‘I will never forget it’: Tayla

TAYLA Maloney has returned from a lifelong memorable experience in Sydney, representing both Casino and Zone One in The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl Competition 2014.

"It was amazing and very busy," she said.

"We had a professional development day, visited Westmead Children's Hospital - which was eye-opening - visited the governor-general's house and did some public speaking."

Despite not winning or coming in the top three of the competition, Ms Maloney was not disappointed.

"There were 850 girls in New South Wales, who entered this competition and I made it in the top 16," she said. "It was mind-blowing and pretty incredible that I got that far."

Ms Maloney said she would continue in the showgirl movement and encouraged young women 18-25 years to try it out.

"I just want to say a huge thanks to my family, friends and the show society for their fundraiser as I couldn't have done all this without them," she said. "It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I will never forget."
