A WOMAN is set to represent Rotherham in a national beauty pageant which could lead to an international final.
Emma Biggins (33), of Magna Crescent, already holds the Ms South Yorkshire Galaxy title and is now preparing for the Ms Galaxy UK event in Lancashire next March.
Blogger Emma, who spends much of her time in Marbella where she does some work for her sponsor South Spain Properties, heard about the pageant on the internet and was keen to take part.
She said: “It is my first pageant.
“I remember watching pageants like Miss World and thinking how glamorous and exciting it must be to get to do something like that. I cannot believe I will be taking part in a pageant myself.
“I just received my sash and it is starting to become very real.
“I hope to do South Yorkshire proud by bringing home the crown.”
The winner of Ms Galaxy UK will travel to the USA with contestants from all over the world to compete in the Ms Galaxy International final next summer.
Emma added: “The international final is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and will be a truly amazing experience.
“The UK has enjoyed some amazing success at the Galaxy International pageant winning an international crown eight times and had placements in every division for the past four years.”
Part of Emma’s beauty queen role is to help fundraise for a good cause.
She said: “I will be fundraising up until March for a great charity called The Christie.
“It is a cancer charity and all money raised will go towards a proton beam therapy centre.
“I would like to thank my sponsors South Spain Properties who have made this possible for me.”
