21-year-old Alexandra Atkins is the Berry Showgirl for 2019 and will now head onto the zone finals in two weeks time.

A passionate local, Ms Atkins is studying agribusiness and was able to impress judges with her passion for the region, as well as her confidence and knowledge of the rural sector.

She says she's learned a good deal about herself and wants to be an example for other young women.

"I've always been involved in a very male-dominated area, being in agriculture I jillaroo'ed for a number of years to show and prove to those guys that you can do it and you can put your mind to it," Ms Atkins said
