NEW Miss Edinburgh, Susanne Sinclair, 20, nearly gave up on her modelling dreams after getting stick from friends.
But the sales assistant from Baberton said she was “thrilled” to be voted the Capital’s sweetheart.
She said: “I lacked confidence and didn’t want to tell anyone my ambitions, but since I’ve tried modelling everyone’s been so supportive.”
Now she will put her title to good use by supporting charities close to her heart.
“I’ll be working with charities like Kidney Research UK, who sponsor Miss Edinburgh. I’d also love to work with RSPCA and the NSPCC.”
