Why did you enter Ms Galaxy UK?

I have always been passionate about pageants, and this pageant is known for promoting women empowerment & sisterhood through competition, so the decision to enter was an easy one for me.

I am delighted to have been selected as a finalist, proudly representing my mother’s home county, Middlesex!

What are your preparations leading up to the finals?

Contestants of Ms Galaxy raise money for “The Christie”, which is a charity that helps fund cancer treatment and research, so I will be attending and organising many charity fundraiser events.

Also leading up to the finals my good friend will be coaching me to practice on my walk, interview, and presentation. I am very much looking forward to it.

What are you doing to raise funds for The Christie?

I am currently holding a raffle online, and I have plans to do a charity hike & a dinner very soon. People have been so generous with donations so far and I am very grateful for that.

What are you looking forward to the most about the pageant? 

Aside from experiencing a new, fun, and exciting pageant, I’m looking forward to meeting the contestants.

We are all working hard to prepare for the finals, so it’ll be lovely getting to know these ambitious, like-minded women!

Take me through your experience with Pageants. When did you start? What do you love about them?

I entered my first pageant at 16. I was going through a hard time, and I tried to find ways to distract myself. One day I saw an ad on Facebook that a pageant was recruiting contestants for their 2011 edition, and without much thought I decided to go for it.


I had a feeling that entering a pageant would regain my confidence, and it absolutely did. It inspired me to try to be a role model for others. I love how most UK pageants raise money for charity which is so important, because it’s not just about looking good on stage, it’s also about raising funds and awareness for those who need help the most.

Which is why I’m delighted to be raising for the Christie Charity.

How do you think entering pageants has improved your life in terms of skills?

Entering pageants gave me the confidence and recognition of my own self-worth. It also improved my speaking, organisation, and presentation skills.

What do you say to people who criticise beauty pageants as being “counter productive to women”?

I don’t think that pageants are counterproductive to women’s empowerment at all. Women like me and of all ages and backgrounds enter pageants not because we are being made to, but because we love what we do: The competitive aspect, the friendships that are made, the thrill of speaking and walking down the catwalk in front of thousands of people, being able to put our best foot forward and so much more.

And most importantly, pageants also provide us with a platform to voice the topics that matter to us the most, and especially provide a fantastic platform to the charities that we raise funds for.

Many people will not have heard of certain charities were it not for the hard work of those who volunteer and the people that come together to raise awareness and provide platforms via events and awareness campaigns like beauty pageants.

What date is the pageant being held?

24th March as from 7:30pm (Gibraltar time 8:30pm)
