For as long as she can remember, Gold Coast’s Caitlynn Henry has wanted to work with and bring out the best in children with disabilities and special needs.

At just 18, the second year occupational therapy student at Griffith University is combining her studies with pageantry and is a step closer to reaching her goals after being announced a Queensland finalist in this year’s Miss Teen Galaxy Australia pageant.

Caitlynn, who is one of six Queensland finalists, will join other young women from around Australia at the national Miss Teen Galaxy pageant on Saturday 16 April, at the Gold Coast Arts Centre: the overall winner will represent Australia at Miss Teen Galaxy’s world pageant in Florida, USA in August.

No novice to modelling, Caitlynn has graced catwalks since the age of eight and has also appeared in popular glossy teenage magazines, Dolly and Girlfriend. This is her second year of competing in the pageant.

As part of the state finalist selections, entrants were also required to raise funds for Teen Galaxy’s official charities, Make-A-Wish Australia and Wildlife Warriors – both of which are dear to her heart. 

When asked why she decided to enter Miss Teen Galaxy for the second time, Caitlynn said: “The pageant’s core values were in line with my own, with its mission being to provide the motivation and tools for woman to become the best possible version of themselves, to become role models to their peers, their family and their community. I have a passion for children and working with make a wish is a dream come true, just providing some light in a difficult time.”

“Having modelled for the past eleven years, I felt it was time to do something with a purpose and my passion to work with children, especially those with special needs and illnesses was the deciding factor to enter this year’s pageant,” Caitlynn said.

She has always dreamed of becoming a model and using her name to raise awareness for children with disabilities and Miss Teen Galaxy is perfectly aligned with Cailtlynn’s goals.

Being Caitlynn’s sponsor ULTIQA Resorts, we are proud of all Caitlynn has a achieved with fundraising over $4000 already for Make-A-Wish Australia and $200 for Wildlife Warriors.

Caitlynn would be honoured to win the national title next weekend but no matter what, she appreciates the opportunity to be able to make it to this level of the competition. In addition, the charities will benefit gratefully from the hard work put in to raise some great funds.

The Australia Galaxy Pageant will be staged at the Gold Coast Arts Centre on Saturday evening, March 16. For further information, visit, www.australiagalaxypagenats.com.
