Model from Ubobo features as The Observer's Girl Friday

ANGELINA Taylor has been in Gladstone for most of her life and currently she lives on a Ubobo property with her fiance and two daughters.

Angelina loves modelling and has been doing it since she was 17-years-old.

"I have been doing a lot more in recent years, mainly photographic but have done a couple of media pieces as well which was an amazing experience," she said.

"You don't have to be six foot tall and paper thin to model and since realising that I have had the time of my life meeting fabulous new people and working on creative concepts with amazingly talented people."

Angelina said some of the opportunities she's had have been interesting experiences.

"I have had many memorable moments modelling," she said.

"On a shoot with Today Tonight they wanted to do a scene with me in a spa and I didn't think anything of it until after I had been in a few minutes and realised that all of my tan had come off in the spa.

"The reporter had to take me to a chemist to get more for the rest of the shoot it was pretty funny. It's amazing how people think it's a glamorous and easy thing to do when reality is there is a lot of work behind making a production look great whether its television, photographic or catwalk."

For Angelina, her favourite party of the industry is the effect is has on other people.

"Whether it's through an artistic photo or through the relationships you build with the people you meet along the way," she said.

"I want my work to show young girls that anyone can do it, my goal in life is to inspire young women, let them know anything is possible for their lives if they truly believe it."
