One of our amazing students, Jessica Rixon, has been wowing the rural community and Brisbane alike as she struts her stuff in the Queensland Country Life Miss Showgirl competition. The Miss Showgirl competition provides young women with amazing opportunities to gain personal development, learn life-long skills and to pursue leadership roles in the community and the workplace!
The competition has made a significant contribution to the advancement of women in regional and rural areas ever since the first Queensland Showgirl was awarded in 1983! Complementing her strive for leadership, Jessica who was recently crowned Callide Valley Miss Showgirl and CQ Miss Showgirl, has been studying her passion with Club Training Australia.
Jessica brings her passion for all things food with her as she studies, and has been a Commercial Cookery Apprentice for over 12 months at the Hotel Settlers in Biloela. We are extremely proud of the amazing commitment she shows in everything she does, from her studies to her community involvement through Miss Showgirls, she is winner all around to us!
Our Chef training Christopher Cave has nothing but high praise for the up and coming chef, saying she is committed, detail oriented and charismatic student.
‘Jessica is just wonderful. She is funny, enthusiastic and charismatic and it is no surprise to me that she has been winning her way through the Miss Showgirl events. She is a country girl at heart and I can see a great future for her!”
2017 celebrates 35 years for the Miss Showgirl Awards, culminating in the announcement of the Queensland Country Life Showgirl event held at the Brisbane Ekka recently. While Jessica did not win out on the day, she is an absolute winner in our eyes.
Congratulations Jessica, we are looking forward to seeing you achieve your goals of becoming a head chef and one day opening your own restaurant! We wish you every success!
