WHAT DO YOU MOST LIKE ABOUT GIBRALTAR:  

Gibraltar is very rich in History and is also a very multicultured society. Every corner has a significant historical value. Everyone knows everyone, so the community is very close no matter what race or religion. I also love the spectacular views. 

WHY HAVE YOU ENTERED THE PAGEANT: 
 
I have always dreamt about entering since I was young. Over the years I have taken part in pageants and fashion shows in which I have enjoyed as a hobby. Knowing that Miss Gibraltar is one of the most professional pageants on the Rock, it is a step further than what I’m used to but I’m always up for a challenge!

WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE MISS GIBRALTAR
 
First and foremost to put Gibraltar on the map, but most importantly to break the typical stigma of being a Beauty Queen as the majority of people think that it is all about being pretty but in reality, it is so much more than that.
