Giving back the love

FOR Emma Pails, becoming the Warwick Miss Showgirl is more than just a silky sash - it's about supporting her community.

Last year, Emma lost her mother Narelle to a snake bite and now she is ready to give back to the community that has supported her.

"Warwick has supported me my whole life and I would like to give back to Warwick and be the face of the show," Emma said.

She said she knew her mother would have been proud.

"I know she'd be supporting me and helping me, I know that," she said.

"When Mum used to take me to the show when I was little, she would say, 'That will be you one day'."

Emma said she would love to be the face of the Warwick Show and thinks she has what it takes.

"I have been doing equestrian and been involved with horses since I could walk and I've always loved dressing up and dressing up my horses," she said.

As part of the Showgirl competition, the girls must host a community event to raise money for the show society and this 18-year-old beauty is holding her fundraiser on March 1.

"I'm holding a movie night at the Warwick Twin Cinemas," Emma said.

"There will be nibbles and wine from 5.45pm and the movie, This Means War, starts at 6.45pm."

Tickets to the event are $15.
