The A Level teacher said: “I am extremely excited and proud to be representing my home county, and I hope I make Bedfordshire proud.
“I am also really excited to get stuck into my Miss Bedfordshire duties so I can support the charities supported with Miss Bedfordshire/Miss England, and those close to my heart and to make the community of Bedfordshire a better place.
“I believe that I have been an amazing role model to my students in school, and I am hoping to extend this and be a role model for all young people in the community, and show them to never give up on their dreams.”
