ONE Glad­stone teenager is ready to make a mark on the mod­el­ling world as she goes in the run­ning to be the 2018 Teen Aus­tralian Su­per­model of the Year.

Emily Glee­son, 15, said she was ready to dive into the com­pe­ti­tion.

“I am very grate­ful for the op­por­tu­ni­ties I have had and I’m very keen to see where it takes me,” Emily said.

“I am so ex­cited and look­ing for­ward to the pho­to­shoots and film­ing with the Aus­tralian Su­per­model of the Year (team) in Bris­bane later this month.

“I feel very lucky to have so much sup­port.”

Trained by Elite Av­enue, Glad­stone, Emily will be re­quired to show­case her cat­walk and mod­el­ling skills in the State fi­nals in Bris­bane on Oc­to­ber 28.

She said she was par­tic­u­larly look­ing for­ward to re­ceiv­ing run­way train­ing and meet­ing the judges.

“I love work­ing with the men­tors and other mod­els,” she said.

“I was re­ally ex­cited to know that if I was to get through the State fi­nals in Bris­bane, I could be go­ing through to Bali for a pho­to­shoot – it would be in­cred­i­ble.”

Her past mod­el­ling achieve­ments in­clude be­ing pub­lished in over 12 fash­ion mag­a­zines, be­ing se­lected for the Supre Fash­ion ‘S-Gang’ Cam­paign, the Chet­cuti Fash­ion Cam­paign Mackay, Miss Glitz Aus­tralia 2017 and Miss Diamond Aus­tralia 2017.

How­ever, the teen model said she tried to bide her time smartly by jug­gling her cre­ative pur­suits with her ed­u­ca­tion.

Keep­ing her grades up was im­por­tant, she said, for her to have op­tions in the fu­ture.

Emily said her mod­el­ling ef­forts in­cluded fundrais­ing for not-for-profit causes she was passionate about.

She re­cently spent time col­lect­ing money and try­ing to raise aware­ness for the Glad­stone An­i­mal Res­cue Group.

“(They) care for aban­doned pets who need re­hom­ing,” Emily said.

“I love an­i­mals and want to help.”
