Tough judg­ing for

TALIAH Faint’s am­bi­tion in life is not limited as she be­lieves you should seek ev­ery op­por­tu­nity that comes your way.

On Satur­day night she drew on her pub­lic speak­ing ex­pe­ri­ence from her school days to calm the nerves for her Biggen­den Miss Show­girl judg­ing.

The 20-year-old has lived in Biggen­den all her life and is the face be­hind the deli and cafe at Biggen­den Food­works where she is su­per­vi­sor.

“Win­ning Miss Show­girl will be a great ex­pe­ri­ence and will be an op­por­tu­nity to be­come more in­volved in the com­mu­nity and the show move­ment.

“In­stead of be­ing a spec­ta­tor I will be in there pro­mot­ing my com­mu­nity,” she said.

With run­ner-up Dal­larnil State School teacher Samantha Ward, they faced the judges be­fore be­ing in­tro­duced to the packed show hall.

Judge Stacey Wil­son said the de­ci­sion was dif­fi­cult.

“They are both warm, in­tel­li­gent, lovely girls,” she said.

Miss Show­girl 2013 Krys­tal Wil­son and co-or­di­na­tor Ni­cole Gibbs sashed and made pre­sen­ta­tions thanks to the gen­eros­ity of spon­sors to both Taliah and Samantha.
