Teen tilt at beauty ti­tle

Eastern Reporter - - FRONT PAGE - Kristie Lim

AVELEY model Alan­nah Joy Re­berger is aim­ing to take out the teen cat­e­gory at the Aus­tralian Su­per­model of the Year 2018 com­pe­ti­tion.

The 16-year-old will fly off to Bali in Fe­bru­ary.

AVELEY teen Alan­nah Joy Re­berger has achieved her dream of be­com­ing a na­tional fi­nal­ist in the Aus­tralian Su­per­model of the Year.

The 16-year-old, who placed in the top three for the teen model cat­e­gory, will travel to Bali in Fe­bru­ary for the na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

Since launch­ing her mod­el­ling ca­reer three years ago, she has been coached by in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed pho­tog­ra­pher Peter Coul­son, pub­lished on the cover of three USA mag­a­zines and won the na­tional ti­tle at the Miss Teen Fash­ion Week Aus­tralia 2018.

Alan­nah said she felt an “over­whelm­ing sense of grat­i­tude” to­wards fam­ily and friends for their con­stant love and sup­port.

“As this would be a cul­mi­na­tion of my de­ter­mi­na­tion, courage and com­mit­ment over the past three years, it will be a dream come true,” she said.

“My prepa­ra­tion is to eat healthy, to ex­er­cise, to laugh reg­u­larly and avoid all forms of neg­a­tiv­ity.”

She aimed to “be nat­u­ral” and stay true to her­self dur­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I be­lieve it’s our in­di­vid­ual di­ver­sity that’s our in­di­vid­ual strength,” she said.

“I have adopted this phi­los­o­phy by be­ing the best of who I am.

“Mod­el­ling places me out of my com­fort zone, as in­wardly I’m a shy per­son, but when I’m in front of a cam­era or on the cat­walk, it brings the best out in me.”

After she grad­u­ates from Holy Cross Col­lege, she hopes to con­tinue de­vel­op­ing her mod­el­ling port­fo­lio in prepa­ra­tion for the in­ter­na­tional mod­el­ling arena.

Her goal for 2019 is to be signed by an in­ter­na­tional mod­el­ling agency.
