- Isabelle Lee was named Maxim & # 39; s Australian Swimwear Model of the Year 2019
- The beautiful brunette, who is only 20 years old, wore four bikinis during the event
- But before she was introduced to makeup and glamor, she was a tomboy
- She rode motorcycles, went fishing and even caught crocodiles
Isabelle Lee has been named Maxim Australia & # 39; s Swimwear Model of the year 2019, a coveted position that will see her appear the cover of the magazine next month.
The makeup artist sparkled in a selection of four bikinis on Saturday at the Stingray Lounge on the Gold Coast, competing against 24 other girls for the best spot.
Speak with the Gold Coast Bulletin, Isabelle said she couldn't hold back the tears when the judges announced her as the winner when she paraded her neon blue swimsuit and her perfectly stretched hair along the runway.

But modeling is a whole new concept for the 20-year-old, who grew up in Canberra and on remote Elcho Island off the coast of the Northern Territory.
Running as a forest ranger on the island, Isabelle – who comes from Aboriginal, Chinese and Scottish heritage – would like to spend her days fishing and even wrestling with crocodiles.
& # 39; I caught my first baby crocodile at 1 pm & # 39 ;, she told the publication.

& # 39; We would grab and move them, it was great and I think I've always been very close to nature. & # 39;
As a small child, she described how the color pink and feminine dresses did not appeal to her and she was much happier playing with toy cars.
She was also an enthusiastic motorcycle and BMX rider as a teenager, uploading photos of herself in different horse riding outfits with captions such as & # 39; it's just a baby bike, but it's still fun & # 39 ;.

And while she still loves horse riding, camping and fishing, those hobbies go side by side with her career as a makeup artist and professional model

Isabelle has worked hard in the gym to keep her body in top condition and to share a message on Instagram for her Maxim debut.
& # 39; This was not an easy journey at all! The things you want the most are never easy, but if you work on them and stay consistent and resilient, you'll eventually get there, & she said.
The models were assessed in four parts, including photographic, Veve Swim, fantasy dives – of which Isabelle & # 39; s friend helped her choose a design – and her own swimwear
& # 39; I am not saying this is my end because I will never stop working. It is nice to remind yourself how far you have come and how much hard work and dedication you have done to get to where you are now. & # 39;
Isabelle hopes that by winning the title she can show young women that they can be beautiful and powerful in one go.
& # 39; I'd say just go for it, prepare to be rejected and work on it & # 39 ;, she said about her success.
