After winning the title, she said “I feel like I am on another planet. It doesn’t feel real yet. I did it the year before and came seventh so I came back this year and improved on what I had done the year before. I took my nutrition and body a bit more seriously this time around. I wanted to uplift people and encourage them to embrace their bodies and be themselves.”

She hopes to inspire a new generation of girls after being crowned as the winner of Miss Great Britain and to spread more awareness about mental health issues and is keen to inspire as many girls in Hull to take part in beauty pageants.

Her views on beauty pageants are  “Beauty pageants can get bad press but the confidence you get from them and the support from all the girls means that you have the most amazing time. You come out of them as a different person and I would encourage anyone to go for it personally. It gives you that vote of confidence and it is amazing to have people believe in you. The whole experience will be just fantastic."
