I was born on 6th August, 2003 in Shepparton, Victoria (Australia). I’m the youngest child and only daughter to Glen and Trudy Brooks (Dervish). My 4 older brothers are Caleb, Declan, Keegan and Noah. My ancestry is English, Albanian and Scottish.
I grew up in the small rural town of Barooga on the NSW border. I moved to Melbourne at the age of 10 years to pursue my love of dance and performing arts. My venture into the modelling world came a few years later when I signed with Giant Management.
It’s fair to say that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with the world of modelling. I’ve already travelled to so many great places and met countless amazing and talented individuals. I have high aspirations for a future in the industry and I’m prepared to work incredibly hard to achieve success.
My modelling work has included a wide array of dancewear, active wear and swim wear which says so much about the type of person I am and the lifestyle I lead. I’m often told that I look like a young Adriana Lima or Sara Sampaio. I’d like to think that in the future, other aspiring models may be told they look like a young Taya Brooks.
I’m not sure of what’s in store for me next. My philosophy is to take each day as it comes. I have some prestigious international modelling agencies currently tracking my progress and I’m excited that they have me on their radar.
Whilst modelling has certainly taken precedence in my life, I’m still immensely passionate about dance and performing arts. I’ve been dancing since I was 3 years of age. I dance in all genres and I also sing. I’ve been a member of the International Dance Organisation (IDO) Australian Dance Team since 2016. I’m also an ambassador for Flashdance Photography as well as the Act Now Speak Later Melbourne Team. This a team of dancers who raise funds for cancer research through a variety of initiatives including photo shoots, dance concerts and personal donations through Everyday Hero. With the loss of my grandpa to cancer at the age of 62 years and a family history carrying the BRCA gene, this is a cause close to my heart.
Thanks so much for stopping by …
Love Taya 🙂
