YANGEBUP’S Michelle Dolan is the 2019 Mrs Galaxy Australia.
The 28-year-old drag racing enthusiast swapped the Perth Motorplex track for the catwalk last month when she was one of 10 finalists named in the Mrs Galaxy Australia competition.
The mother of three said she had been “extremely nervous” before the pageant but that she was in “utter shock” when her name was called out.
“I never let myself think that I had it in the bag, I was just grateful for the experience and to be there,” she said.
“The other girls in my section where all amazing and I knew it was going to be close.
“The look on my face in photos will show how shocked I was when I was called the winner.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity though, not only have I won the Mrs Galaxy Australia title, I gained friends for life and I’ll be forever grateful for that.”
Ms Dolan will now travel to Florida in August to represent Australia in the 2019 Galaxy International Pageant.She said she hoped she could use her new title to make a difference.
“I love to do charity work and help out where I can, and having the title makes it more accessible,” she said.
“I hope I can inspire other women to step out of their comfort zones and try something different.”
