Lincoln girl in finals of national beauty competition

A Lincoln girl has reached the finals of a national beauty competition and wants other women to follow their dreams.

Jasmine Foley recently won the title of Mrs Lincolnshire Galaxy and will be competing in the grand final in March with women from around the country.

She grew up in Lincoln and graduated with a first-class degree in Advertising and Marketing at the University of Lincoln.

While working in the city, Jasmine is currently finishing her masters in Journalism at Staffordshire University.

“I’m so excited and honoured to be representing Lincolnshire in the grand final,” said Jasmine after receiving the news.

“There are many misconceptions about pagentry but it is all about supporting your local community, raising money for good causes and creating amazing friendships.

“I decided to compete in this pageant to show girls and women that you should love yourself for who you are and follow your dreams, without fear of what other people may think.”

The winner of Mrs Galaxy UK will travel to America with other contestants next year for the international final.
