Miss Galaxy Australia
After six years in pageantry and three attempts at the Galaxy Title, Emily Egan was proudly crowned Miss Galaxy Australia 2022! Emily is extremely proud to be taking home Canberra’s first ever Galaxy title, understanding the wonderful opportunity this brings to her home state.
Emily is a Canberra based Model, Presenter and Communications Advisor. She graduated from the University of Canberra with her Bachelor of Communications in Media and Public Affairs which has prompted a wonderful career in Media.
Emily is also the Cancer Council ACTs sun smart Ambassador for young people for 2022. She plans to use her year of reign as a platform for the Cancer Council ACT, with a goal of raising $10,000 for the organisation throughout her year of reign!
Emily is a proud ACT community advocate, having volunteered for over 40 community organisations in her home state. She believes in the power of individuals and wants to inspire others to “create a ripple effect”, one small act can make big change in your community.
Emily’s mission as Miss Galaxy Australia is encourage participation from others to get involved in their own local community, step out of their comfort zone and of course, a little dose of self-love. Emily says “I hope I can encourage others to understand it is not about how much you have, but about how much you can give. One small act of kindness, volunteering or donating can make a really big impact in someone else’s life. I want to inspire young women throughout my reign to have confidence, find purpose through giving back to their community and to be grateful for life’s wonderful gifts. I ended up winning Miss Galaxy after three attempts which I hope can serve as an example for young women to never give up on their dreams- smash those glass ceilings sister!
