A teenage model from St Helens is set to jet-off to America to battle it out for a major international beauty pageant.
Bethany Cammack, 18, the reigning Miss Teen Galaxy England, will face girls from all over the world at the Galaxy International Pageant in Orlando, Florida.
She will be tested on a variety of skills as she bids to take the global title at the Hotel Caribe Royal too.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” she said. “I won the Galaxy Pageant as Miss Teen Merseyside in March and, as part of that, I was awarded a place at the competition in America. Now I want to make the best of my opportunity.
“I’ve been preparing hard for the contest, keeping myself fit and getting out into the community as much as possible. It is important to be a good role model.
“My title has given me a platform to reach more people with the charity work I do.
“If I was to win in America then I would be an international title holder and that would open the door further.”
As part of the pageant, Beth, who holds a Diana Award for her work with anti-bullying charity Bullies Out, will be interviewed by a panel and take to the catwalk in a number of different outfits including swimwear, fashion-wear and evening-wear.
She will also be judged on how photogenic she is and how she has used her Miss Teen Galaxy title. But as a double pageant winner already, nothing should come as a surprise.
She said: “I entered my first back in 2009 after attending the Clothes Show Live.”
