Amy was one of twenty-four finalists introduced by compere Darren Daley of vibe fm who took to the stage in a bid to become the next ambassador for Wales.
The contestants took part in three rounds in front of a panel of six judges including former Miss Wales and Miss World 1974, Helen Morgan.
The 21 year old trainee architect said, ‘I am absolutely thrilled with the result. This has been one of the best nights of my life and I am looking forward to representing Wales at Miss World’.
Amy is a keen horse rider having competed at both the Royal Windsor and Gatcombe International Horse-show and also appearing on Blue Peter to teach the presenters to horse ride. She also dreams of designing her own house.
Jessica Davey of Tonypandy took second place and third place went to Michelle Sheehan of Swansea.
Paula Abbandonato, of event organisers Vibe PR said, ‘All of the girls who took part in this years competition should feel proud of themselves as they put on a brilliant show. They were fantastic’.
The competition has attracted top sponsorship from Cardiff-based, Cellite Clinic, who have devised a package of benefits and treatments to support Amy in her year as Miss Wales.
The prize package for Miss Wales 2004 is better than ever before with vibe fm – the regional radio station for South Wales and the South West – coming on board with an all-expenses-paid shopping trip to New York for the winner.
As well as her vibe fm shopping trip, Miss Wales 2004 will also win a package of goodies including clothes from Fab and Elinor Franklin, shoes from Brantano, a year’s hair dressing and beauty products from Lara Johnson Lifestyle, as well as the month long visit to China to compete in Miss World 2004.
