Teen mum Tara loves to be the centre of attention and has no issue speaking her mind, sometimes alienating herself from other girls.

Before falling pregnant at 17, Tara was studying performing arts. But she dropped out to care for her son, Riley, who is now two-and-a-half years old. 

Tara thinks it's time to get back into the swing of working and joined Beauty School Copouts to pursue a career in the beauty industry. Her sisters are both in beauty and the girls' dream is to one day open a beauty salon all together.

However, with absolutely no experience, Tara has a way to go yet - but she is willing to learn.

She is particularly interested in tattooing eyebrows, as she has had them done herself, but isn't sure she'll be any good at painting nails or cutting hair as she has very shaky hands! 

Tara is motivated not only by making herself look good, but by giving others makeovers to help raise their self-esteem. She loves the idea of making people feel good about themselves.
