I play the violin. I love learning History as it teaches us a variety of different things, including the past, present, and future. I want to inspire others to learn about history as it can teach you many of things including your heritage and roots. As my roots are varied from Irish, African, Scottish and English.

"I have lost both my parents as a teenager, which made me experience a lot of hardships. In the process, I have learned to be grateful for life, counting my blessings and privileges everyday and became very empathetic towards the underprivileged, since I had a close brush with my change in fate. My experiences have made me wise, courageous, independent and extremely resilient. I have learned to see the silver lining and tackle every situation life throws at me with positivity. Miss World through Miss England would provide me with the platform to use my opportunities and voice to increase access to healthcare in rural areas around the world including menstrual equity and mental health. I'm a swimmer, basketball player, athlete and trained in Indian vocals. I have overcome my once crippling fear of public-speaking through several Model UN conferences, having been a director for two. Self taught in both Indian classical and western dance, I have represented Manchester and my school in dance competitions."

I want to make a difference and I want to represent young women to show that Miss Lancashire can embody many different qualities and values with humanity being a core value. I also feel I stand with pride to represent my county and my passion of advocating and celebrating young women and their success. I Would love to own my own dance class in the future.

Esme Holiday who was sponsored by a “Skye Full of Stars charity” in the Miss Manchester & Miss England contest is going to be a judge for the Manchester heat of Miss England.
Esme Holiday is the reigning Miss Manchester and was sponsored by a "Skye Full of Stars" in the Miss Manchester & Miss England contest.
"This Charity is very close to my heart and it meant the world to me for them to be part of my pageant journey." said Esme.
"Skye was a true pageant girl with as much beauty on the inside as the outside. Skye my friend always wanted me to take part in contests with her but tragically she passed away in 2017 before we ever got the chance.
After lots of fundraising for the charity and encouraging words from Skye’s family I decided to take that leap of faith and apply for Miss Manchester in 2020 which lead me to having my place in The Miss England Finals in 2021.
The craziest thing throughout all of this is between me taking part in these contests , I landed my first dream job in television production. Now almost a year later I am still working in TV building connections. I have even travelled to Italy through work.
I still love supporting A Skye Full of Stars and I’m looking forward to what the future holds. Not only has Miss England contest given me the confidence to reach for the stars I will never forget this truly magical experience where I got the opportunity for Skye to shine down and watch me walk in her shoes."
