No doubt about it, she's a Coolum girl
If you were browsing through the November 10 issue of Zoo Weekly and thought the attractive bikini girl on page 26 looked familiar, you might be right.
The girl is Coolum stunner Melanie Dwyer.
Disregard the fact that the magazine says she is from the Gold Coast, Melanie is Coolum through and through: she went to Coolum primary and high schools and still lives here.
The magazine also misspelt her name and said she was 23 – she is only 19.
But Zoo does have a fine eye for beauty and when Melanie’s photographer submitted some photos of her for publication, the magazine jumped at the chance.
Melanie is delighted with the exposure.
She has only recently completed her portfolio and is looking to break into the demanding world of professional modelling
To be published so soon in such a well-known magazine is a great confidence boost to the girl, who wants to follow in Jennifer Hawkins’ footsteps.
Melanie, who is hopeful of appearing again in Zoo, is doing the rounds of local modelling competitions and was a recent Miss Indy finalist.
She hopes to join a modelling agency and get work in Australia and, ultimately, overseas.
