A RHYL girl has won a place in the semi-final of Miss Teen Great Britain 2014.

Emma Twist from Rhyl beat competition from across the country to be named as one of the semi-finalists. She will attend the grand final of the competition at the Globe theatre in Cardiff.

Emma, aged 15, a pupil at St Bridgid’s High School, said: “I am so excited to have made it to the semi-finals - I just sent my details in and didn’t think anything more of it; I was very surprised to be picked.

“I hope I can get through to the final and represent my hometown. I would love to show girls of my age that it isn’t all about what you look like, but how act and you present yourself to others.”

So far the competition has been internet based, judging photos and an interview form. Charity work is part of the semi-final and Emma has been raising money for Claire House Hospice, located on the Wirral.

She added: “I am completing a 10km sponsored walk in high heels to raise money. I am aiming to raise £100, which will pay for a terminally ill child to use the hydrotherapy facilities in the hospice.

“I am also doing a cake stall on Valentine’s Day to raise money. Any donations would be greatly appreciated, before or after the event.”

Emma’s sponsored walk took place on Sunday.
