Tampax Worldwide

As Tanya's first worldwide campaign, she couldn't be happier representing a brand that is all about empowering women. Tampax has renewed the run of this campaign for another year and it is currently on air throughout the United Kingdom, some parts of Europe and Africa, as well as a secondary version for North America.

With Australian female director, Gemma Lee, guiding her - this commercial was successfully shot over two days in Vancouver, Canada.

No doubt, the first of more to come!

The Forest's Edge with perhaps the world's first non-Caucasian Elf!

Last year I was lucky enough to be cast in this Lord of the Rings-esque film and was blown away by the independent production.

Not only did my elvish ears look amazing, but we had an Elvish linguist on set who had written an entirely new Elvish language to avoid Tolkien copyright moving forward! That intimidating elf behind me in the below photo is the talented Karl Reifenstein, who was also our armourer for the film. If you can't make out the details in my armour from the photo, please visit his page. This short film reminded me just how much I love the sci-fi and fantasy genre. 

An interesting point was also made by one of my film friends who saw the below image on social media. He messaged me asking, 'Are you the first non-Caucasian elf in all of history?!' This is not something I had previously considered, but I then asked my Director, Jake Jones, to which he responded 'I think so.' So in terms of timeliness and relevance, I am so excited that this casting happened subconsciously. Organic change is real change.

Everyone gave it their everything and The Forest's Edge is currently in post-production with aims of finding investors who are interested in bringing this storyline into a more lengthy reality.

International Women's Day 2015 – Presenting to students at Morley Senior High School

This morning Tanya journeyed back to her old school, Morley Senior High School, where she delivered a motivational speech to inspire current students in the name of International Women's Day 2015, which is 8 March, 2015.

The theme this year is 'Make it Happen'.

Her high school dance teacher, Kerry Hinkley, recommended her to the event organiser, Ivana Gaglia, to talk about her achievements and what anyone can accomplish with hard work.

β€œI could see all of the students were really tuned into her. We were all impressed with how down to earth and inspiring her presentation was!”  
Ivana Gaglia, Technology & Enterprise, Morley Senior High School

It was a really fulfilling morning. She felt very privileged to be asked to speak at her old high school, catch up with some of her teachers and received great feedback from staff and students about her presentation.
