In this week's column, Cromer's 'Face of Norwich', Elisha Hudson talks us through her latest pageant success...
Face of Europe and the world is a charity pageant and the 1st original pageant to be held at Disneyland Paris.
They believe that beauty come from within and they inspire you to reach full potential both on stage and in your personal life.
They encourage you to help others and raise awareness for charity’s to achieve your own dreams.
I became Face of Norwich in February 2018, this means I will be representing Norwich at the Face of Europe and the world in November 2018.
As the Face of Norwich I have chosen to raise money and awareness for my own chosen charity Brain Tumour Research and also I have committed to raising money and awareness of the pageants chosen charity which is Headway Kent.
As from now until October I have the the chance to make appearances with my sash and crown, raise money for both charity’s and helping others achieve their dreams.
I chose BTR as my charity because in March 2017 I was diagnosed with a glioma brain tumour and now having 6 monthly scans due to the tumour being in a difficult place for the hospital to operate at the moment.
This charity needs more funding to help research the causes of this awful cancer.
The pageants chosen charity is Headway Kent, this charity is very close to the owner of Face of Europe and world and we all raise money and awareness for all great causes.
Being able to go to Face of Europe and world is a dream, I’m not there to win it, I am there to represent Norwich, my home and where I’ve lived all my life.
My aim is to raise money and awareness of these charity’s but also to prove to everyone that by helping others leads you to helping yourself.
This pageant and all my charity work has kept me busy and kept my mind off having a brain tumour so by me helping others is actually helping me too.
I’m looking for business sponsors to back/support me through my journey whether that’s sponsor money, donating my dress or shoes this all helps the more sponsors I get the more money we can put towards the charities.
Remember I’m representing Norwich!
