A WOMAN from Ipswich is aiming to become the country's next top model and is seeking votes in a competition that could help her on her way.

Kristina Grant, 29, lives on the Gainsborough Estate and is seeking your vote in her bid to become a Grid Girl and enter the glamorous world of modelling.

She is currently taking part in a national competition and is hoping that with enough support she can launch her new career.

There are 100 aspiring models in the current round of the Grid Girls 2009 competition and by June 21 the field will be whittled down to just three lucky ladies who will add some charm to the pits at Snetterton Race Circuit in July and take part in an exclusive calendar shoot.

The competition is run by the Kerri Packer Academy, of which Kristina is a member, and nine girls have already been selected in three earlier rounds.

Kristina said she was looking to get into modelling and thought entering the competition sounded like an interesting way to start her career.

She said: “I'm not a catwalk model, that doesn't interest me. I'm not sure what sort of modelling I would like to end up doing. I had a professional shoot done in December and thought that I would really like to do more.”

Kristina works as an administrative assistant for architects WPP in Ipswich's Cattle Market and is also a cheerleader for the Ipswich Cardinals American Football team.

The 12 finalists will get the chance to be Grid Girls on July 12 at the Thundersport GB motorbike racing event at Snetterton and a panel of judges will crown their “Miss Thundersport GB 2009.”
