Now, the 13-year-old from Duncraig is off to Florida to represent Australia in the Miss Teen International competition.
Georgia said she was due to start modelling at Chadwick Models after a trip to Bali.
“We were eating at a restaurant and I saw her (Gale) sitting across from us so I went and said hello as she was one of my modelling inspirations and I was very excited to start modelling after my holiday,” she said.
“She said she wished me the best of luck and was very happy for me.”
Georgia said she soon found a love for taking photos and being in front of the camera.
“I love wearing different clothes and trying different styles and not to mention the confidence you receive from the training and performances,” she said.
She entered the international modelling competition last year because she “really loved the fundraising part of the pageant”.
“I was extremely enthusiastic about fundraising for beyondblue,” she said.
“I entered to raise awareness and to gain experience.”
As well as fundraising throughout the year, Georgia had to take part in an interview with the judges and had to model fitness, cocktail and evening wear at the only national final held in Sydney.
“I felt absolutely stunned when I won,” she said.
“I was shell-shocked and extremely grateful for the opportunity to represent Australia in Florida.”
Georgia, who now holds the title of Miss Teen Australia International, will compete for the overall crown in July against 70 other models representing each state of the US and selected countries.
“I am feeling very excited and thrilled for the trip, as I get to make my home country proud and have the opportunity of a lifetime,” she said.
“I would love to make a career out of modelling and pageantry because it is one of the many things I love to do in life; to raise awareness and to model.”
