It all began with the thoughts running through my head of “Ambition is the first step to success, the second step is action.”
I have never had any beauty pageant or modelling experience before, but I have always known it was something I dreamt repeatedly of going into at some point. I have never had any confidence within myself, I most definitely thought I’d never be good enough to be where I am today, until I decided to make one of the best decisions I have made and to apply for Miss Wales 2016.
I remember the day I received an email congratulating me of my application on being successful, my heart was racing full of happiness and my eyes were filling up because I couldn’t believe the amazing opportunity that was given to me.
The experience that I have had so far will be unforgettable, astonishing and most definitely unique! I don’t want it to end so soon, it’s all a dream come true! Pageantry isn’t a choice for everybody, but I wish people would see that it is so much more than just wearing a beautiful dress and looking gorgeous on stage. A big part of Miss Wales is about “empowering young women by building their self esteem and generating money for good causes through Beauty with a Purpose”, which is a very important part to remember.
I think that all the beautiful and warm hearted ladies in the whole of Wales should definitely consider applying for 2017, I can promise you that you will not regret it! I feel so lucky to be one of the forty ladies to be in this year’s competition.There is about a month until the final arrives and my heart races every time I think about it each day, it is going to be three days I will remember for the rest of my life! I can’t wait to see how heavenly and glamorous each one of the ladies are going to look, it is going to be an amazing experience.
