess Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? I like to stare them down, but mostly just have fun, an honest smile looks better than a fake smile. World Class Princess Magazine: What makes you stand out from all those other beautiful girls? I would say my long red hair, its the first thing anyone notices, and my genuine smile. World Class Princess Magazine: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. I was shocked as I didn't expect to win or even place close to winning. They called out second place and it took me a few moment to realise I had just won. I could hear everyone screaming, I was so happy. World Class Princess Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? I want to inspire younger kids to go give new things a go, I worked hard for this title and even though I have a nice tiara and sash I'm still the same Montana. World Class Princess Magazine: How did competing in pageants helped your life? I have a new confidence that I can do anything. I'm not afraid to put my hand up in class or speak in front of the whole school. World Class Princess Magazine: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? I have learned that everyone is beautiful no matter what. I have red hair and freckles which makes me different but that's OK. I'm not going to pretend to be someone I'm not. World Class Princess Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? It feels really good. I want every girl to know they can do anything and be anything they want. I wanted to be a princess and my dreams came true. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? Practice Practice Practice. Find a good coach, and if you don't feel confident just keep practicing until you do. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? Look for something that suits you. Pick a colour that you like and feel confident in, but be careful it doesn't wash you out. Make sure it fits to perfection, it mustn't be too long or too big. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview? I'm actually not very confident with the interview round, I would say just practice doing interview questions with anyone that's keen to help. World Class Princess Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition? I went to pageant classes, and practiced in my outfits and heels at home. World Class Princess Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? I'm happy with everything I have done, I cant pin point any one mistake. No one is perfect. World Class Princess Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? I think the biggest mistake is not believing they can. Confidence goes a long way. World Class Princess Magazine: Any modeling or acting experience? I have been modelling for GCP models for a year now. I love learning about photo shoots and fashion. World Class Princess Magazine: What are your plans for 2019 as a Queen? To get out and about in the community and encourage others to have a go at something new. Believe in yourself and your dreams. And I am hoping to raise more awareness for the Ten Lives Cat Centre. World Class Princess Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to be known as the girl who gave it a go and succeeded. Someone who is always happy and ready to help others.
