A TEENAGER is heading for the catwalk.

A day out at The Clothes Show in Birmingham turned into a memorable experience for 17-year-old Emma Evans from Bickley. She was hand picked by scouts to attend a professional modelling shoot at a London studio.

And the Bishop Heber High School student was then shortlisted from 9,000 people for the 2011 TeenQueen UK beauty pageant.

“I really enjoyed my experience in London, it was great fun,” Emma said.

To vote for Emma, text TQ30 to 81319 or call 0900 593 8000 and give the number 30 before voting lines close on June 16.
