1. What year did you enter Miss England & did you enter more than once?
2011 was my first time and I competed in Miss Hertfordshire. I then competed in 2012 and Won Miss Hertfordshire which took me to the Miss England finals, and placed in the top 15. I competed for the last time in 2013 and Won Miss North London and then Miss England.
2. Which area did you represent in the Miss England final?
Miss North London and Hertfordshire
3. Was your family with you when you won the crown?
Yes all of my family were there supporting me, my mum, dad, sister, brother and Nan have always been there for me, and we’re all crying when my name was announced.
4. Was you studying or what did you do as a job when you won?
I worked in an office as an import broker at FedEx which was nice as I got to work with my sister. I was also part time modelling but didn’t have much confidence. Winning Miss England gave me confidence to go full time into my modelling and fulfil a successful career in commercial modelling.
6. Where did you travel to during your reign as Miss England
During the finals of Miss World Kirsty took part in a designer fashion show and on the right was on stage with boy band BLUE
8. Do you still keep in touch with any of the contestants from Miss World, if so who?
9. What was your favourite or most memorable Miss England appearance
I think Going to Mauritius was an incredible trip.
It was like a paradise and I felt extremely lucky to go. I also was an ambassador for Variety children’s charity and handed over Sunshine coaches for the children who needed extra support for learning and travelling. It was such a heartwarming experience meeting them.
During Kirstys year , she presented a holiday home with Miss & Mr World to the THNN Charity in Torbay which was paid for by BEAUTY WITH A PURPOSE funds raised by the Miss England finalists , see more on the Beauty with a Purpose page
I am still modelling as I love it so much however I love science and beauty and so mixed them together and have been training to become an Aesthetic Practitioner for the last couple of years.
