AN AMBITIOUS girl from Beckingham has entered a competition to become a model – but she needs YOUR help to make it to the top.

19-year-old Jess Tomlinson from Beckingham recently entered a modelling competition and needs readers to vote for her.

Now, Jess has entered a competition to be a model for Next, sponsored by the magazine Grazia, and the top modelling agency, Storm Model Management.

To get through to the first round, she needs to be in the top 250 from public votes alone.

“Last year I got asked to be model when I went to get a prom dress, then I started work for an agency and I’ve been doing it ever since,” she said. “I love modelling because you meet so many lovely people and go to some great people – runway modelling especially because of the adrenaline rush.”

She added: “I need people to vote. It would just mean so much to me to win because you get to be in the Next catalogue and shops and in magazines and work with a top agency.”

“I’m very serious about doing this with my future.”

YOU can vote for Jess today by visiting www.next.co.uk/model-competition-2011 and searching for ‘Q0Q7L8E1.’
