Eidsvold crowns showgirl winner
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.
