Stephanie Hill is an English singer, actress, model, dancer, and beauty pageant titleholder who won Miss England 2017. She represented England at Miss World 2017 held in Sanya, China on 18th November 2017 and was adjudged as the second runner-up at the end of the event finale. She is going to compete at Miss Universe Great Britain 2020.

Born in Derby, Stephanie has recently graduated as Master of Science (Research) as well and shared her sheer happiness via social media. The diva who is a front runner for the title of Miss Universe United Kingdom 2020, shared a picture of her on social media with a caption, “It's not our traditional graduation, but hopefully one day I can grace my green hood lined with cerise for my faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health, graduating with my Master's in Translational Oncology! For now, my lockdown graduation will have to do, but the celebrations are no less.”



Stephanie is currently working at the world-renowned Sheffield Children's Hospital delivering clinical trials; she is delivering Urgent Public Health COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence studies, analysing how the virus behaves asymptomatically in children and young adults. The diva will continue her academic career and pursue her PhD in Cancer Research in future. Stephanie has previous experience in this field having worked as a Clinical Trials Assistant at the Sheffield Cancer Clinical Trials Centre.

The diva has already worked towards raising awareness about Feminine Hygiene with her Beauty with a Purpose project in 2017 and now wants to focus on women empowerment along with raising awareness about Cancer. Stephanie is a multi-hyphenate being a singer, equestrian, and a trained ballroom dancer. She can speak in British Sign Language as well as French and is musical, playing the flute and guitar.

Stephanie’s extremely positive and hopeful attitude towards life is appreciated by everyone around her and this is showcased in one of her post she shared on the last day of the previous year, where she mentioned, “I am leaving the year with hope. Regardless of what you believe, it is without doubt we have witnessed history-making feats of science. We have seen communities estranged for decades come together to support each other in such unprecedented times. We've seen incredible acts of compassion, humility, and respect, and we've seen global support for ground-breaking movements that will benefit populations that have deserved better for centuries. I am exceedingly grateful to have health, a wonderful, relevant and timely professional position, and a look to the future for my purpose and aspirations.”



The front runner and a strong contender at Miss Universe Great Britain 2020 mentioned that she is a purpose-driven individual, and obtains great pleasure from using her skills and expertise for fundraising and assisting within the global community. She created ‘The Magical Memories Foundation’, an initiative that uses performers as popular fictional characters to ‘create magical memories for children and their families’ who are burdened with upsetting circumstances.

The diva is strong, confident, and very focused towards winning and her graduating with a master’s degree has just added some more push to her life towards her goal. The pageant was rescheduled to 19th December 2020 and delayed once again hours before the event was to start due to the new strain of virus detected in Southeast England. The organization is yet to announce anything further on the hosting of the pageant.
