"I am extremely grateful for the amount of doors that are being opened for me,” she said.

"I have been performing from a very young age and decided to apply as I have always been very tall and into my fitness so I thought ‘why not?

"Little did I know I would come out with the opportunity of walking twice at London Fashion Week and potentially pursuing a career as an editorial model!”

The contest includes a fundraising aspect, with donations to The Top Model Foundation’s via Georgina’s fundraising page going to help ill children and giving her votes for the teen in the contest.
