GRAFTON girl Tayla Monkhouse could become the next Miranda Kerr.
Tayla recently won the Goldwell hair-colour modelling comp and is off to London in October.
"I'm so excited about going to see London," said Tayla.
"Even just doing a catwalk in England, you never know you might get spotted by someone or even get an English agent."
Tayla is a born-and-bred Graftonian and a former student of Grafton High.
These days she is studying towards a fashion business diploma in Sydney.
Long-term, Tayla hopes to work as a counsellor.
"I just really want to help people and ultimately do something more rewarding than fashion."
Tayla is a self-confessed "gym-junkie" and funds her studies by working part-time at a Sydney gym.
Tayla said it was her father Wayne who suggested modelling.
