With a thought process seemingly wise beyond her years, Shannon told News Of The Area, “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”

Shannon was selected as a National Finalist for the competition, which recognises that everyone has the right to be their own kind of beautiful.

The pageant has a wide variety of entrants from various cultures, encouraging entrants to seize the opportunity given to them to learn about cultures other than their own, make new friends and try new challenges with girls from all over Australia.

Unlike most other pageants, the Australian Continents Pageant system honors inner beauty, with no no height, weight or age restrictions set for entrance into the Pageant.

The Continents Pageant motto is “Be your own kind of beautiful.”

With the pageant coming up in only a few weeks, Shannon is busy preparing herself to take the stage with the hopes of taking out her division title.

Shannon will compete in various stages of judging including personal interview and onstage evening gown, fashion wear and swimwear rounds.

There is also the option to compete in Charity rounds and Appearance rounds to claim bonus points.

The top five from each division will then progress forward to an on stage question portion of competition.

If Shannon is crowned as the division winner, she will then fly to the United States next year to compete in the International Continents Pageant final, as well as take home an amazing array of prizes.

Shannon said her mission through this journey is to “become more confident within myself”.

With the world at her feet, we can expect to see some big things from Shannon.
