Sophie's Beautiful Act

Written on the 11 April 2017

Miss World Australia national finalist Sophie Ludbrook isn't your average pageant queen.

Currently on a gap year after Year 12, the aspiring doctor and part-time model who lives on the family farm in the Adelaide Hills decided to try her hand at the event for the first time, but only after researching the beauty pageant's credentials.

"It was uncharted waters for me, but I think ultimately it's for a good cause. It's got extremely sound morals behind it... I checked to make sure it wasn't supported by Donald Trump," said Ms Ludbrook, 18, who's also a top junior equestrian showjumper.

"I like the fact it's a pageant which is built on the intellect of women and having ambition and interest in others. And getting to wear a pretty dress is a bit of a bonus."

The youngest SA entrant in the competition, Ms Ludbrook, of Mylor, secured her spot in July's national final, and is now busy raising funds for the event's charity, Variety SA, which supports children and their families in need. This includes young Samuel Lugg, 7, from Morphett Vale, who has autism and cerebral palsy.

"Sam is really great. It's really important to me to get personally involved, to actually meet people and actually help them in any way that I can," the former Scotch College student said.

Ms Ludbrook hosted a special movie screening at Trak Cinema, which will be the first of several fundraising events for Variety SA. The eloquent teenager, who doesn't mind getting her hands dirty on the farm, is taking 2017 off study to travel (after the national final), and is hoping to study medicine next year.

"Hopefully I can get in... I consider myself pretty ambitious. I definitely want to use my education to help others," the Powell Model said.
