BEAUTY queen wannabe Sophie Wilkins wants to use her looks to help others.
The 19-year-old of Valley Park Drive, Clanfield, has entered the regional heats of the Miss England competition.
The Hampshire beauty said: ‘It is my first time entering so I am very excited to have been selected.
‘I’m a bit anxious about what to expect but it’s a good anxious.’
The Miss Hampshire competition is a regional heat of Miss England, whose winners go on to compete in Miss World.
‘I have always been interested in Miss World, I love how determined and inspirational the contestants are and how they help others,’ added Sophie.
‘I would love to be a good role model for people and an ambassador for education.
‘I would like to inspire people at every opportunity.’
As part of the pageant’s focus on beauty with a purpose, Miss Hampshire is looking for contestants who are charitable as well as beautiful.
Sophie volunteers as a DJ at Express FM.
She has previously worked at The Kings Theatre, in Albert Road, Southsea, where she organised a family fun day.
