Miss Galaxy Scot­land Emma Bain, 27, trav­elled to the In­ter­na­tional Galaxy fi­nal in Or­lando last month and was de­lighted with her plac­ing.

The former Colt­ness High pupil said: “It was the most in­cred­i­ble week of my life.

“I had the hon­our of com­pet­ing on the in­ter­na­tional stage against beau­ti­ful girls from all around the world and it was a plea­sure to meet every­one of them.

“I am so de­lighted to say that I placed sec­ond run­ner-up.

“From my re­ac­tion, you would think I had won but to me I was al­ready a win­ner and am su­per proud of my­self to have placed so highly.

“I en­joyed ev­ery sin­gle part of the week from re­hearsals to the py­jama party to the pre­lim­i­nary com­pe­ti­tion.”

Galaxy is one of the top five pageants in the world, just af­ter Miss World and Miss Uni­verse.

Com­pet­ing against 16 other women in her cat­e­gory, Emma said it was a nervewrack­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The com­pe­ti­tion con­sisted of four dif­fer­ent rounds in­ter­view, a fash­ion wear round al­low­ing con­tes­tants to choose an out­fit that rep­re­sents their per­son­al­ity, bikini and evening gown con­tests.

Emma added: “To ev­ery sin­gle per­son who gave me ad­vice, sup­ported me and sent good-luck mes­sages — thank you from the bot­tom of my heart.

“You have no idea how much it means to me. Es­pe­cially those of you who sat up half the night to watch the live stream and leave amaz­ing com­ments on my videos.

“To my fam­ily and, of course, boyfriend Mick, thank you for your unconditional love and sup­port. I re­ally couldn’t have done it with­out you.”

Miss Galaxy Aus­tralia Shikye Smith was crowned win­ner.
