AN Exmouth psychology student is on the verge of becoming the new face of popular chain of fashion stores - but she needs your votes to win.Naomi Cox, 17, of Mudbank Lane, is studying English language, ICT and psychology at Exmouth Community College. She is currently languishing in second place in an online modelling competition.Scotts is a retail fashion shop, mainly in London, Birmingham and other large cities - and Naomi is the only finalist from the South West to make it through to the last 30 in a competition to be next "Face of Scotts" for 2009. Naomi hopes to win the competition and get to be seen in the windows of 40 stores nationwide, as well as being the focal point of a huge outdoor media and web marketing campaign.But, while she was the face of McKays of Exmouth when she was just 13, she says her long-term ambition is to join the police."I want to become a policewoman, but have always dreamt of stardom" she said. "I saw the competition online and decided to enter - and then I forgot all about. "Then I got an email to say I was in the final round. I was shocked and extremely excited. I decided that, as I had managed to get through the first three rounds by doing nothing, I would actively promote myself to win."I entered it because it sounded like a good competition with good opportunities. Uri Gellar predicted I would be a supermodel when I was 10 - so maybe he will be right!"Proud dad Shaune Cox said: "Naomi can overcome any obstacle through her sheer determination and stubbornness."To vote go to http://face.scottsonline.co.uk/photos/ladies/, click the stars and their vote is registered.
