Miss Leighton Buzzard Galaxy will be competing for the UK title on Sunday, February 8.

Mwaka Grace, of Pear Tree Lane, won the local crown in October, she had to talk about herself, model and show the judges her best walk.

The 24-year-old experienced her first pageant last year, she came first runner up and won Miss Popularity at Miss Bedfordshire.

She said: “I really enjoy the pageants and the build up to them, I love dressing up, meeting the other girls and raising money for charity.

“We organised a dance and did some singing in the streets in Lancashire to raise money for The Christie Cancer Charity, it was really fun.”

Ms Grace has bought her dress for the finals and is looking forward to the pageant.

She told the LBO: “I hope to go all the way to Miss Galaxy International, which is in the USA in the summer.”
