How did Miss Universe Australia 2016 help her?
In a statement, Tiivel said that the Miss Universe Australia 2016 contest helped her overcome anxiety and depression.
“I’m someone who has suffered from anxiety and depression in the past, and a lot of people think if you are always smiling, you are happy all the time. There is nothing wrong with you,” she said as quoted by the Herald Sun.
“But that’s the stigma that comes with depression. A lot of people don’t know when someone is suffering. I would really like to support a cause like that and provide some assistance to people who are going through a tough time.”
