Half a world away from Gina Elise in California, Elise Nazzari makes headlines right here in Perth!
Quite apart from being a total stunner, Elise is going hard at the books. She’s working on a degree that combines sociology and anthropology. Having read some Robert Ardrey I could probably sustain a conversation with Elise for all of – hmm, maybe thirty seconds.
It was Elise’s mind, strangely enough, that set her on the path to her crown:
Nazzari turned to beauty pageants as a way to heal her self-confidence after battling anxiety and depression, and three attempts later she won the title at the national final on the Gold Coast this month…“I think I represent what it is to be a modern beauty queen,” Nazzari said. “Growing up, I was quite intelligent and I was bullied for that.”
Today, safe bet the bullies are dying of envy all over. Sucks to be them.
