Lauren Malone- In her own words

I live, was born and raised in London, by a single mum who often worked 7 days a week. I attended a full-time theatre school from age of 10-16 having loved performing and music from an early age. I performed in a variety of theatre shows, singing soprano, mezzo soprano, alto, acting and dancing ballet, tap, Jazz, contemporary and street/hip-hop. I always loved acting and attained a Distinction in my Performing Arts BTEC Level 2 Diploma when I was 15 years old and was the only pupil in my year to be awarded a A* in my Expressive Arts GCSE. I was awarded a Distinction with 90/100 in the improvisation from the chief examiner of Trinity Guildhall School of Art and Drama for my Grade 7 Speech and Drama exam. Reciting monologues from Viola in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Hilary, in Debbie Issit’s, The Woman Who cooked her Husband and Arkadina in Checkhov’s, The Seagull.

Before the last year of my theatre school, I decided to leave due to being badly bullied the few years previously. I completed the rest of my GCSE’s independently and attained high grades, nevertheless. Loving fashion, I was lucky to have been a London Fashion Week Intern for Roksanda Illinic during my 1st year of A Levels.

After excelling in my A Level studies, I pursued Economics at university where I graduated with a 1 st Class honours degree. I further graduated with a master’s degree in finance from Imperial College London. Where I completed 14 different challenging modules in 1 year. Attaining distinctions in modules such as Corporate Finance, MATLAB applied to Finance. Merits in Advanced Company Valuation, Advanced Corporate Finance and Mergers and Acquisitions. As well as a high Merit, 2% from a Distinction in my Corporate Investment applied Project. After my master’s I worked briefly inConsulting and then in Business Development for 4 years in Health and Beauty start-ups.

Throughout my Master studies in Imperial, I attended many Investment Banking networking events where I was inspired by Women in leadership positions leading by example and making a difference in a male dominated industry. I always wanted to make an impact and a difference myself. Thus, I decided to recently create my own Indie natural cosmetics company called Beautiful Me World. To help promote natural beauty and healthy natural skin care products to tackle unsustainable in-organic beauty regimes.

Why I would like to be Miss England

I first discovered Miss England when Melissa Raouf the current Top Model Bare Face Winner, went globally viral for the bareface trend movement. Know by family, friends, and colleagues for wearing no make-up myself daily, I decided to enter Miss England with a bare faced beach selfie. As I wanted to make a difference myself and gain a bigger platform to do so to inspire and influence other women. By promoting natural beauty with no make-up selfies, no filter posts and encourage body positivity. I was the first Semi-finalist to qualify after winning the virtual Heat 1 public vote. After being invited to compete in Miss London’s first ever Bare Face competition, I won the bare face public vote, where I became a Miss England Finalist.

If I was lucky enough to win Miss England, my primary goal would be to spread the importance of helping others and being charitable to make the world a better place. By helping others, we need to find our strength and purpose. As part of entering Miss England, I was dedicated to make a difference by using my platform as a finalist to raise awareness and help those in need by taking part in the Beauty with a Purpose fundraising round.

The beauty with a purpose ethos in Miss World  & Miss
England, is one of the most important aspects of the competition that I educated hundreds of people about during my fundraising efforts. Where I raised over £1300 for Beauty with a Purpose Miss World’s Charity and Miss England’s partner charity Papyrus the Prevention of Young Suicide.

By completing a sponsored Ultra Challenges 25km Thames Bridges Trek across 16 different bridges on the hottest day in September 2023. I also obtained sponsorships from the Mayors of Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond, Islington, Camden, and Barnet. Currently as a Miss England finalist, I am using my platform to spread as much awareness as possible for Balls to Cancer and have fundraised just under £1500 so far with more to come. If I was lucky enough to win Miss England, I would want to help more cancer charities as its affected so many people globally.

Additionally, in my research of the Miss England Competition, I was shocked to discover that in the last 40 years, there has never been a Miss England finalist crowned under 5 ft 7 inches tall. This inspired me to want to make a breakthrough and be the first to represent England in Miss World under 5ft7.

To pave the way and inspire other girls who are also are under 5 ft 7 inches tall. I am 5 ft 5 tall but have the average leg length of women of 5ft 9 with an inner leg length of 30.5 inches. There is so much more to a women’s beauty than height which is just one physical aspect. Also, the average UK women height is 5 ft 3/5 ft 4, therefore its important point to highlight as a deciding factor in the Miss England competition to promote inclusivity and realistic beauty standards.”
