Model extends offer to promote Geraldton businesses
A former Geraldton resident who models between swings as a fly-in, fly-out mine worker is offering to promote local businesses as she competes for the Miss Multiverse Australia crown.
At 29, Brooke Jade has been an office manager and executive assistant for the mining and construction industries for more than a decade in Geraldton, Perth and Sydney.
She is one of this year’s NSW regional finalists.
Miss Jade said the competition aimed to “celebrate the multi-faceted woman” with an emphasis on entrepreneurship.
“One of our challenges is to align with businesses,” she said.
“You put together a business plan on how you will help them and how they will help you.
“If there are businesses that are looking to get into the market on the east coast or gain visibility over there, I would love to support business from my home town.”
Miss Jade said contestants needed an intricate knowledge of their sponsors so they could talk about them during interviews and at events, and sponsors’ logos would appear on all of her promotional material.
If she becomes Miss Multiverse Australia, the logos would then feature in the international reality TV show I Am Multiverse as she competed with other national finalists.
Miss Jade said the show was a reality series similar to the US NBC network’s Celebrity Apprentice.
“It’s not called a beauty pageant, it is a modelling and personality competition,” she said.
“While it is called ‘Miss…’ it doesn’t have the strict rules like Miss Universe, where you can’t have been married or you can’t be engaged.
“It’s physical endurance, they do sporting challenges, they do social challenges, they are watched on their networking, they have to host events and run events and they are given teamwork challenges.”
Miss Jade said she would be using the competition as an opportunity to push her favourite cause.
“It’s empowering women to get into the mining and the FIFO industry,” she said.
“While I have something to say, without a platform it’s not going to get out there.
“Miss Multiverse will build a platform for me.”
Miss Jade can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org.
