Jes­sica Sim­mons, 22, a stu­dent living in Ger­rards Cross, fought off nine fi­nal­ists to claim the in­di­vid­ual award in the Food and Drink cat­e­gory at the UK Blog Awards for her blog Nour­ish­ing Jes­sica.

Mis Sim­mons set up her blog as a way to doc­u­ment her pas­sion for food, photography, health and fit­ness, whilst study­ing for a de­gree in culi­nary arts at Uni­ver­sity Col­lege Birm­ing­ham.

She picked up the prize on Fri­day, April 17, and said: “I never in­tended for my blog to be­come some­thing big, but now it is a part of me and who I am.

“Blog­ging to me isn’t just about fol­low­ers and mak­ing money, the change have seen in
