Charlotte Thomas is Miss World Natural Beauty Ambassador 2016!
I entered my first pageant, as I had seen some pageants in the media, and they looked really fun and a great way to make new friends!
Taking part in pageants also looked like an excellent platform for charity fundraising, which is something that I had always wanted to do.
It also looked really glamorous (as lots of girls love dressing up and doing their hair and make up), and because I already loved being on stage when I was singing and dancing, pageants looked right up my street.
I had also been really badly bullied in school, and as I noticed pageants just after I left school, I thought that doing pageants would improve my confidence, which they did.
