A SERVICE adviser at Lookers is days away from finding out if she will be crowned a national beauty queen.
Georgia Mordey, 20, from Washington, was named Top Model of Sunderland earlier this year, which automatically secured her a place in the Supermodel England 2018 national final, scheduled to take place on November 17 in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
She said: ‘This is the first time I’ve taken part in a national final, so it’s very exciting for me. It’s been great fun taking part in all of the fundraising and events ahead of the final, which I’m very much looking forward to, as well as meeting all of the other participants on the day.’
She added that she wanted to be a model from a very young age, and at the age of 14 her dream came true when she started modelling for the fashion industry.
In recent years, she has also taken part in a number of modelling competitions, including Miss Teen Great Britain, which resulted in her winning through to the final 60 contestants, in addition to competing for the Miss Newcastle title at the age of 16 and 17.
Before being crowned Top Model of Sunderland, part of the process included Georgia raising money for her chosen charity, The Foundation of Light, completing a sky dive and organising a number of fundraising events.
In the run-up to the Supermodel England national final, Georgia has also taken part in a variety of activities and good causes, including arranging car boot sales, charity nights, working as a volunteer for local charity Hope North East, opening the annual Harbour Day at Sunderland Marina, as well as giving blood.
When she’s not strutting her stuff on the catwalk, Georgia works full-time as a service adviser at Lookers’ contact centre based at Teal Farm in Washington, where she is responsible for booking customers’ cars in for services and MOTs. It was formerly a Jennings contact centre, until the motor group was bought by Lookers in September.
Mandy Hoyle, contact centre manager, said: ‘We’re all absolutely thrilled for Georgia and wish her all the very best in the forthcoming national final.’
