My Miss England Mission is to inspire and empower women to follow their dreams and have self belief.


My journey began when I was 16 years old with a sudden feeling of ‘I want to dance.’ Now, normally when dancing and wanting a professional career dancers start from the ages of 2-4 years. I entered a dance school and was incredibly behind with my movement, flexibility, musicality and confidence. I admired the other girls and was desperate to catch up so I trained every single day with the hopes I could catch up. Skip forward to two years later and I had opened my own dance school in which I put on award ceremonies, masterclasses, competitions and big production shows for my students.

Sadly, I gave up this dream when I fell ill in hospital and decided to stop dancing for while… in that time I felt like I needed a change of scenery and I went to Tenerife alone. During my first couple of months there I began posting some dances I was learning in classes, online and choreographing myself. After posting on my instagram I started receiving comments such as: ‘you’re not ready’, ‘this girl dances super weird,’ ‘someone needs to tell this girl she has no rhythm and doesn’t know how to dance’ … I was hurt by the comments but continued to do what I loved however during this time I started to suffer with my mental health and I was in and out of hospital many times with serve tachycardia and had other disheartening symptoms.

Skip forward to age 24 I found a new place of training but for Acrobatic gymnastics. I had NEVER in my life tried gymnastics…I was a dancer, for this I really had to pick up courage, have self belief and let go of my fears. I went to class and fell in LOVE. Fast forward to now myself at 27 years old and I’m performing stunts that gymnasts start learning when they are very young. I have also started back my passion of teaching again and one of my recent students, I told them I only started this sport 3 years ago and she said ‘WOW I thought you had been doing this your whole life’ I feel so proud of myself for overcoming my mental health illness whilst growing into the performer and teacher I am today. All I had to do was follow my dream and believe in myself. There’s a quote I love that says ‘your wings already exist, you just have to believe and fly. I hope I can inspire women to keep going and never give up! Chase that dream and believe in yourself!
