Sam to sizzle in Tweed

If you needed another reason to get excited about summer, here it is.

Tweed supermodel Samantha Harris has returned to her hometown for a swimwear shoot for Gold Coast Eye.

The 23-year-old, who has smouldered for David Jones and nailed the cover of Australian Vogue, took to Burleigh Heads National Park to show why she's billed as a role model – not just for the Aboriginal culture but all young Australian girls.

"I'm not on any strict diet but I do try and be really healthy and a positive body image role model for young girls," Harris said.

"In the modelling world I think people perceive models as being naturally skinny and that's it.
But it's a lot of hard work – it's really hard."

Harris will return to the Coast later in the month to front the Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival.

"Work can keep me so busy and, even though I speak to my family every day, nothing beats being able to come back home and see them in person," she said.

"Tweed is a pretty small town so most people know me and don't get too excited (by my success) but I think at the same time they are really proud and supportive."
