Mental health ambassador crowned Miss Intercontinental UK
Romy Simpkins won the title of Miss Intercontinental UK 2020/21 after taking part in a virtual competition.
Contestants took part in an online interview and were asked to submit videos of their evening-wear and swimwear to be scored by the judges.
Romy is set to compete at Miss Intercontinental later this year and represent the United Kingdom internationally.
At present the destination and date is unknown due to the pandemic.
In previous years, the pageant has taken place in countries such as Egypt and the Philippines.
The UK has not won Miss Intercontinental since the 1970’s.
Ms Simpkins says: “My aim as a titleholder is to continue my #theredflags campaign which is about spotting the signs of coercive control and narcissistic behaviour.
“I hope to educate more people about the impact this type of abuse can have on a survivors mental health and what we as a society can do to put a stop to domestic abuse.
“As an Ask Me Ambassador for Women’s Aid, my role is to listen to those who have experienced domestic abuse or family and friends who are concerned for someone.
“I aim to provide them with the necessary information on how to access professional support and to be that listening ear.”
Romy is studying to become a psychotherapist and wants to continue her work in the mental health sector.
Miss Intercontinental UK will be holding a live grand final on Saturday 20th November at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Liverpool.
Romy will crown her successors who will be representing the UK in next year’s international final.
