Caister teen aims to be beauty queen

A GIRL from Caister has edged closer to taking the title of Miss Teen Queen UK after being scouted earlier this year.

Jasmine Heller, 16, was first spotted by an agency while at a dance exhibition in London in March, and after a photoshoot was put forward for the national competition.

She has now beaten thousands of others to make it through to the competition semi finals, and is relying on people voting for her online to make it through to the final.

Her mother, Cindy, explained they got the call saying she had made it to the semis on Tuesday night. She said: “I’m so proud of her, and now we need as many votes as we can get. I always thought she had the looks to do something like this.”

The former Caister High pupil is hoping to be one of two out of 50 to make it through her heats to the finals, which are being held in London in September.

Jasmine said: “I’m pretty shocked, to be honest, I never thought it would come to this. My friends are really happy for me and, hopefully, they’re going to vote for me.”

Among the prizes, the overall winner will go on to represent the UK in an international pageant, with expenses paid.
