Swimwear model turns snowbunny for comp

BRIANNA Abdoo is not one to shy away from a crowd.

Today's Girl Friday will be getting ready to compete in the Miss Snowbunny competition held in the Rockhampton nightclub Zodiac.

The 21-year-old is not unfamiliar with modelling competitions.

In just a year of competing she has made it to nationals for Miss Hawaiian Tropics, Miss V8 Supermodels and will compete at the Miss V8 Supercars nationals this October.

"It's pretty scary at first (walking on stage). You get a bit of an adrenaline rush, but once you've gone out the first section of the competition, it's all right for the rest of it," she said.

One of her big moments for the year was being named the face for Favela swimwear.

"I'm just doing it as a hobby, and wherever it takes me I'll go," the Coffee Club barista said.

Brianna moved to Gladstone more than a year ago with her partner for his work.

"We're originally from Newcastle. It's pretty different, and I'm used to living next to a big shopping centre," she said.
