Girls' program strikes gold

Kira Fong has seized a golden opportunity and will expand her Kimberley and Pilbara Girl programs to the Goldfields next month.

Each of the programs aim to inspire young indigenous women between the ages of 16 and 25 to strive for greatness, all while improving their confidence and tackling relevant social issues.

With the same structure as the Kimberley Girl and Pilbara Girl programs, the Goldfields version will hold a week of workshops in both Leonora and Kalgoorlie-Boulder, with heats at the end of each week deciding which girls will go through to the final.

A week of finals workshops will then run, before culminating in a fashion show where the Goldfields Girl will be crowned.

Goolarri Media chief operations officer Kira Fong founded the program in the Kimberley in 2004 and jumped on the chance to expand it when former Member for Kalgoorlie Wendy Duncan advised her of the need for it in the Goldfields community.

Ms Fong said expanding the program meant more young indigenous women around the State could benefit from it.
