And the 23-year-old from Annan, who last year won the title of Miss Popularity and Miss Publicity at the Miss Cumbria pageant, is now vying to take a Scottish crown.
For she has been sashed Miss Dumfriesshire Gal- axy and will compete in March in Preston to take the Miss Galaxy Scotland crown.
Emily said: “I enjoy meeting new people, getting dressed up and making memories. I used to dance and perform on stage, so this is the next best thing for me.”
To lift the crown she’ll need to wow judges in a number of rounds including formal wear, party wear, swimwear and perform a showstopping en- trance number, as well as acing an interview.
And she says family, friends and her co-workers have been massively supportive.
She said: “I have received great support from everyone, which I am extremely grateful for.
“My family and friends are really proud and my colleagues are backing me every step of the way . . . well as long as I don’t turn the work boots to heels full time.”
And asked if she thinks she might be Scotland’s only police of cer beauty queen, she said: “As far as I’m aware I’m the only one to date, but hopefully I will inspire others to take part and to try something different. It would be great to have a number of us doing something as empowering to woman as this.”
As well as taking the crown, Emily hopes to take the Miss Popularity title too and she’s calling on lo- cals to show their support and vote for her by visit- ing the United Kingdom Galaxy Pageants Facebook page and ‘liking’ her picture.
