Dana Trebar. Model and Marketing Executive: Adpro
Management Group - August 2017
did you get your break in the fashion and entertainment
Becoming a model has been my
dream for years, however I only recently made a break
into the industry. I went to a casting in the Gold
Coast where I met Grant Dwyer, Founder of Adpro Management
Group who saw potential in me and gave me the confidence
and skills to be part of the Miss Multiverse Australia
competition, which I am now a national finalist.
What do you most enjoy about the fashion and entertainment
I love meeting and working with
different people involved in the photo shoots. This
includes the Makeup Artist, Hairdresser, Photographer,
Models and all the assistants involved. Everyone is
always so positive and each provides great support,
and I like to surround myself with that kind of positive
What's your current projects?
Other than being selected as
Top 10 Miss Multiverse Australia National Finalist
which I am very excited about, I am currently studying
Law at University of Southern Queensland and am working
towards getting more exposure and nurturing opportunities
in the modelling and fashion industry, which my Agent
is actively supporting. I have recently done some
amazing model shoots with Raj Suri of Global Style
Australia and with Graham Shearer shooting in Byron
What are your plans for life after fashion and modelling,
or do you have a plan in motion to keep working in
the industry in a sustainable career?
Once I finish my Law degree
I hope to work in Human Rights law as I am passionate
about helping people and making a genuine difference.
What's your favourite brands at present? (dress, bikini
I love my Pajeana Swimwear from
Brazilian Flirting store in Byron Bay, Rose Noir Cocktail
and Evening dresses from Smik Boutique Rose Hill,
Oogii Shoes and Hand bags, Maui Jim Eyewear, Pretty
Porter Kaftans, Endless Love Lingerie, and my AE Alannah
Brown Organic Coconut Body Scrub.
What and who inspires you?
Jennifer Hawkins inspires me
as she started out as a model like so many girls today
and now she has achieved so much and is a very talented
woman, she never stopped believing in herself.
And of course my parents, especially
my grandmother. My Grandmother had a really hard life
growing up as she lived through World War Two and
the Hungarian Revolution. I admire that when she arrived
to Australia with my mother as Immigrants she gave
up everything so her family could have a good life.
Her dedication to her family has definitely been passed
on to my parents who are the most generous and selfless
people I know. They are my role models.
What's the biggest challenges
you have overcome?
Ive always been lucky
in life to not be faced with many challenges. But
up until 4 months ago I was living in Queensland.
I was living there for nearly 3 years in a small rural
town west of Brisbane working in the hospitality industry
where I made some great friends, but I realised that
in order to get the most out of a modelling career
and to represent my State NSW in which I grew up in
the Miss Multiverse competition I would have to move
back to Sydney. This was a tough decision to make
but it was necessary one as I have met so many amazing
people since I have been back in Sydney and been presented
with a lot more modelling opportunities.
When your not working in the industry, what do you
do to relax?
When Im not working I
like to read classical books, play the piano, and
What's your motto?
Pursue opportunities, and dont
be afraid to take risks.
