A BOROUGH beauty is aiming to become an international hit – with a little help from home.
Rachael Dawson is hoping to be crowned Miss International in a prestigious beauty pageant this summer.
The 18-year-old needs £350 of sponsorship to secure her place in the contest – and has already raised £200 thanks to the support of family and friends.
The Miss International extravaganza takes place at the Park Hall Hotel, in Lancashire, on the weekend of Saturday, July 18, and Sunday, July 19.
Miss Dawson, from Hebburn, will aim to wow the judges in a host of categories, including best hair and personality, and the traditional evening gown contest.
Miss Dawson is hoping that a local business will come forward with a cash boost to help her respresent South Tyneside. She said: “All of my family and friends are really happy for me. It would be brilliant to win.”
