WHETHER it's creating new outfits or riding her motorbike whenever she gets the chance, Angela McNamara isn't your average teenage 'girly' girl.

Entering Miss Teen Australia this year, the 16-year-old said she wanted to pursue a modelling career, but also enjoyed being outdoors and jumping on her dirt bike every weekend.

"I want to make a career out of modelling and saw Miss Teen as a great opportunity for that," Angela said.

"This is my first time trying out for anything related to modelling, but I'm really looking forward to the experience."

The Cathedral College Year 11 student from Alton Downs is also a keen netball player and will participate in a state competition next week.

With a passion for fashion, Angela said she did notice the pressure young girls face with what to wear.

"I see lots of young girls that are dressing too old for what they are, and I don't think it's the best look for them," she said.

"I don't really feel that pressure, I just wear what I feel is comfortable. I would say my style is a bit out there. I like to dress a bit girly, but I also have a pair of like punk rock boots, so I don't really follow a particular style."

Heading off to Mackay next month for the first round of the competition, Angela said she was shocked to be accepted as an entrant this year.

"I just want to do the best I can, and just keep trying," she said.

"I would love to try catwalk modelling as well as photo shoots, and travelling also goes along with modelling, so it would be awesome to achieve that one day."
