Maya is the first finalist in Nova’s Miss Univers-ity competition.
Next week she’ll find out if she’s won the $25,000+ in prizes including $10,000 cash, laptop, $5,000 off her HECS debt, a $2,000 travel voucher, $1,000 shopping voucher and a whole lot more.
Every day for the rest of the week, Hughesy and Kate will be choosing more finalists, based on their entries at novafm.com.au which includes two photos (a ‘hangover’ pic and a ‘hot’ pic) and answers to five questions.
Maya is 19 and is in her second year of studying Psychology and Occupational Therapy at LaTrobe.
Hughesy told Maya this morning that her stance on young people using drugs helped get her “over the line”.
“I think the biggest issue in society at the moment is adolescents and their drug abuse,” Maya wrote in her entry. “A majority of the people I know have been on, taken or are still taking drugs and a few have let it take over their lives. I’ve lost contact with best friends because they chose drugs.”
Ed told Maya she needs to pamper up and pointed out that there was a year’s worth of waxing from Brazillian Butterfly as part of the prize. Hughesy told Maya that Ed was weird.
