A teenager from Chislehurst has reached the final of the Miss England competition where she will battle 60 girls from across the country for the coveted crown.

Emma Martin, 18, qualified after winning the Miss Kent title by impressing the judges with her poise and grace, in spite of her nerves causing her to slip on the catwalk.

The 5’9’’ schoolgirl wore an eco-dress made from recycled material which she had sown herself with the help of her fashion-designer mother Alison.

Emma is very excited to have reached the final stage of the Miss England competition, but does not feel that coming top is the only thing that matters:” I would be absolutely ecstatic if I would win, but I am so happy to have come this far. I have already increased my self-confidence, and ability to speak in public.”

The talented teenager won a scholarship to the Italia Conti School where she is currently in her second year of a three year Diploma in Musical Theatre. She said:” I am passionate about singing and would love to perform in the West End, or travel the world on cruise ships.”

As part of her Miss England bid Emma has been involved with Beauty with a Purpose Charity which helps children in need worldwide, and has taken part in fund raising activities such as runs, cake sales, and boot fairs.

The young beauty queen also loves animals and has volunteered for the Dog’s Trust since she was a little girl, and has recently adopted an orangutan from Uganda.

Angie Beasley, Director of Miss England, said that the standard of girls in this year’s competition was very high, but that the judges were looking for someone who could represent the country abroad and be a role model:” They must be a well-rounded individual who stands out from the crowd and possesses a natural beauty and flair.”

To vote for Emma text Miss England29 to 63333.
