PRETTY Poppy Bowen-Green is blooming into a catwalk model after catching the eye of fashion scouts - but she needs YOUR help.
The South Yorkshire 15-year-old has been short-listed from 7,000 girls to reach the top 100 of an online competition for a place in the live final of Miss Teen Queen UK.
So the Year 11 pupil at Wickersley school needs your votes to put here through and make her dream come true.
Poppy, who lives in Bramley, Rotherham, was visiting The Clothes Show Live at the Birmingham NEC when a model agency booker spotted her stunning looks and suggested she enter. The competition is for 16 to 19-years-olds but she qualifies because her birthday is next May, ahead of the live final in August 2012.
It would help to launch her model dreams with Miss Teen Queen UK making her first personal appearance at the Clothes Show Live.
Other prizes include a fashion portfolio photo shoot, clothes, accessories and beauty products, introduction to a model agency, model assignments and the chance to represent the UK in an international pageant.
Proud mum Helen said: “We want as many people as possible to vote for Poppy. It’s her dream to become a model and this could launch her career.
“She was on a day out from school, on a design and textiles course, when she was spotted at Clothes Show Live last year and invited to attend. Now she’s been short-listed from 7,000 girls to 100 online. The girls getting most votes will get a place in the live final.”
