Mt Larcom Student represents her community in Indigenous Model Search

Local student, Tallara Horan has been selected as a finalist in an Australian wide Aboriginal Model Search. Tallara entered the competition because her mum, Marisa, thought it would be fun.

The Central Queensland finals were held in Rockhampton shortly after Tallara took out the title of Show Princess at the Mount Larcom Show.  All the family were excited for her but are keeping her ego in check, making sure she remembers she still has homework and chores to do!

7c8a5950Fourteen-year-old Tallara is a country girl at heart and spends most of her spare time riding horses. In year nine at Mt Larcom State School, Tallara’s favourite subject is Agricultural Studies because she enjoys being outside and working with animals.  She’s still not sure what career path she’d like to take but she’s excited to see where the opportunity with Aboriginal Model Search could take her.

Tallara will travel to Sydney to compete in the finals on the 1st of October.  Neither Tallara nor Marisa have been to Sydney before so they’re both looking forward to the event. Tallara says that going to the city will be fun but she loves the Gladstone region because it offers a mix of both urban and country living.  With fond memories of all the family being together at Christmas under the big tree on the farm, it’s easy to see why she loves it here.

The Horan family has never been a part of a competition like this before, so if you are able to assist the family in getting to the competition in Sydney we’d love to hear from you. Tallara’s mother Marisa can be contacted on 0467 097 651 if you would like to find out how you can help.
