AT ONLY 13 years of age Miraciah Rarasea is set to compete against the best of the best at the South Pacific Regional Finals of the World Supermodel Pageant.

The Cawarral girl is the youngest entrant to enter the pageant after being selected as a wildcard entry by the competition's director of production, Terri Smith.

Terri said competition ages were between 16 and 25 but an exception was made for the young model.

"Most of our delegates have come through as a participant because they have either won one of their local pageants or been in other competitions which secured them a spot in the pageant," she said.

"Miraciah, on the other hand, I have put forward as a wildcard entry as I could see the potential she has and also I am in the process of signing her to MissTez management and thought it would be an amazing experience and learning curve for her…"

Miraciah's step mother, Sheree Rarasea said the pageant was a wonderful opportunity for her to break into the modelling industry while inspiring other young women who wanted to pursue a similar career.

"We will fly out on the 20th and the competition will run from the 21st until the 24th of January," Sheree said.

"The competition will be held at the Pearl South Pacific in Fiji… our big family of seven is very excited for her and we will be travelling with her to support her throughout the four-day comp."

Miraciah who will be competing against 15 other hopefuls at the South Pacific Regional Finals said she was excited at the possibility of representing the South Pacific at the International finals in South Africa.

"I'm really excited about the amazing life experience it will bring to me," she said.
