A BOLTON teenager is gearing up to enjoy glitz and glamour in the final of Miss Teen Great Britain.
Organisers say the event is not a beauty contest but has been created to be a positive and confidence-building experience.
The former Canon Slade pupil, who is set to study art and design at Bolton College, said: “It’s about how you are as a person and how you represent yourself. It would mean a lot to me to win. You get to go everywhere and see different places and meet all the girls.”
At the age of 14, Tamara took part in a photoshoot with Alan Strutt, who has snapped some of the world’s most glamorous women, including Naomi Campbell and Madonna, and she now hopes to sign to a modelling agency in London.
She added: “I would love to make a career out of it.”
