Christie Arthur represented Kiama at the Zone 2 Final in February and since then, has gone on to become the Showgirl co-ordinator for the Kiama Show. When she isn’t working with the Show, Christie is a research assistant and tutor. She works tirelessly in her community of Gerringong and joins Elyse to share what the Showgirl journey has given her.
Behind the Sash is a fortnightly podcast that celebrates and shares the voices of Showgirls around New South Wales. Not every Showgirl will reach the state final, but every Showgirl is a local hero with a story to tell.
The podcast was inspired by a Showgirl who felt that she “wasn’t smart enough”. The reality is that there’s only three things that make a Showgirl: passion for their community, passion for rural NSW and being a genuinely nice person.
