Achievements

I won Miss Fresh Photographic Heat 7 which granted me with a place in the semi final and now have advanced to the national final representing Camberley. I achieved 11 GCSE results, all A*- C grades and then went on to study A-levels where I achieved 3 A’s for Drama Media and Performing arts (where I received a 100% mark and came in the top 5 in the UK for my high marks) and B’s in English Literature and English language. For my whole teenage life I have worked hard at honing my acting skills, and one of my aims in life is to become a successful actor. I have taken part in many theatre productions, TV shows and films gaining some lead roles and ultimately in some achieving a positive critical acclaim.

Talents

I would like to think and hope I am a talented actress as this is my chosen career path! I also like to dabble in music and dance. I have danced from a young age and it is definitely a passion of mine and singing is a hobby that I truly enjoy. I am a real fitness freak too, and am a talented sports person, particularly in running and swimming. I am confident and I enjoy public speaking and would like to think that I am good at it.

Ambitions

Ambition is a trait that I possess fully. I am the most ambitious and determined person I know and it is often a quality I am remarked on. My current ambitions are to remain striving to succeed in acting. However, the ‘Miss England’ competition has come as a real surprise to me and I am overjoyed to be a part of it. I believe that you should always make the best of what you have and work your hardest to achieve what you believe is right for you. With regard to ‘Miss England’ this means seeing myself as an avid role model, which I do and putting my whole self and energy into working towards the title. I really believe England as a country which has so many good qualities and I am proud to be in the running to represent such a country. I would love to be given the opportunity to make a difference to people less fortunate than myself as I am overly compassionate. In the past I have been involved in volunteering and I have this kind of experience in hospitals and care units. I am currently proud to be in the running for potentially representing England, my home and my country.
