‘Can do’ attitude is harbinger of success
Model of the Fortnight Brooke Teura
Helping and encouraging other young women to gain confidence has always been on the bucket list of Brookes Teura, our Model of the Fortnight.
Brooke is from Auckland South and always held the view that, if she can gain higher confidence, then she can share it with others.
She joined the ‘Miss Five Crowns New Zealand Pageant’ to gain a higher level of confidence and to set an example to other aspirants.
She said, “If I can do it, other young women can do it too.”
An event with a difference
Brooke particularly liked what Miss Five Crowns New Zealand was about. It was different to other competitions of its kind and most of all she really liked, that the pageant platform did not have criteria for young women who considered joining the pageant.
It was open to all young women that walked through the door without judgement.
As Brooke looks back on where she was last year and where she is today, she said that she has come a long way.
“The support received from many new friends that I earned on this pageant journey and the people who supported me has been nothing short of amazing. A successful combination has contributed to shape me into the person I have become,” she said.
In five years’ time Brooke’s goal is to be the owner or part-owner of her own successful business. She hopes to travel all over the world and help people on her way around the globe.
“I believe that it can happen and I know that the platform of Miss Five Crowns has given help and taught many skills to allow me to conquer my dreams,” Brooke said.
