Charlotte Stevens,16, of Burniston has recently made it through to the grand-finals of Miss Teen Great Britain.
Charlotte, a student at Scarborough TEC, was awarded the title of Miss Teen North Yorkshire when she was chosen for the national grand finals in October last year.
Charlotte said: “When I got chosen for the national grand finals I got awarded for the title of Miss Teen North Yorkshire.
“I am so proud of this achievement and feel honoured to represent North Yorkshire.
“I first entered this pageant last February to give me something positive to work for in a tough time and shortly after I got selected as a semi-finalist which I was very proud of in itself.”
Since the start of the competition Charlotte has taken part in campaigns and fundraising for charities such as Together for Short Lives which is a UK wide charity that supports children and young people who are expected to have short lives, so far Charlotte has raised £700 for this charity and plans to raise much more after lockdown.
The grand finals of the competition are being held in Blackpool in October this year.
