A model from Bedford is asking people to vote for her in the next stage of the Miss England competition.
Shanice Sandhu, 21, is one of 18 contestants competing in the second semi-final heat for the title of Miss England 2018.
The public vote acts as one judge on the panel and at least one winner will go forward to take part in the Miss England semi-final in June.
Shanice said: “I’ve been modelling for about a year now and I feel this is the next step for me to participate in the Miss England competition and I’m honoured to currently be in it. I’ve modelled in Asian bridal magazines and done catwalks in London.
“I also took part in a charity fashion show where all the funds went to the people in Aleppo.
“I’ve always been passionate about women’s refuges and with this platform I hope to get their voices heard and make people aware of what women in domestic violence/abusive homes are going through to get them the right accommodation/treatment needed.
Shanice, who also speaks south Asian languages, will be spending time raising awareness and funds for the Miss World Charity ‘Beauty with a Purpose’.
