A Bridlington teenager is hoping for the support of the town to get to the next stage in a national beauty contest.
Zienna Haigh, 17, has made it through to the heats of the Teen Queen UK beauty pageant, with the winners going through to a live final in London later this year.
But to do that, Zienna needs people to log onto the Teen Queen website and vote for her.
Performing arts student Zienna, who attends Westwood college in Scarborough, said: “I was at Move-It in London (a dance festival) and someone asked me if I wanted to enter a beauty pageant.
“I’d never thought about doing it before but then I went and did a photoshoot.
“It was really weird but really fun and everyone said I looked completely different in my pictures.
“I would love to get to the finals, I have already got down to the last 80 from around 2,000 entrants so if people wanted to vote for me it would be brilliant.”
You can vote for the former Hilderthorpe Primary and Bridlington School pupil by texting TQ plus Zienna’s entry number ‘58’ to 81319 or by calling 0900 5961000 and entering ‘58’. Texts and calls cost 75p, but calls from a mobile may be more.
The voting closes on May 15 at 11.30pm.
The competition enables girls from all walks of life and backgrounds the once in a lifetime chance to give modelling a go, as well as take part in a professional photo-shoot at a top London studio.
The girl crowned Miss Teen Queen 2013 will be given the opportunity to go to an international pageant where she will represent her country and also be introduced to a top modelling agency.
