Kiah- Ultimate Natural Beauty Queen of the Year
Welcome Kiah, can you tell us a little more about your title?
My title is Ultimate Natural Beauty Queen of the Year. I prepared for internationals
by travelling over 20,000 miles all over England, Scotland and Wales to attend
appearances representing the Natural Beauty System. I raised over £2,500 for
Abbie’s Army and Giddos Gift. I raised the money by holding Miss Easter Sparkle
charity pageants in Wigan, running photo competitions, bag packing in Tesco’s
and holding raffles and tombola stalls at events.
Can you tell us the highlights of the international finals, they looked amazing!
The highlight of the internationals was the Hawaiian party on the first night because it was great to have everyone together for the first time.
I didn’t expect to place at the internationals and when I made the top 2 in my age group I was so proud of myself and my achievement. I was shocked and filled with joy to hear my name called for the Ultimate Natural Beauty Queen of the Year after the judges had selected me for this title as every girl had worked very hard on the lead up to the international competition.
What plans do you have with your title now you have won?
For the rest of the year I have a lot of events planned to hold and attend to raise money and
awareness of the charities and the Natural Beauty System. I also have plans to visit Ireland
so I will have taken my crown and sash to all corners of the UK and also visit The Gambia to
show all my family, friends and sponsor Aminata. I am very lucky that I get to compete
again in 2020 to get a second chance of the title, so I am super excited to plan my outfits!
Do you have a charity or platform as a pageant queen?
I supported Abbie’s Army, Giddos gift and daughters of The Gambia throughout my journey and I will continue to support and raise awareness of these charities throughout my reigning year. I also plan to continue with my shipments of clothes, toys, stationary and medications to The Gambia.
One more thing before you go, can you tell us some advice for new pageant queens?
My advice for the new queens is to work hard, be prepared, have fun, be yourself and cherish every friendship and memory you make.
