What can I say in an interview that I am ready to go from Assistant manager to manager?

I use to work there before as a sales assistant, now I've been an assistant manager the area manager came to me and asked if I'd heard of the manager vacancy. I'm young and never been a manager, the department I'm assistant manager of is much bigger and takes much more money. I know I'm much more than capable of doing the job. But how do I convice her. I'm young, not been manager before. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!
