AYEESHA Tanna has achieved her goal to be­come a role model for the lo­cal com­mu­nity as Eidsvold’s Miss Show­girl.

Hav­ing lived in Eidsvold since Year 1 and at­tended the lo­cal state school, Ms Tanna fin­ished her stud­ies in 2009 and moved to Bris­bane shortly after.

“I did some se­cu­rity work at the Bris­bane In­ter­na­tional Air­port and had some in-be­tween jobs,” Ms Tanna said.

“After sev­eral years work­ing in Bris­bane, I moved back to Eidsvold in mid-2016 and since Novem­ber have been work­ing at the lo­cal chemist do­ing a phar­macy as­sis­tant trainee­ship.

“I am cur­rently study­ing a Cer­tifi­cate III in Com­mu­nity Phar­macy and really en­joy­ing it.”

Ms Tanna said she hoped to be­come a phar­ma­cist and one day be the head phar­ma­cist in Eidsvold.

She was crowned Miss Show­girl against eight other en­trants at Hol­ly­wood, A Night with the Stars on Satur­day.

“I just wanted to show the young in­dige­nous boys and girls that you can do any­thing you put your mind to., ”Ms Tanna said.

“It’s good to get out of your com­fort zone.

“I wasn’t think­ing about win­ning, I just wanted to be a good role model for the town.”

She said the skills learned would be valu­able.

“Be­fore this whole thing I was never good at talk­ing in front of an au­di­ence and now I can.”

Ms Tanna was thank­ful to her men­tor Dianne Wil­son.

“I’d like to thank Dianne Wil­son, who sup­ported us the en­tire time, and for en­cour­ag­ing us to keep go­ing. She was fan­tas­tic,” she said.

The Eidsvold Show runs from May 6-7.
