Shanina started modelling when she was 8 years for Myer and appearing in a TV commercial for Hyundai, but stopped when she started high school and got accepted into an accelerated program, graduating a year before her classmates. At the age of fifteen, encouraged by others, she entered the Girlfriend Model Competition. While agents were interested in her, she was too young to move to Sydney , so she went on to participate on the Australian reality show Make Me A Supermodel, finishing as the runner-up.
