Sarah Hulyer is determined to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illness. The public speaker, who'll be competing for the crown of Miss England 2018, built her pageant platform from life experience.
She has co-chaired her own parliamentary round table about putting mental health on the national curriculum, sat with Prime Minister Theresa May to discuss the necessary changes needed to improve young mental health, and even worked with the young royals: TRH the Duke of Sussex (Prince Harry) and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate Middleton) on their mental health campaign - "I have dedicated over four years of my life to campaigning, telling my story, and trying to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. I have spoken at schools up and down the country, been interviewed on shows like Good Morning Britain and sat on important panels for the BBC and many other important organisations" - she explained.
If she wins the crown Sarah will have the opportunity to represent England at Miss World 2018 later this year in China. Several Miss England contestants had almost clinched an international crown for England, placing in the 1st runner-up position for five times; once in Miss Universe, and twice each in Miss World (as Miss United Kingdom) and Miss Europe.
Did you know ? In 2017, Stephanie Hill represented England at Miss World 2017 and became the first English delegate to make the top 3 in the competition by placing as the 2nd runner-up. Hill was also awarded the title of Miss World Europe after being the European contestant with the highest scores.
