Country girl is keen on show
THE FIRST young Grafton woman to answer the call for Grafton Showgirl nominations is 21-year-old Emma Lee Pitkin.
Emma was born and raised in Coutts Crossing and cannot think of a place she would rather be.
“I haven’t really lived in town and I love being out a little bit. I really do love being from the country,” she said.
“I am a fairly family-oriented kind of person so it is good to have everyone so close.”
The 21-year-old works as a support worker at the Caringa Enterprises during the day.
However, in her spare time, she loves to saddle up and take to the countryside on one of her three horses.
“On the weekends I like to head out for a ride and I also compete at least once a month in campdrafts, which is heaps of fun,” she said.
Emma also likes to show her creative side with a sketch pad and a nice soft pencil.
“I really like to draw. I mostly do landscapes and the human form. My pieces usually end up in just black and white though,” she said.
Going to the show and being involved in the horse events since before she can remember, Emma’s motivation for nomination for Grafton Showgirl is based on what her friends have told her about the event.
“All of my friends who have nominated for showgirl have said that they have had an awesome time and made heaps of new friends,” she said.
“I hope to learn more about how the show really works and I am looking forward to meeting new people and getting to know different people from within the community.”
