The face of Europe in an upcoming American beauty pageant will have travelled from Burnley – via Poland.
Beautiful student Klaudia Kwiatkowska (20) beat off a host of other would-be models from across the continent in the European leg of the Miss American Dream contest.
Now Klaudia, of Sycamore Avenue, will represent Europe in the final of the contest in Las Vegas in February.
The University of Central Lancashire student said: “I’m so excited to be going to America.
“I have never been before – it will be such a good experience because I would love to become a professional model.”
Klaudia was featured in the Burnley Express in March after she was chosen to compete in the Miss England final, only to see her hopes dashed because she didn’t hold a UK passport.
Klaudia also raised £117, with the help of sponsors Right Deal UK from Burnley, for the Cancer Reconstruction Charity run by Dr Ali Juma.
