Miss Teen Galaxy 2016 finalist Brittnee Sheath says she’s hanging up her evening gown for a while to focus her attention on school. Brittnee, 17, goes to Windsor High School and says that as she’ll be studying for her HSC next year, she would like to put her energy into that.

“I’ve loved competing in Miss Teen Galaxy for the past three years – meeting all the other girls, raising money for charity, the community work and promoting the pageant,” she says.

“Competing in pageants takes up a lot of time, but once school is completed my dream is to enter Miss Universe.”

Miss Teen Galaxy Australia is open to teens aged 14-17 and Brittnee says she qualified for the nationals in her first year, won second runner-up in Australia last year, and placed best in evening wear. This year she was awarded first runner-up.

“I’ve always had a passion for modelling and dressing up, so it was so much fun for me,” she says.

In the meantime, Brittnee says she’s turning her attention to modelling.

“It’s always been my dream to be a model, and I actually started modelling when I was four years old,” she says.

“I love being in front of the camera. It’s my dream to become a model full-time one day, I would love it to be my career.”

Brittnee says she has been accepted into a Pacific Fair runway fashion show at the end of the year, and has done castings, TV work, photoshoots and won Model of the Year at Fashion Mandu, a Nepalese fashion show in Sydney.

When she’s not modelling, Brittnee works both at the Pitt Town pharmacy and the local pizza shop.

“They are both lovely places to work and you get to know the people here really well,” she says.

“I’ve always lived in Pitt Town and I love the area.

“My older brothers Jaden and Aaron are keen waterskiers and I like getting out on the river too, waterskiing, wakeboarding or on the boat.

“It’s a lovely small, laid-back town, it’s not jam-packed with shopping centres. It just has what you need.

“It’s a great location and just quiet and peaceful and the community here is fantastic.”
