Brieanne Haafkens is a Queensland based cooking teacher for special needs students and also assists with the running of her family's bakery business.
She has a love for educating children on the importance of good food and is starting a charity called "Waste for Purpose" to help put food on the tables of those in need. Brieanne has already started making positive change through her own family business and is now helping other businesses and community members to do the same.
Brieanne has completed her Certificate II and III in Health Support Services and Certificate III in Health Services Australia and will be continuing her studies in Health Care, undertaking a Bachelors of Nursing in the near future.
After experiencing bullying throughout her schooling, struggling with body image issues and feeling as though she didn’t belong, Brieanne’s mission as Miss Galaxy Australia 2020 is to be a role model to younger girls and a voice for those that need it. Brieanne wants to share her experiences and hopes to inspire others to speak up and to love themselves as they are.
Her quote “Be bold, be beautiful, be you” has been her inspiration.
