A NIGHT on the catwalk in London awaits a Morpeth teenager, after she qualified for the final of a national competition.
Debbie Snowdon has qualified for the Teen Queen UK finals after being one of two girls with the most votes in one of the monthly heats.
And the Kirkhill girl is hoping that appearing in the competition will help her get modelling work in the future.
She found out about it at a Britain’s Next Top Model Live event last October and as part of her entry she did a photoshoot.
The 14-year-old said: “The photographer was very helpful and I really enjoyed the experience, which encouraged me to take up modelling.
“My picture was selected to go on the Teen Queen UK website and with just two girls going through to the finals I was delighted to be one of them. I’m very grateful to my friends and family for giving me a lot of support.
“I’m really looking forward to the finals and hopefully I will do well. After the competition, I will approach modelling agencies in Newcastle and see if I can do any work for local shops.”
Debbie will be part of a joint photoshoot the day before the finals, which will take place on September 2. Those who get through the first round on the night will be asked questions about themselves and their future ambitions by the judges.
She is also involved in the Miss Charity Princess section through raising money for The MAD Foundation, which helps people in some of the world’s poorest countries to help themselves by working with them at a grassroots level to develop much needed community resources.
