HOW WE CAME TO BE

Premier Elite Pageants was founded in 2018 by former Miss Charity Australia, Renata Grandao. 

The system was created as a platform to empower women of all ages to celebrate who they are, and encourage them to use their skills and talents to make a positive impact on our world.

OUR DIRECTOR

Hello beauties, my name is Renata Grandao and I am the proud Founder and Director of Premier Elite Pageants.
 

Following a tough battle with an eating disorder, pageants were one of the things that really helped me to feel confident in myself and in my abilities, that's why I am super passionate about what I do and what this system stands for.

 

At just 20 years of age I created the Premier Elite brand as a platform to help women gain the confidence that they need to be able to achieve their wildest dreams.

 

I have competed in pageants since the age of 3 and have always been a lover of the glitz, the glam and the friendships.

 

I hope that Premier Elite is able to provide women with the tools, resources and support that they need to be positive role models within our society.

DIRECTOR'S PA

Hi everyone, my name is Bianca and I'm Renata's Personal Assistant for all things Pageant related! 

You'll find me BTS over pageant weekend ensuring that everything runs smoothly. When you can't find Renata, feel free to say 'hello' and ask me any questions, that's what I'm here for. 

I competed in the system in 2020 but have been a part of it since it first started in 2018. 

When I'm not at pageant HQ you can find me empowering disadvantaged youth through a program that I am honoured to be a part of, or at university where I am studying to become a Social Worker. I also am an avid equestrian and absolutely adore horses!

BACKSTAGE MANAGER

Hi everyone, I'm Sara and I'm the Backstage Manager here at Premier Elite Pageants. 

Over pageant weekend you'll see me floating around doing all things BTS, when the lights come on and the music starts I'm the manager of our super-efficient and amazing backstage crew. 

I've actually been involved in pageantry for a very long time, it was one of my favourite things to do in my teens and as a young adult. 

I have been a part of Premier Elite since it started in 2018 and am really passionate about what we do for women across Australia.
