Next up in the "Meet the Miss British Beauty Curve 2016 Contestants" series I bring you Miss North London Curve 2016; Velma
Name: Velma Brown
Which area are you representing? North London
What made you want to enter MBBC? For confidence to make something of myself. To be a part
of a community that understands how I feel and to meet people who what to inspire others.
Is MBBC your first pageant experience? Yes
Describe your character in 5 words - A Mother, beautiful, hard working, positive and bold.
You can earn extra points from making public appearances, have you made any so far? No not yet.
Do you have any in the pipeline? No
What does winning the crown mean to you? To me winning is not everything because I think I have
already won as since I find out I am a finalist I have gained so much confidence, I even got a job
and it's something I did not have the confidence to do. Winning the crown would be the
biggest achievement of all apart from my babies. I am super blessed to even be a part of MBBC.
Do you have any hidden talents? I can dance, and I am really good a doing hairstyles.
Who are your sponsors? My family
If successful you would become one of our Sister Queens, what qualities can you bring to our
family? My "can-do" attitude, I don't know really I just want to help others feel good about themselves the way I felt when I discovered the plus movement.
What inspires you most about the MBBC Queens? That they are all plus size woman all beautiful and confident very caring ladies.
How have you found the experience so far? Amazing
Are you looking forward to the 5th year anniversary show, have you started shopping? Oh yes for sure, I can't stop shopping before I used to buy clothing that was 4 sizes too small for me because I kept thinking I am going to fit in them one day. Now I buy my actual size and that is because of MBBC.
What message do you have for women who are thinking of entering in the future? Go for it. It's
the best thing I ever did. Society can make you feel like you have no need to live but since I
discovered the plus size community I no longer have the need to hate myself. So many times I
attempted to take my own life at the age of 14, 23 and selfishly age 28. Even though I had my
kids I felt worthless and fat. I felt like I was not a good mum; all I would do is sleep eat sleep eat.
Come to think of it I first discovered plus size modelling because of Kat Henry on Twitter then I
Googled Ms Curvaceous and it all started from there. Now every day I Google plus size fashion model anything to do with plus size I just wanted to stop feeling sorry for myself and start loving me.
If I can help one person get rid of bad thoughts I have achieved something. Be bold be
beautiful because it is what it is. We are beautiful just as any other women in the world.
I wish you the very best of luck Velma
