She believes that the three most important traits a titleholder should possess are pro-activity, dedication and integrity. The titleholder should show initiative in organising fundraising activities and promoting the Miss Grand Australia organisation. The titleholder should also be dedicated to their title, the Miss Grand Australia organisation, the Miss Grand International organisation and Destiny Rescue. Miss Grand Australia should also show integrity. She should have strong moral values and be a positive role model for young women. (Source: Star Central Magazine)
