Now, where do I start without rambling on…my name is Elli James, I am 18 years old and I live in Cornwall with my mother and sister. This is my second pageant. I already hold Miss Southwest runner-up 2018 from the Miss England pageant. I am a qualified beauty therapist and an electro therapist in training. I am a young carer for my mother who has Addisons disease which is an adrenal gland disorder. Being on stage fills me with confidence and who doesn’t love looking like a princess? As well as supporting the two chosen charities, I am also fundraising for the Addisons disease self-help group, as there is currently no cure. I know I will gain many valuable experiences and friends out of this pageant and I can not wait till the finals.
