Interesting Fact
On 07/08/22 I swam 100 laps in 75mins for my charity swim for BWAP! For the past 10 years my mother and I have been a part of the Indian Ladies club. It is a club which helps the Indian ladies diaspora in the UK mingle with one another and form beautiful friendships. A lot of the ladies who attend the events are elderly and have no family of their own in England. So when it comes to the big Indian festivals such as Diwali and Vaisakhi they have nobody to celebrate with. Therefore, as a club we try to hold events every year for these special festivals giving the ladies an opportunity to make beautiful memories with the other members and not feel alone. I attend every event so that I can show the ladies our generation of young Indian ladies have not forgotten them and want to maintain the link! This club has done wonders for the Indian ladies mental well being and I am proud to be a young Indian lady and a part of this wonderful club

Interesting fact: After both my parents as a teenager, I experienced a lot of hardships. In the process, I have learned to be grateful for life, counting my privileges 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. Miss World through Miss England would provide me with the platform to use my opportunities and voice to increase awareness 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 and directed two Model UN conferences. Self taught in both Indian classical and western dance, I have represented Manchester and my school in dance competitions.

The Chocolate Face

3 weeks ago

By Paul Wayne Gregory 
Chocolatier 
Today was the first part of the creation of the chocolate face of Miss England.  It’s a real pleasure to be able use my skills to create a life size bust of her face, let me tell you about the process.
Part 1: The cast is created with liquid plastics, the same as making a cast for a film or for creating a bronze statue.
Part 2: From the cast a second cast is created so the finished product is food safe.
Part 3 : From the food grade cast the base chocolate cast is created. This base gives me the shape of her face, and then real work starts! Carving by hand her features, i.e. nose, eyes, etc.
Part 4: The transportation and reveal of the chocolate face will be at the final.
I’m really looking forward to the next stage and finishing the chocolate face in time for the final, where for the first time Miss England will see it completed in full.
Wish me luck!

MEET THE ROCKET SCIENTIST CROWNED MISS LANCASHIRE TWICE!

2 months ago

Jess received Beautiful Brow gifts from Erin Rattigan, brand manager- Beautiful Brows who gifted all the contestants on the day Photo by Flawless Photography Studios

 

Jessica Gagen, 26, from Skelmersdale, is a budding rocket scientist, currently in her final year of an integrated masters degree in aerospace engineering, and was recently awarded the title of Miss Lancashire 2022 at Flawless Photography studios in Manchester.

 

 

Judges included Julie Salter , marketing manager for Flawless studios , Miss Manchester 21 Esme Holiday , Erin Rattigan, Brand Manager from Beautiful Brows , and singer songwriter Natasha Hemmings Miss England 2015.

 

Jessica is extremely passionate about showcasing engineering careers to girls, and does so by visiting schools, attending events, featuring on podcasts and creating content to help school girls realise the potential the subject holds for them, after realising she was one of the only 10% of girls in her classes at the university of Liverpool

Outside of her degree, Jess is also an internationally signed fashion model, and has worked for brands including Matalan, Grazia Magazine and boohoo.com across the UK, Europe and Middle East.

Jess placed as first runner up in the 2021 Miss England Contest, representing her home county of Lancashire, and decided to compete again in 2022 to empower redheads after a story about her being picked on in school for having ginger hair went viral across international media.

Speaking on Instagram in April, Jess said: “There has never been a ginger Miss England, and there might never be a ginger Miss England – but I am happy to be the person to stand in the face of defeat once more if it means I can empower redheads being bullied in school for their hair colour along the way”

“After university, I’d love to become a children’s TV presenter and educate kids about what engineering involves through the media, because when I was younger, I didn’t know”

Jess lives in Liverpool and is known locally as Fancy Dress Jess, after running 5km every day for 96 days in fancy dress in 2021 to raise money for the Miss World Beauty with a Purpose Charity, which helps disadvantaged children worldwide.
“This year I’m kicking off my charity efforts on the 13th August by taking part in the national 3 peaks challenge, where I’ll be climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon within 24hrs, dressed in fancy dress. After this I’ll be starting the consecutive days of 5km running in fancy dress once more”

Jess was crowned Miss Lancashire 2022 on the 10th August and will be competing in the Miss England national final on October 17th, held at the Heart of England Conference and Events Centre. If Jess manages to win the national title, she’ll become the first redhead in history to represent England in the 71st Miss World Final.
