HAN­NAH Al­lan has been named Mun­dub­bera’s Miss Show­girl for 2017.

Born in Mun­dub­bera, Ms Al­lan at­tended the Boynewood State School be­fore mov­ing to Toowoomba for board­ing school.

In­ter­est in be­ing a voice for woman in the ru­ral com­mu­nity led Ms Al­lan to nom­i­nate her­self for the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I just really wanted to give back to the com­mu­nity, Mun­dub­bera is a great place and the shows are a way to de­brief with every­one, they’re di­verse as well,” Ms Al­lan said.

“As the show­girl win­ner I will be a voice for ru­ral youth, I will en­cour­age them to not give up and I will sup­port them.”

Win­ning the Mun­dub­bera Miss Show­girl was not on the cards for Ms Al­lan.

“Up against two other girls who are in­volved within the com­mu­nity was dif­fi­cult, I didn’t think I’d win, the girls knew a lot about their com­mu­nity,” Ms Al­lan said.

“I am very hon­oured.” Ms Al­lan com­pleted a cer­tifi­cate IV in Ve­teri­nary Nurs­ing and is now study­ing a Bach­e­lor of Nurs­ing/ Sci­ence at the Univer­sity of the Sun­shine Coast.

“It’s a three year de­gree and I’m cur­rently in my first year and really en­joy­ing it,” Ms Al­lan said.

“When I fin­ish my de­gree I hope to go back ru­ral and help out and maybe down the track may re­sume with more stud­ies in ra­di­og­ra­phy, but right now it’s just study­ing.

“I be­lieve learn­ing is very im­por­tant and should be en­cour­aged.”

Ms Al­lan loves be­ing out­doors and par­tak­ing in wa­ter ski­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

“I en­joy go­ing to na­tional parks, camp­ing, bike rid­ing, wa­ter-ski­ing and trav­el­ling,” she said.

Ms Al­lan was crowned the win­ner at Won­der­land After Dark ear­lier this month.
