A KEEN skier is hoping to make tracks in her bid for the title of Miss England 2013.
Hannah Stacey, from Hook End, is one of 14 girls competing in the latest heat qualifier for the popular competition that bids to make stars out of aspiring models.
Now the 18-year-old brunette is hoping she has got what it takes to receive enough votes to make the top three in her heat. If she gets through, her fate will be in the hands of a panel of judges, which includes last year's winner Charlotte Holmes.
They will decide if she has enough model potential to receive a place in the Miss England semi-finals, which will take place in June.
The public vote is now underway and Miss Stacey is relying on the support of Brentwood residents, before voting lines close tomorrow (Thursday).
Miss Stacey, a former student at St Martin's School, is currently working at Leonard Lodge Nursing Home in Hutton.
In the future, she wants to go to university to study nursing.
She spends a lot of her free time skiing with friends and family.
She said: "I really enjoyed my photo shoot at Fresh Academy recently and hope that my shot proves that I have all the makings not only to be a top model, but a future Miss England. I hope my local community will get behind me and help me fulfil my dream of competing in Miss England."
When asked what they are looking for, Miss England director, Angie Beasley said: "As a model it is important that you are photogenic, and that your beauty can be captured by the camera and translated into a picture.
"Not everyone is naturally photogenic, so this qualifier aims to find those girls who look great behind the camera as well as in front of one."
The heat four winner will not only receive a place in the Miss England semi-final, but will also receive a one-day beauty pageant training day with The Front Academy, an A4 print for her portfolio from the Fresh Academy and one spray tan a month for a year from Montana Tan worth £300.
