Miss Derbyshire Curve 2016; Stef.
Name: Stef Dixon
Which area are you representing?
I have been with my boyfriend for 2 years
What made you want to enter MBBC? I went to The Curve Fashion Festival and met all the ladies. I didn't think I'd have a chance at all but Kat talked me into it, and I just thought in the end why not it's an experience for me . MBBC will be and already has been a huge learning curve for me and more steps forward in believing in myself and regaining my confidence.
Is MBBC your first pageant experience?
Describe your character in 5 words.
Cheeky, fun, caring, imaginative, bubbly
You can earn extra points from making public appearances, have you made any so far? Do you have any in the pipeline?
I do have a few in the pipeline, including a charity fashion show, which is my 1st experience with anything like that. My main sponsor is girls and curves closet I have been there this week modeling some of her new stock.
What does winning the crown mean to you?
For me, I suppose its confirmation that actually I don't have to be like everyone else to be worth something. I can be me and girls like me, who were never girly girls, can be in pageants, they can be models, they can be how they look and love it! I had a really tough few years and lost so much confidence and my self belief. Winning the crown would be beyond amazing, its an opportunity to do so much good.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I am pretty crafty, and I'm a qualified cake decorator
Who are your sponsors?
I am sponsored by a local shop Girls and Curves closet who sell plus size fashion. But so far I have other sponsorship from Premier record Fairs and Glossop Business Network as well as some family friends.
If successful you would become one of our Sister Queens, what qualities can you bring to our family?
I'm honest and friendly... and honestly I have a pretty unique outlook on life.. I'm often surprised by myself lol I like to think I'm always there if someone needs me for any reason.
What inspires you most about the MBBC Queens?
How have you found the experience so far?
So far the girls have been lovely, it took me a while to accept my place and I have been terrified since I did, but its also really exciting.
Are you looking forward to the 5th year anniversary event? Have you started shopping?
I have started my shopping! I'm really excited but so nervous too. I think the 5th anniversary event will be something special.
What message do you have for women who are thinking of entering in the future?
As I said it took me a while too accept through doubting myself, could I really do it? Was I good enough? But I decided if I didn't take that leap I would never know and it's amazing being in contact with so many strong confident ladies who really do love themselves for everything that they are. It's amazing to see other people who are like me being so positive and that is contagious, MBBC will be a huge confidence boost the whole process is everything it should be too show women of all shapes and sizes that it's ok! I would say Go for it...
Thank you Stef, I wish you the very best of luck babe xx
