Calls it a win for multiculturalism too
Local pageant queen Rana Yawary was crowned Ms Australia International 2017 at the Australian International Pageant held in Parramatta, NSW, on 4 November.
With a mission to ‘make a difference’, Ms International not only promotes the accomplishments of today’s women, but also their dedication to their communities and chosen charities. Areas of competition include Interview, Fitness Wear and Evening Gown.
“I am a paediatric dentist and a Rotarian and my parents were migrants. The fact that I could win the Australian title is an incredible testament to integration. Our culture draws on diverse traditions and we are leveling barriers to association and opportunity,” said Rana, and added, “I am eager to use my new title to show the wider community the incredible work that Rotary Australia is doing locally as well as internationally.”
