Western Australia beauty Scherri-Lee Biggs was a clear crowd favourite at the Miss Universe Australia final and the masses got it right.
Scherri-Lee was born in a little holiday town in Durban South Africa called Balitto Bay.
She grew up on a small farm with 5 dogs, 6 cats, a horse, 2 peacocks, 52 ducks and a gaggle of geese and moved to Australia when I was 8 years old to Watermans Bay Perth.
In Perth Scherri-Lee went to an all girls school, St Marys AGS, “I’m one of those weird people that actually enjoyed the experience of school. I was involved in the dance drama side of things and danced as a ballerina for a youth company until I was 15”.
“Being a girl that danced, went to an all girls school and grew up with 2 sisters, you think I’d be super girly and feel pretty sorry for my dad. But having all girls my dad decided to equip us with the skills of a son. So we had quad bikes, surfboards, car knowledge and know how to camp like bear-grylls.”
Scherri-Lee also has a passion for cooking and “absolutely loves to cook up a storm (not the neatest cook either) and funnily enough, a skill I picked up in school, cake decorating. I also enjoy to paint, especially when I’m feeling stressed or a little flat.”
Since the crowning ceremony on Thursday 7th July, Scherri-Lee has a lot on her plate with her preparation for the international final and focusing also on her new ambassadorship work with Nude By Nature Mineral Makeup and Novo Shoes, and the Miss Universe Australia’s continuous charity support.
There is a lot lying in the future for this 20 year old, who is midway through a communications degree majoring in Public Relations and Journalism, and is soon headed for Sao Paulo Brazil to represent Australia on September 12th at Donald Trump’s international Miss Universe final.
Australia will definitely be watching her throughout this new journey.
