Among those in this year’s sig­na­ture event was Jar­ron — giv­ing a pol­ished per­for­mance just a month af­ter mak­ing his cat­walk de­but. It was Grace who sug­gested he en­ter Face of Cairns Cen­tral for the cat­walk ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I was paint­ing houses, so I def­i­nitely needed the ex­pe­ri­ence and signed up,” he says.

“I saw how many beau­ti­ful and hand­some peo­ple were there. I didn’t even think I would’ve made the fi­nals to be hon­est. I was still try­ing to come to terms that I was ac­tu­ally there mod­el­ling.”

Jar­ron says his mum is his big­gest fan and his sis­ter was happy with his prizes, which in­cluded un­ex­pected gift cards for make-up and women’s cloth­ing.

“My dad took a while to warm up to the idea that his son was mod­el­ling, but me be­com­ing the Face of Cairns Cen­tral brought him on board.

“I just want to make my fam­ily, friends and peers proud to see a young in­dige­nous man achiev­ing new suc­cess in this in­dus­try.”
