:: Spotlight :: Model Profile - Emma Cotton

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

MARYBOROUGH'S Emma Cotton has only competed in two modelling events so far, but it's fair to say she's off to a flying start.

Earlier this month, Emma took part in Miss Mooloolaba, where she came first in her heat.

The final for the event will be held on Friday night.

Then she took part in a Miss Hawaiian Tropic heat in Maroochydore and placed second in her heat, qualifying her for the final of the event, which will be on Sunday night.

Emma was also named crowd favourite after the heat, a title she was thrilled to come away with.

Emma takes her health and fitness seriously, training twice a day and focussing on her diet to make sure she stays in great shape.

She said she loved meeting other women at the event.

“The other girls are great, we all just hang out during the night and it's just a fun experience.”
