Lauren is 24-years-old and is very passionate about being a beauty queen. Lauren originally entered pageantry after a violent assault forced her to return home and rebuild her life and herself from scratch. It's one of the reasons why she is so passionate about beauty pageants and the platform it provides so that she can advocate about stopping violence.

The diva is not new to the world of beauty pageants as she participated in Miss Grand Wales 2018 and was crowned as the winner at the end of the event finale. She represented Wales at Miss Grand International 2018 but unfortunately, wasn’t placed. She feels that the experience and knowledge she had gained during her reign as Miss Grand Wales 2018 will help shape up her career in the pageantry better.

Lauren is beautiful, intelligent, and very determined to represent Wales at Miss World 2020. She feels that being in a pageant is one of the most prestigious things she has ever received as the pageants help women feel encouraged, empowered and work on themselves for their future. The platform is an apt way to advocate about the social causes the queen feels connected to and with their hard work and understanding they can make a difference in the society.

The diva wants to travel and advocate about her cause which is to raise awareness about the violence that takes place in the world. She wants to help people who have been a victim to violent attack just like her and help them to get back on their feet and work toward achieving something that they are proud off. She has always dreamt of representing Wales at international level and when she did during Miss Grand International 2018, she mentioned, “I take pride in being a good role model for the younger generation and I hope that one day they will also want to represent their country in such a prestigious international pageant.”

Lauren wants to be a good and positive role model for the women and children out there who are let down by the society and encourage them to stand up. She feels thankful for all the opportunities she has been a part of. With her beautiful smile, Lauren can win over anyone’s heart but her strong performance would help her win the title Miss Wales 2020 and an opportunity to represent Wales at Miss World 2020. She is beautiful, talented, and intelligent. She has worked very hard to be here and is dedicated to win the title. Lauren has started to prepare for the competition as she has started to work on her walk and communication and interview skills. She wants to be a strong role model for her fans and wants to reach out to various other people across the globe.
