Elisha to shine on national stage
Byron Bay-raised beauty, Elisha Yarrington, 23, is a finalist in Miss Universe Australia 2010.
Elisha will go up against 30 others in the national event after winning the State finals in Sydney.
She said her entry in the Miss Universe quest started as a bit of fun.
“But I’m very excited to have made it this far, and now I’ve got my eye on the prize. It’s such a great platform for young women like me to voice their opinions about certain issues,” she said.
“It is also an amazing opportunity to launch a great career, meet incredible people and travel the world.”
Elisha said she had met some ‘gorgeous girls’ in her journey, ‘down-to-earth, genuine and beautiful in their individual way’.
Her mother, Sharon, said Elisha was also ‘beautiful on the inside, and that quality shines through’.
She said her daughter had been a typical Byron Bay girl, taking success in her stride.
The Trinity graduate lives at Cronulla in Sydney and is studying for a bachelor degree in communications.
The Miss Universe Australia national finals are on June 17.
