I have had an amazing 9 months as the Miss Voluptuous Ambassador Queen. I have taken part in so many different opportunities, I have learnt a lot and hopefully really made a difference
Over the last few months I have enjoyed joining in campaigns and events from other systems including the Headshot fundraiser ran by Mrs Ireland Galaxy, Charlotte Clemmie, Charity events ran by Miss Voluptuous finalists such as Melissa and Lauren, as well as traveling all over the UK to speak up about my platform and what it means to me.
I have been lucky to be invited to contribute to various media outlets to tell my story – of both the pageant and My platform – having taken part in a Channel 4 documentary, newspaper articles, Radio interviews and Celebrity podcasts.
I have travelled as far as Brighton to cheer on Friends running the Brighton Marathon for my platform – CoppaFeel, up to Durham to distribute Easter eggs to sick children and the elderly in hospital with the Galaxy Queens, and up to Newcastle to spread to word about the importance of boob checking.
As it nears time for me to hand over I am sad to go. I have had an amazing time and enjoyed every minute of it. I hope that the incoming queens are ready to really push themselves in working as hard as they can for the system and for their platform.
Its such a blessing to be given the opportunity to make real change and be given the responsibility to represent the system. The time has gone so quickly and looking ack I am glad that I managed to fit so much in, although as ever there is so much more I wish I could have done. I would advise the new Queens to treasure every minute as it goes so fast.
Come October I will no longer be the Miss Voluptuous Ambassador Queen however I am hugely excited for new challenges and projects in the pipeline and certainly will not be disappearing any time soon. Of course I will still champion my platform as Breast Cancer Awareness especially in those under 35 is so important. With 1 in 8 women and 400 men a year diagnosed it’s so important that everyone is diagnosed at the earliest opportunity where treatment is more successful and less invasive. It sounds cheesy but knowing your boobs really can save your life, and I hope that over that my reign I have been able to spread that message to as many people as possible
Huge thanks to the Miss Voluptuous System for an amazing year!
