The judges had a hard time choosing finalists for the 2017 Pilbara Girl last Friday night as 10 beautiful indigenous girls took to the runway at the ibis Styles in Karratha. Pilbara Girl is a life-changing program which aims to improve self-esteem, empower and encourage positive change in the personal and professional capacity of young indigenous women.

In the weeks leading up to the heat, the girls took part in a series of self-development workshops which focused on self-esteem building, grooming and hygiene, health and communication, and public speaking.
