Passionate about agriculture, hands-on Wagin farm girl Sarah Bolt cannot wait to mix with locals and visitors alike at Woolorama.

As this year's Wagin Agricultural Society's rural ambassador, Ms Bolt has never shied away from the rigours of farming life. She has helped out on her parents farm during seeding, while carting hay and shearing.

"I am looking forward to having a good chat to people about what's going on over the weekend," Ms Bolt said.

Born in Wagin, she spent five years in Perth studying and working as a beauty therapist before returning to Wyalkatchem to work for Elders.

Ms Bolt said this role would allow her to show people of all ages there were many opportunities for people in the country.

Part of Ms Bolt's role as ambassador will be to promote youth in rural communities.
