Geography Student in Modelling Contest

GORGEOUS Geography student Lisa Hendry had her sights set on a career in teaching.

But that might have to change as she now bids for glory in a top national modelling contest.

The 18-year-old Stranraer beauty has just been chosen as one of six finalists in the Pirelli Girl competition.

Thousands of hopefuls had entered, including many girls with modelling experience.

But it was a case of first-time lucky for Lisa who had never done anything like it before.

Now she is urging everyone in Scotland to get behind her as she aims to land the title and with it a year's contract as a Pirelli Girl, a ride in a World Rally Car and appearances on Channel 4's rally show.

Speaking exclusively to the "Free Press" she said

"As the only Scottish girl to have reached the final six, I am very proud I feel as if I am representing my country!

"Now I hope everyone will vote for me by logging onto the world rally championship website."

Lisa, who lives at Sandmill Farm in Cairnryan Road, is studying Geography at Edinburgh University, where she has just finished first year.

She was aiming at a career as a Geography teacher but that is all up in the air with her success in the Pirelli contest.
