Beauties aim for contest success

TWO Llanelli beauties are looking to put the town on the map as they aim to become the next Miss Great Britain International.

Twenty-three-year-old Cassandra Broom, from Llanelli, has entered the regional heats of the Miss Great Britain International competition.

Cassandra, who works as a stage manager at Llanelli’s Once Upon a Time theatre company, said she is excited about entering the competition.

“It is run by the Joshua Foundation and I think it is a really great charity,” she said.

“It will be a very nerve-wracking event, but all the girls are very friendly so I am looking forward to it.”

The former Coleg Sir Gâr student, who graduated from Swansea Met University in Performing Arts earlier this year, added: “I would love to get to the finals in Chicago, but I am very happy to take part in the regional heats and represent Carmarthenshire.”

And 19-year-old Nadia Suliman from Bryn will take part in the Miss Teen International Great Britain competition.

Nadia, a former St John Lloyd School pupil, is currently studying a law degree at Bristol UWE.

The regional heats will be held in the Porthcawl Pavilion on the January 26, and the UK final will take place in April next year.

The winners of Miss Great Britain International and Miss Teen International Great Britain will both gain an all expenses paid place at the international finals held every year in Chicago.

They will also win a wardrobe of clothes for the competition, a designer dress, hair and beauty makeovers and a series of ambassadorial overseas visits to Australia, Lapland and Mongolia with the pageant’s support charity The Joshua Foundation.

Once the girls have qualified for the final they are challenged to raise money and awareness for Cardiff-based children’s charity The Joshua Foundation.
