Pulham St Mary girl reaches final of national modelling competition

A teenage model, who took up the career to beat school bullies, has reached the final of a national competition.

Jessica Wimbledon, 16, of Poppys Lane, Pulham St Mary has reached the final of the Teen Model of the Year contest organised by the Kerri Parker Academy in the photographic category.

She was selected out of 30 girls to attend the final in November after participating in a beauty pageant on March 6.

She said: 'I started doing modelling because I got bullied a lot and it all took off from there. I used to get called ugly.'
