Age: 17 (05/11/90)
Lives: Byron Bay, NSW
Personal: Alamela is a Year 12 student in Byron Bay where she is studying advanced English, Maths and Science. She has worked part-time as a veterinary nurse for six years, and would like to pursue a career in veterinary science. Alamela is extremely passionate about humanitarian aid work and conservation, and her greatest fear is that “the developing world will remain without access to education.” She also thinks politics is vitally important to the world and is scared of poor leadership affecting our youth. Alamela loves the arts, singing, writing, music and acting, and has studied Latin and ballroom dancing. Despite her age she has already travelled extensively by herself. A vegetarian, she’s never drunk alcohol, doesn’t touch tea, coffee or junk food and doesn’t remember when she was ever embarrassed.
Modelling/Fashion: Alamela has done some modelling in the past, and was represented by a small agency but is currently not under contract. Her favourite model is Twiggy, largely because she is an anti-fur activist like herself. Her favourite fashion trend is high waisted skirts, and she describes her style as classic, sophisticated and elegant.
