Docklands’ rising star

Docklands’ rising star Image

Docklander April Goldsby is a rising star in modelling.

At just 19 years old, Ms Goldsby has already been a candidate for Miss Tourism and Miss World Australia and has been featured in an editorial spread in the Elle magazine.

She made the move from hometown Canberra to Docklands a year ago and said she felt incredibly lucky to be waking up to such a view every day.

“Docklands has such a relaxed vibe and it’s like a paradise to me,” she said.

“Everything here feels so different from what I had before. It’s almost glamorous because I get to do something different each day.”

Docklands’ blend of social life, accessibility and environment drew Ms Goldsby here.

“I do think it takes a certain person to live in Docklands. It depends on where you are drawn to and, to me, Docklands is a great place to live,” she said.

Ms Goldsby started modelling from the age of 12 and decided modelling was her dream profession when she was around 15.

She said she jumped at any opportunities that would help with her career, such as the beauty pageant Miss Tourism she contested in November.

Promoting tourism in Australia was always something she felt passionate about.

“I love travelling and I’m always living somewhere new. So running for Miss Tourism was the perfect fit for me,” she said.

“I wanted to get more people to know more about Australia and encourage them to visit here and of course Docklands!”

Ms Goldsby is signed to Melbourne’s Brazen models and is doing shoots for Melbourne boutiques and fashion labels such as Pilgrim and Stock Them.

She said her next step would be going to the United States and venture further into her international modelling career.

“I will take on as many modelling jobs as I can and hopefully get signed internationally,” she said.

“Modelling is also about having fun. So being in Docklands and being able to go to shoots and events easily really helps with my career.”
