A criminal profiler from Melbourne with an incredible life story has been named Miss World Australia 2017.


Esma Voloder, 25, has come a long way from the refugee camp she and her family escaped in the midst of the Bosnian war more than two decades ago.


The seasoned pageant competitor, who practices Islam, hopes to use the title to help break down the prejudices that surround her religion.

'The Islam that I know, that is in the Koran, I don't associate that with any acts that are occurring around the world,' she said after taking the crown.


'People tend to blame religion for the atrocities that are happening, but if we do that we take responsibility away from the individuals.'


'And then we are not able to assess them, and deal with them effectively, because we are blaming an external source,' she added.
Esma hopes that she can break down the misconceptions that have haunted the Islamic faith.
