Introducing Alice Ghorst – The new Junior Miss Cumbria 2015.
Hi all, I’m Alice Ghorst the newly crowned Junior Miss Cumbria 2015.
Last weekend I was crowned Junior Miss Cumbria 2015/16, it was such a big shock to me and still hasn’t quite sunk in yet. I just thought I’d introduce myself you to all go let you’s get to know me a bit better!
I’m 16 years old and I’m from Little Orton just outside of Carlisle. I’m a very active person who likes to be out and about, playing hockey on Sunday’s and training on Tuesday nights. I also enjoy dancing and attend Razzamataz Theatre Schools Carlisle on a Saturday where I also volunteer to be a classroom assistant with primary aged school children.
I love to help others out and see them enjoy something that I enjoy too. I’m a country girl and love the outdoors, you can’t beat the fresh air! I live at home with my Mum Joanne, Dad Paul and sister Hollie! I’m not really an animal person yet we dogs, chickens and ferrets!
This year in April will be the fourth year I haven’t ate chocolate, after giving it up for lent back in 2011. I’m a very determined girl that won’t give up once I’ve set my mind on something! You just have to believe in yourself!
I love performing arts and have performed at Her Majesty’s theatre in London’s West End three times. It has been so much fun which I recommended to anyone if you get the chance to do it don’t say no! My last performance was in November last year when I found out I was in the finals for Junior Miss Cumbria.
I entered the competition because I thought it was something different for me to do, and sounded so exciting. I just entered one day and forgot all about it until when I got a text off Mark saying I was in the finals! I couldn’t believe it and was ready to set myself a challenge! I didn’t go in for the winning because it’s not all about the winning.
I went in the competition because I wanted to give it a go and to see what it had for me! From raising money for such a superb charity to making my Eco dress and meeting all the team and contestants, I absolutely loved every second of it. I thought it’d be lovely to come out of the competition with something, which I did, but I couldn’t believe that that something was the winning title!!! It’s still a huge shock to me and hasn’t sunk in yet, I couldn’t be any happier.
I totally recommend entering any competition like this even if you aren’t confident because I have made so many new friends and had such a great time, you’ll enjoy it just as much as I did, whether you win or not!
I’d like to say a big congratulations to everyone in the competition – you all looked beautiful and should be proud of yourselves!
I hope you enjoyed my first blog, next time I hope to post a vlog! Keep posted and watch out for it in the coming weeks.
Love Alice, your new Junior Miss Cumbria 2015 xxxxxx
