A Chat with Sarah Michelle Godfrey

 Wow, it’s been a busy 18 months for you, having been on Farmer Wants a Wife in Feb of last year. That must have been an unusual experience “contending” for someone’s affection. How did you find the competition?
The Farmer wants a wife was a great experience, I did it for a bit of fun and I really learnt a lot about myself going on the show and met some really great people along the way, it is a very different experience contending for some ones affection for sure and having other girls by your side going for the same Farmer it was interesting at times. In all was great fun and an amazing experience.
Did you find it opened a lot of doors for you?
Yes I think it did open a lot of doors for me, that wasn’t the reason why I did the show. A lot of opportunities have come my way since appearing on the show.. I am always up for new and exciting opportunities and I am always willing to give everything my best shot. My current US Manager actually found me on the Farmer Wants a Wife so that was defiantly a bonus.
You were in the top 20 National Finalists of Miss World Australia 2011, what was that like to be part of such a great event?
Miss World Australia was a great experience, it wasn’t just a beauty pageant it was also a charity event and it was great to give back to the community. I learnt a lot about my self going to the national finals for Miss World Australia and I met some amazing young women who have inspired me even more than before. I am a National finalist in Miss Earth Australia this year, the national final is in Sydney in September.
The GC Marathon is coming up, you’re running as a Lady Jane Ambassador for the Autism Charity, how have you been training for it?  Is this your first marathon?
The run is actually this Sunday I am exciting and nervous at the same time, this is my first ever half Marathon and I have been training really hard and have also raised awareness and money for Autism QLD. Lady Jane Healthy Living have been wonderful supplying me with my training schedule and also my supplements and eating plans.
And you’re off to the US shortly after to pursue your acting and modelling career. Have you got work lined up already?
I will be off to the states later this year early next year, yes my manage has lined up work for me. I few big brands are keen for me to come on board and have me as the face of their brands so some exciting opportunities are head in the very near
What would you say is your greatest achievement to date …?
To be honest the past year I have achieved so many goals within modelling and as an Ambassador, my main achievement would be winner my Lady Rider in Equestrian at the Brisbane Royal show last year, its something I have wanted to win every since I was a little girl.
What sort of work are you doing at the moment …?
At The moment i am a brand ambassador and model for Lady Jane Healthy Living  and Bodyography make-up , Amy Lea Taylor Designs , SP Tools Racing and i am currently modelling full time and presenting as well as studying part time at university.
So my life is pretty hectic but i love keeping busy and always like to achieve my goals
