Talia Murphy will represent Ireland in the next edition of Miss Europe Continental. Talia is an example of beauty and determination, despite her young age she already has strong values and goals and pursues them without anything of the common and daily schemes affecting her path.

Here's a little bit of Talia as she introduces herself to the audience, waiting to meet her on the big stage.

“My name is Talia Murphy, I’m 20 years old and I’m from Ireland. I am really passionate about the environment which lead to me studying sustainable energy engineering and becoming vegetarian for the last 5 years.

My hobbies include traveling, modeling and fashion design: I make sustainable clothes out of unused fabrics.

I am beyond grateful to be representing Ireland in Miss Europe Continental. As one of the only two women in my engineering course I would love to use this platform to encourage the younger generation of women to choose whatever profession inspires them regardless of the gender demographics”.
