Lara is an only child born to the sweetest parents. Despite of not having brothers and sisters, she was always surrounded by pets that are regarded as an extension of the family. Her mother Angela Agius who has been working in radio/television broadcasting from 1978, automatically introduced her to the media and hence developed an affection towards this kind of job at a very early age!
Lara primarily started singing, attending coaching lessons, while at the same time having a passion for the broadcasting media. By the age of 6, Lara was already recording her own programs (trying to imitate her mummy at home) and therefore she was offered a radio programme on the national radio station soon after, which has helped to further her developing broadcasting skills!
