Jemma Hart, the granddaughter of Colleen and Warren Hart of Hart’s Garage, is the first entrant in the 2018 Kiama Showgirl competition.
The 22 year old nursing student from Kiama Downs says she is excited to be part of the Showgirl competition.
“I’ve heard many great things about it, and I’m sure I’m going to have lots of fun.
“Some of the things I am hoping to gain from this experience are a further understanding of the way our community functions and about our farming and agriculture.
“I am also excited to see what goes on behind the scenes of organising something like the Show.
“On a personal level, I am looking to build on my confidence.”
Jemma, who enjoys playing hockey, playing piano, bushwalking and makeup artistry in her spare time, says she would like to continue her family’s longstanding involvement with the community as a possible young ambassador.
“I love many things about Kiama, it has been my home since I was born and I feel very privileged to have grown up in such a beautiful place.”
The Hart family have been long-time sponsors, occasional exhibitors and regular attendees at the Show.
