SHELBY Peters has always wanted to reach for the stars in her career.
The former Grafton model, now based on the Gold Coast with Reeder Model Management, is a Queensland finalist in the Miss Galaxy Australia Pageant.
"I had been doing a lot of modelling competitions on the coast, but I thought it was time to move on to something a bit serious," said Miss Peters.
"This competition has already given me great confidence, and opened up a lot of doors in my career."
There is a serious side to the pageant, with Shelby raising money for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
"I've been running fund
raisers on the Coast, and have joined up with the Gold Coast chapter of Make-A-Wish," said Miss Peters.
"But it's a great cause, and to be able to help seriously ill children is such a great feeling."
The competition finals are in April next year, and donations are able to be made at: https://give.everydayhero.com/au/miss-galaxy-finalist-shelby-peters.
