Today I was published in the Mosman daily and the telegraph online. Thank you to Mosman daily especially as they always promote local people in the community. I always enjoy having a cup of tea and reading the local news myself. Below is the Mosman daily article:

BEING married and a mum doesn't rule you out of beauty pageants, as Kate Branch of Cammeray has discovered.
She has been crowned Mrs Australia Globe and in October will fly to China to compete for the world title of Mrs Globe.
The pageant is open to women aged over 26 or who are married or have children. Mrs Branch, 32, married with a young daughter, ticks all three boxes.
Competitors are judged on personality, national costume, evening wear and swimwear.
"I will admit there are a few butterflies in regards to the swimwear, but now is the time to harness all those tips and tricks on posing that I have learnt from being a photographer," Mrs Branch said.
"And who doesn't want to know how to stand when you wear a bikini at 32 years of age in front of an international audience!"
Mrs Branch said she decided to enter after photographing a former Miss Australia World.
However, she said she wasn't focused on winning the world crown.
"I think anyone who enters a competition solely to win does rob themselves of an amazing experience," she said. "I am very excited about visiting China and meeting many women from all around the globe."
