Miss Teesside – Sarah Gething, a 26 year old Teacher from Middlesbrough was crowned Miss Teesside and went on to win Miss Publicity at the Miss Great Britain finals.
‘It’s been an amazing experience from start to finish. The moment my name was read out on the night I was overcome with so many emotions, crying, smiling, laughing, but most of all I felt proud of myself, not only for winning but for the money I managed to raise for the Butterwick Hospice. One of the things that I want to do while I am Miss Teesside is change the perception of what it is to be a model and show young girls that images that appear on social media and magazines are not always as they seem. There’s a lot of pressure on young girls to look and behave in a certain way and I want to be able to show them that there are other alternatives.’
