She decided to sign up to Mrs Gibraltar Classic 2022 because she turns 50 this year, and it’s a year to do things she wouldn’t ordinarily do. She saw the advert/promo and thought ‘why not’, "I may be the outsider and feel a little like Miss (Mrs) Congeniality, as a typical English Rose."

Her idea of a perfect day would be relaxing by the pool all day.
She decided to sign up to Mrs Gibraltar Classic 2022 as she works with animals all day every day and she doesn't often have the time to dress up or to feel glamorous. She does love her job, but wearing trainers and running around after dogs all day every day she said can take away all femininity she once had the pleasure to feel.
Apart from this, she wants to show that no matter what a womens choice of career is, she must always take the time for herself, to feel empowered enough to reconnect with her inner and outer beauty and to never lose sight of what makes you smile. She said, no matter the day-to-day obligations we face each day, we must not forget to have fun and do it with a smile. Not to forget......Her 16 year old granddaughter Skye Sofia who pleaded with her to enter. With her eyes filled with excitement, she could not refuse, she would feel forever guilty if she refused her.

Her idea of a perfect day would be a very chilled and peaceful day with basically nothing to worry about, go shopping which is something that she loves to do and finds very relaxing and above all seeing her family and friends happy.
She decided to sign up to Mrs Gibraltar Classic 2022 because apart from thinking about it for the past few weeks, this has always been something she had to do but never had the opportunity to.

She also feels once a women reaches a certain age it’s very important to have forums and groups like this to remind them that they are still full of life and help show others that we are here to empower and encourage each other.
Her daughter and her mother, who is 91, have also encouraged her to enter so she thought why not?
