I'm Emma Rose Collingridge, an 19-year old from Suffolk, England. In 2016 I secured a place at University after achieving straight A grades in English, Business Studies and Psychology at A-level and a Distinction Star in my BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Performing Arts - Dance. I decided to take a gap year to progress my modelling career and pursue other opportunities that had presented themselves whilst I held my Miss Teen Great Britain title.

I was fortunate enough to have the experience of being Miss Teen Great Britain 2015/16 after competing against many other amazing contestants for the title. Throughout my year I achieved many things I never thought possible, speaking in front of hundreds of people, running 10km, abseiling down the 175ft Trafford Centre Bell Tower, changing people's perceptions of pageants, campaigning for self-confidence in teens and raising thousands of pounds for a variety of charities. It was a huge honour to hold such a prestigious title and it's safe to say that my year as Miss Teen Great Britain 2015/16 helped me grow as a person and changed my life for the better.

Over the past few years, I have developed a real passion for modelling and presenting and have been grateful for the many opportunities that have come my way. I would love to continue to develop my modelling and presenting skills as well as delve more into acting. Playing a part in a music video recently has reignited my love of drama studies. I cannot wait to expand my horizons, work with new people and see where this year will take me!
