"Since winning the competition, I've done plenty of photo shoots and it really makes you feel like a celebrity for the day.
"I look up to people such as Danielle Lloyd and Katie Price and think modelling is something I would love to do in the future.
"Going to Paris will be such an amazing experience and I can't wait to visit the Eiffel Tower – it's been my dream for a long time."
She will head to Paris on Sunday, November 18, where she will go up against 100 other hopefuls.
Rosie-Mae is a former Malet Lambert School pupil and is studying dance, performing arts and sociology at Wilberforce College.
She has already performed in the West End production of Billy Elliot and hopes to move to the capital to pursue a career in musical theatre.
"It would be amazing if I could also get some modelling work down in London," she said.
"My dream would be to do magazine work and I'd love to be on a front cover.
"If I became the Face of Europe, I would mention I was from Hull all of the time and really promote our city.
"This competition has already opened so many doors and I can't wait to get to Paris."
Rosie-Mae will first host the charity night at the Freedom Centre on Friday, November 9, featuring dancers, singers and catwalk events. It will showcase fashions from Bliss at Princes Quay Shopping Centre and The Fairy Godmothers in Beverley.
Money raised from the night will go to Yorkshire's Rainbow Child Foundation and brain injury association Headway.
"It's going to be a fun night and I want to help promote local businesses," Rosie-Mae said.
"The more money I raise, the more points I get, which will help me in the competition, and I want to support others as much as I can throughout this."
Tickets for the event cost £5 in advance or on the door and the event starts at 7.30pm.
