Yet I can’t image my life without horseback riding because I’ve been doing it since I was 3 years old. Every other weekend, I travel to rural Sydney to practise and compete with teams from throughout New South Wales or the rest of Australia, she stated at the time.

Weir was One of the Finalists in the 2022 Australian Miss Universe
Weir won the Miss Universe Australia competition last year, catapulting her to fame. She said, “I would have to say being open to chances, sociability, determination, being multi-faceted as an individual, and having integrity,” when asked on stage what the necessary traits were to win the title.
“Although it is crucial to stand up for what you believe in and what you love, it is also crucial to push yourself to try new things and get to know yourself completely because you never know what chance may present itself. I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t done it. Weir threw in.
Also, the model held two degrees in English literature. She had intended to go to the UK before her injury in order to hunt for additional employment options and spend more time with her family.
