TWO Mandurah women are entrants in Miss Naidoc.
Bree Passmore and Tiarna Eades are part of the leadership and empowerment program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women aged between 18 and 30 years old.
Ms Eades said when she set herself a goal, she worked hard to achieve it.
“I love being physically active, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and this had led me to my career path choice,” she said.
“The main reason I entered Miss Naidoc was to build on myself, in some way, shape or form.
“Confidence, leadership, communication skills, integrity and empowerment are all things that build character; which is what the Miss Naidoc program is all about doing.”
Ms Passmore said she was proud of something that helped people become stronger people, stronger leaders and have healthier minds.
“I’ve always been passionate about taking all opportunities I can, building on myself and supporting others to grow,” she said.
The crowning of Miss Naidoc will be at a gala event at Crown Casino on May 27 as part of Naidoc Week.
It is the 10th anniversary of Naidoc Week in WA and the 60th anniversary nationally.
