The model search competition has launched the careers of Samantha Harris, Abbey Lee Kershaw and Ruby Rose, and Lilli hopes to follow their lead.

The Year 9 Willetton Senior High School student said she entered the competition because she thought it would be an amazing experience.

There were 2000 entrants in the competition this year. ‘So far the experience has been amazing,’ Lilli said.

‘I went to Sydney to take part in a shoot with the other top five girls so I got to meet lots of new people and learn a lot from everybody there.

‘The other girls were all so nice, which made everything easy to handle on such a big day.’

Lilli said she would love to continue modelling in the future, but thought it was important to finish school first.

‘I totally recommend other girls should enter the competition,’ she said.

‘It’s an amazing experience and its fun to enter with your mates.’

The winner will receive a two-year contract with Chic Management, an opportunity to be represented by Next Model Management in one of its six overseas agencies and two fashion shoots for Girlfriend magazine.

The winner will be announced in the October issue of Girlfriend.
