DEVONPORT'S Ainsley Koch has a dream and she is already half way to achieving it.
The 18-year-old brunette beauty wants to be a model and will on Tuesday vie for a contract to do just that in the national Miss Country Girl Australia finals in Sydney.
The winner of the country- wide competition, aimed at transforming girls from country towns to superstars, will be awarded a contract with Chic Management and a personal modelling portfolio.
And Miss Koch is confident about the competition after winning the state finals last September.
"Hopefully I'll go well and I'd love to win it," she said.
" But I don't know, there are so many other gorgeous contestants going in it, but it would be great."
About 20 girls from across Australia will vie for the national title by strutting down a catwalk at Double Bay in casual and formal wear.
Miss Koch will also be interviewed by Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr's former agency Chic Management during her stay in Sydney.
"So hopefully even if I don't win it, I will still be able to get a contact anyway," Miss Koch said.
Miss Koch started modelling when she was 11 and for the past few years has modelled with En Vogue Modelling Academy, in Burnie.
Miss Koch said she started modelling for fun, but later thought she could make a career out of it.
Since graduating college last year, Miss Koch has been accepted to study journalism at La Trobe University in Melbourne but has deferred until next semester.
The national Miss Country Girl Australia final will be held at Pink Salt Lounge bar in Double Bay, Sydney.
