Miss British Beauty Curve 2016 Contestants; Meet Nickey23:03
Next up in the "Meet the Miss British Beauty Curve 2016 Contestants" series we have the representative from my very own County; Miss Surrey Curve 2016; Nickey.
Name: Nickey Bruce
What made you want to enter MBBC?
It was a long journey of acceptance for me, and now I finally feel like I have the confidence to love myself and MBBC is proving this to myself more and more. MBBC for me is about spreading the word about self-love for everyone and banishing body shaming.
Is MBBC your first pageant experience?
My very first! I'm so nervous!!!
Describe your character in 5 words.
Silly, bold, lover, humorous and clumsy!
You can earn extra points from making public appearances, have you made any so far? Do you have any in the pipeline?
I've done the local paper, hoping to do radio!
I'm doing the Endo-March on 19th March for endometriosis awareness as a sufferer myself! I'm hoping to do the walk for the British Heart Foundation too. Hoping to do race for life and lots of other charity events in my mind!!
What does winning the crown mean to you?
I wouldn't say it's for me, well I would say it would aid me further in my self-love journey. But mainly, I want to do it for the young men and women who see a certain size to be seen as perfect, it would mean the world to portray a positive plus size role model for our younger (and older!) generations! Everyone can love themselves!
Do you have any hidden talents?
I'm a black belt in Karate and I have a meaaaan twerk on me. The rest of my talents can't be mentioned before the 9pm watershed!!!
Who are your sponsors?
I don't currently have one but I'm hoping that will change soon!!
If successful you would become one of our Sister Queens, what qualities can you bring to our family?
What inspires you most about the MBBC Queens?
Well, MBBC queens are who inspired me to go on my journey of self-love - that I think is the most important influence any one person can have on someone. I owe my confidence to these ladies.
How have you found the experience so far?
It's not sunk in yet!! I've been going at 100 miles per hour trying to work, do university interviews for my masters and MBBC - one day soon I'll have time to sit and think! I am loving being part of such a positive group of girls and I cannot wait to meet them all!
Are you looking forward to the 5th year anniversary event? Have you started shopping?
The closer it gets the more excited I'm getting. I've started looking around for dresses but considering making my own because I want some styles quite unique to me! - that's another talent, I'm a master on the sewing machine!
What message do you have for women who are thinking of entering in the future?
Just do it! Once you've considered it, just do it! What's to stop you.. You will only love yourself more in the long run!
Thank you Nickey - I wish you the very best of luck gorgeous x
