Demi-Louise Bailey - Miss Voluptuous UK

  • Print

Demi-Louise Bailey has contacted us with her story about competing in charity pageants, and is competing in Miss Voluptuous UK in September.  She tells us: 

"I was diagnosed when I was 15 (2012)- at this time in my life I was practically immobile. I was forced out of school. I had to force and push to get this diagnosis, I had been discharged and then referred and that process was repeated and FINALLY I was told that my chronic pain, my tiredness, depression, anxiety, ibs. It was all linked.

I've been through several medication changes, my weight has fluctuated massively. Self acceptance was probably the hardest part of my diagnosis. With medication, check ups every 6 months, I am now mobile.

I will not let my disability define me, I am stronger than that.

So I started competing in 2013, when I won the title of Sheppey Princess. I then has a serious ankle injury, which led me to take a break for two years. I've then gone on to compete in charity pageants. But I came back on a national stage again in 2016 as Miss Kent Curve. I placed top 5, won congeniality and publicity award. I've then gone on to compete again and placed first runner up! Won top Top Model!

I am now competing in Miss Voluptuous UK, for my chance to be there first UK queen. This is a platform based competition and Miss Voluptuous directors pride themselves on their girls charity work. So here I am! "

GOOD LUCK ...and be sure to let us know how you get on.
