Paige Rees - Miss Wales 2018 finalist & Miss Torfaen 2018
Applying for Miss Wales was a very "spur of the moment" kind of thing for me. I have never done anything like this before and really put myself outside of my comfort zone. I had my expectations of and I was very nervous to meet everyone â€“ however I soon found out being involved in pageants is nothing but rewarding. You get to learn new skills, develop your confidence, become a role model and also meet new people. It is a wonderful experience where you get to be glamorous as well as making a difference by raising awareness and money. Being a Miss Wales finalist has been one of my favourite experiences so far. Not only have I have grown in confidence and as a person but I have also been able to raise money for a wonderful charity at the same time! I have met some absolutely wonderful women who are so inspiring, welcoming and kind â€“ I would recommend it to anyone! It is amazing experience that I will always remember fondly. Thank you to all the people involved in the Miss Wales competition for making sure special and rewarding memories!
