Helen is 25-years-old and feels that no one should ever give up on their dreams and work twice as harder as they were and everything, they have dreamt off will come towards them. She is not new to pageantry as she was the part of Miss Earth Northern Ireland 2018 and her advocacy focused on Animal Rescue and Puppy Farming. ‘End cruelty, stop puppy farming,’ was her motto.

The diva personally feels and has expressed that when people hear the term, ‘beauty pageant’, they think that its all about look buy that is a misconception as the organization looks over everything including a delegate’s attitude, intelligence, communication, and aim to compete at a beauty pageant before selecting them. They need a powerful and impactful personality to represent a country and if she wins the crown. She has a degree in performing arts from Northern Regional College Ballymoney and is very determined to win the pageant.

For Helen, beauty pageant is about empowerment and self-confidence and strongly feels that beauty can be found in so many things and she is always in search of beauty in little things. According to her beauty pageant are about the entire personality of a diva and she is excited and honoured that Miss Grand Scotland has trusted her with the title.
