Beauty queen Danielle Lynch is hoping for success in next weekend’s world finals of Miss Intercontinental.
The Larbert student flew out to Germany this week to prepare and rehearse for the event on December 14.
Danielle (24) took the Scottish title in May at a pageant in Manchester, where, as well as being named the overall winner, she took awards for the best interview, along with the swimwear and fashionwear categories.
A graduate of Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, with a BSc(Hons) in pyschology, she is now studying for a Masters in international fashion marketing at Glasgow Caledonian University.
The final takes place in the Martim Hotel in Magdeburg, which is outside Berlin, when 70 competitors from around the world will compete for the overall title.
Cheering her on will be mum Fiona and stepdad Scott.
Danielle, who wants to be a buyer for an international fashion company, hopes her “hard work, determination and ambition” will help her succeed.
