Lo­cal model to take Amer­ica by storm

Ellenbrook Advocate - - FRONT PAGE -

AN El­len­brook teenager is hop­ing to take the mod­el­ling world by storm when she walks the fash­ion run­way in the In­ter­na­tional Miss Fash­ion Week com­pe­ti­tion in Mi­ami, Florida, on De­cem­ber 2.

Alan­nah Re­berger (15) won a place in the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter win­ning Miss Fash­ion Week Aus­tralia Teen Over­all af­ter tak­ing part in the run­way walk, photo shoot, ac­tive wear and over­all ap­pear­ance cat­e­gories.

Alan­nah has been mod­el­ling since 2015 when she at­tended a 10-week course. Since then the teenager has ded­i­cated ever spare mo­ment she has to mod­el­ling.

“Mod­el­ling has given me con­fi­dence to be nat­u­ral and true to my­self and I be­lieve it’s our in­di­vid­ual di­ver­sity that’s our in­di­vid­ual strength,” she said.

“I have adopted this phi­los­o­phy at ev­ery mod­el­ling job, be­ing the best of who I am and build­ing on my con­fi­dence and self-es­teem as I’m nat­u­rally a shy per­son.”

She said go­ing to Mi­ami was a dream come true. “It’s mind blow­ing,” she said.

“I’m still pinch­ing my­self that I’ll be rep­re­sent­ing Aus­tralia on an in­ter­na­tional stage. It’s what dreams are made of.”

Alan­nah’s mod­el­ling goal is to one day be a Vic­to­ria Se­cret model and hopes to me signed by IMG Syd­ney .

“I hope to con­tinue be­ing a role model for young girls to al­ways fol­low their dreams and to never give up,” she said.
